In a enterprise network, what would be the right way to generate a list of switches (SNMP managed)
Is it reasonable to ask the organization to supply a list such as this:
- Switch name
- IP Address of switch
- SNMP community strings
Or are there standard ways to run discovery scans - UDP broadcasts?
After having generated a repository such as the above; given a single switch, how to query it for the list of all devices attached to it?
Finally, how to selectively power down/power up ports? (remotely - using SNMP)
Platform is going to be .NET based (C#) and the library being used is SharpSNMP
