I have a network admin problem, is there a simple and minimally disruptive way to identify for a given network cable where it goes into the switch?
I have a lot of unlabelled cables and unlabelled ethernet sockets which ultimately connect to various switches I would like to be able to identify which goes where.
I have a cable tester but using that would involve un-plugging every end at the device and plugging each switch end into the other part of the cable tester, trying to find the correct end, I have to do this on my own so this would be a very tedious task and distruptive to the users affected.
Is there a cable tester that will produce a certain sequence of flashes in the switch to shew that it is the correct one, or is there some other way to identify the cable with less disruption?
Also can anyone recommend a device for attaching labels to cables that wont easily fall off?
