You can create a network topology map either using the Create Docu wizard, the Topology wizard or in the tree by clicking on the Topology map or VLAN Map node.
A network topology map shows the interrelations of switches, virtual switches and systems in a network environment. Switches are scanned using an SNMP systems inventory scan. For virtual switches, you need to perform a VMware Infrastructure inventory scan.
In the Create Map for combobox, you can select whether the maps are to be created for the Company & Domain, for the Domain only, or for the Company only. Only domains selected in the Domain Selection step are considered.
In the maps for the company, all selected domains are combined in one map.
Use the Ignore Virtual Structures checkboxes to determine, if the Topology Maps and the VLAN Maps should include virtual structures.
Docusnap will generate additional maps for switches and virtual switches that have been selected in the Switch Maps table. These maps will show the systems connected to the selected switch.
Click on the Preview button to open a preview of the maps, in which further settings can be defined.
The maps for the company will be stored in the Maps folder below the company.
If you create the maps for the domain, the Visio and html files will be stored in the Maps folder of that domain.
The maps can be created by clicking on the Topology Map or VLAN Map node in the tree.These maps are always created using the current data and are generated each time they are opened. The optional settings can also be made for the ad hoc plans.
The following options can be defined in the wizard and for the ad hoc maps.
Some of these options are only available for the topology map.
Edit Systems: Click on the Edit Systems button to open a dialog for selecting the switches. The detailed plan is only created for the selected switches.
