Features enabled do not match across cluster members for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the features they have enabled are different.

Remediation Steps

Review the licensing and enabled features or modules on each device to ensure they match.

1. Execute the "show feature" and "show license-usage" NX-OS commands to review the enabled features and licenses per vPC peer switch.

2. Both vPC peer switches should have the same licenses installed and features activated.

3. For more information please review the following CISCO NX-OS guides:

How does this work?

This script logs into the Cisco Nexus switch through SSH and retrieves the list of enabled features using the "show feature" command.

Why is this important?

This script logs into the Cisco Nexus switch through SSH and retrieves the list of enabled features using the "show feature" command.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

It is impossible to retreive enabled features information through SNMP and no logs are generated for this information.
