How to get the switch name   24 September 2020, 09:19

Hi,
I just downloaded version 3.1.0 and it looks like it's not retrieving the switch name. This was working in previous versions. Mapping a Dell N3048EP-ON stack.
Regards,
Kris

In version 3.1 the switch name was moved to a separate column.

It may first appear as the rightmost column, but you can move it anywhere within the view, as shown below. And if it isn't displayed for you for some reason, please check View - Columns - Switch in the main menu.

That column is blank. Sorry, what I was referring to was that when I do discover a device, its name is blank.

If you mean that device names are blank after you discover new switches, please make sure you have ticked one or more columns in SNMP Device Discovery window. The ticked columns will be used to form device names.
