Port Sync - Performing a Port Sync

Initially a port sync goes to the switch and brings all port numbers (EQN for EWSD) from the switch into the cairs.net database.  Subsequent syncs compare the port numbers in the cairs.net database with the ones in the switch.  If cairs.net is missing any port numbers, those numbers show up as ‘out-of- sync’ numbers.  Those ‘out-of-sync’ port numbers can then be imported into the cairs.net database. 

Performing a Port Sync

Run a Port Sync automatically  by setting up a Sync Schedule.  (Please refer to the ‘Creating a Sync Schedule’ section.)  To run a Port Sync manually, complete the following steps:

1.       Click the System Admin menu.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click the plus (+) sign next to Data Sync Center to expand the menu items.

3.       Click EWSD Switch Sync Project.

4.       The Switch Sync Project list opens to the right.  Within the list, double click the project to view.

5.       The Switch Sync – [Switch Recurrence] window opens.  Within the Port Sync ribbon group, click the Get Switch Ports button. 

6.       To send the script to the switch click Yes to the message.  Cairs.net then executes the port sync.

Viewing Ports Sync Results

After a port sync, you can view all ‘in-sync’ (records in both cairs.net and in the switch) and ‘out-of-sync’ port numbers (records that are missing in cairs but are in the switch).

Skip steps #1 through #5 if you have just completed a manual sync and/or you are already in the Switch Sync window.

1.       Click the System Admin menu.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click the plus (+) sign next to Data Sync Center to expand the menu items.

3.       Click EWSD Switch Sync Project.

4.       The Switch Sync Project list opens to the right.  Within the list double click the project to view.

5.       The Switch Sync – [Switch Recurrence] window opens.

6.       To view the in-sync port data (data in the cairs.net database and in the switch), click the In Sync button within the Port Sync ribbon group.  The Sync Details pane opens displaying the set device records.

7.       To view out-of-sync port data (data in the cairs.net but not in the switch database or data within the switch but not in the cairs.net database), click the upper portion of the Out of Sync button within the Port Sync ribbon group.  The Sync Details pane opens displaying the out-of-sync data. 

8.       To resolve the out-of-sync port numbers, refer to the ‘Resolving Ports Sync Discrepancies’ section.

9.       To exit, click Close.

Resolving Port Sync Discrepancies

To resolve out-of-sync port number records, cairs.net offers an import function that brings the switch port numbers into the cairs.net database.

Skip steps #1 through #5 if you have just completed a manual sync and/or you are already in the Switch Sync window.

1.       Click the System Admin menu.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click the plus (+) sign next to Data Sync Center to expand the menu items.

3.       Click EWSD Switch Sync Project.

4.       The Switch Sync Project list opens to the right.  Within the list double click the project to view.

5.       The Switch Sync – [Switch Recurrence] window opens.  Double click the sync project

6.       To view and resolve the out-of-sync port data (data within the cairs.net database, but not the switch, or data within the switch but not in the cairs.net database), click the upper portion of the Out of Sync button within the Set Device Sync ribbon group. 

7.       The Sync Details pane displays all port numbers in the switch and not in the cairs.net database.  

8.       To resolve all discrepancies at once and import all out-of-sync ports into cairs.net, click the lower portion of the Out of Sync button to access a dropdown list.  From the list, select Import All.   

9.       To resolve an individual record, double-click a record to review.  The Switch Sync window opens displaying two panes. 

·         Cairs Data pane – displays the port number details if the record is in the cairs.net database and not in the switch.

·         Switch Data pane – displays the port number details if the record is in the switch and not in cairs.net.

10.   If the information within the Cairs Data pane is populated, the port exists within the cairs.net database and not in the switch.  You can delete the set from cairs.net by clicking the Delete button within the Switch Sync Import popup.  There is no undo button so once you click Delete the set is gone. 

11.   If the information within the switch pane is populated, the port exists within the switch but not in the cairs.net database.  Import the individual ports by clicking the Import button within the Switch Sync Import popup. 

12.   To exit, click Close.
