Company Wide Change of Default Gateway
My company is switching our default gateway over in a few weeks and we wanted the ability to scan for machines that haven't been updated by DHCP to the new gateway. Does Inventory have the ability to scan for this?
A custom registry scanner is the way to obtain the information you need. Import the attached Report and Scan Profile. Scan your computers with the profile named "Registry TCP/IP parameters". Then run the report named "Default Gateway".
To further limit the output from the report you can add another filter. Replace 10.0.0.1 with your gateway's IP address.
Awesome. Thank you for your help with this. I was able to use this and it worked great.
Can you please post the profile again? I'm not able to see the attachment.
Hi Charley Horn,
i'm interested too by the having a dynamic collection based on the default Gateway from the computer.
can you send me please the scan profile to do this ?
This will be a little better for Posterity sake:
Here are some screen shots of setting up the scan profile:
Go to Preferences and Create a New scanner:
Setup the Scan profile like this:
Scan a host or hosts with the new scanner and look for this data in the Registry section when you open up a host, only one interface will have a DHCP Gateway entry (in most cases, your mileage may vary):
You can then create a report with computer name, and DHCP Address!
I dont show the report attached. Is this something you could provide again? I am looking to run a report to find default gateway for about 1500 machines.
