script that finds the cdp n and uses that outcome as the interface description

Dear All,

 

I have a script that finds the cdp n and uses that outcome as the interface description.
PS: I found this script on github

 

This script works well, a bit to well. I only want to change the interfaces of the Cisco swicthes as a neighbor not Cisco phones, but I can live with that.

The issue is when I run the script all is well but if the day after someone moves a cable (yes this happens) and I re run the script than I will have 2 interfaces pointing to a neighborg swicth, but only 1 is correct.

 

What is the easiest way to solve this? This is a css script. 

Can I create a script(action) that searches for a part of the description and if that descriptions doesn't have a neighbor anymore, then delete the description on that port? I understand that I will have to run the script atleast Once before this new action will apply.

 

Or how would you solve this?

 

script:

Can you post the output of your "show cdp neighbor detail"?

 

Then we can modify the script

The cool part is you just need to tweak a few lines

 

 

Add a new Trigger Variable:

 

$Plat string

 

Modify the Tigger Template

Platform: [[$Plat]]

 

Trigger-Commands: { $UpdateMade eq "no" and $Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/}

 

 

Now we modify Trigger-Commands:{$Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/}

 

When you are done, do you mind posting it to GitHub and a link to it here?

 

Thanks

I adjusted the script, but I have an issue now when the first device it sees is a phone, the script will stopand won't check the other devices.

 

Now we modify Trigger-Commands:{$Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/ and $Plat not like /Meraki MR/ }

I assume I will need to add this part after the command triggers?

 

Like this?:

 

Trigger-Commands: { $UpdateMade eq "no" and $Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/ and $Plat not like /Meraki MR/ }

config t

Trigger-Commands:{$Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/ and $Plat not like /Meraki MR/ }

Trigger-Commands:
interface $Local_Int
Description Connection to $Neigh_Name on Interface $Neigh_IntName
SET: $UpdateMade = "yes"

Try this

 

Trigger-Commands: { $UpdateMade eq "no" and $Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/ or $Plat not like /Meraki MR/ }
config t
SET: $UpdateMade = "yes"

Trigger-Commands:{ $UpdateMade eq "yes" and $Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone/ or $Plat not like /Meraki MR/ }
interface $Local_Int
Description Connection to $Neigh_Name on Interface $Neigh_IntName

 

I would combine the two not like

 

Trigger-Commands: { $UpdateMade eq "no" and $Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone|Meraki MR/ }
config t
SET: $UpdateMade = "yes"

Trigger-Commands:{ $UpdateMade eq "yes" and $Plat not like /Cisco IP Phone|Meraki MR/ }
interface $Local_Int
Description Connection to $Neigh_Name on Interface $Neigh_IntName
