Displaying Fabric Nodes

Netvisor ONE uses fabric keepalive packets to determine the state of each fabric node. To display the state, use the fabric-node-show command with the syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-node-show [state offline| online|in-band-only-online|mgmt-only-online|fabric-joined|eula-required|setup-required|fabric-required|fresh-install]

Netvisor ONE supports monitoring and reporting on both management and in-band network, therefore the node state can be one of the following:

  • online — reach-ability of node over both management and in-band interfaces
  • In-band-only-online — reach-ability of node through in-band channel only
  • mgmt-only-online — reach-ability of node through management network only
  • offline — no reach-ability over either communication channel.

In this example, Netvisor ONE displays the online node state in the command output:

Also check the fab-tid value for consistency on each node. See the Troubleshooting the Fabric section for details.
