The Network ID Screen is used to enable the Network ID feature for devices on your network. If the DHCP Server is configured with your Network ID, devices will get the Network ID from the DHCP Server and specify it whenever they call home. This will secure the on-boarding process by matching the Network ID from the devices with the Network ID in OmniVista. This helps prevent your devices from being on-boarded/managed by somebody else’s OmniVista.
To edit the Network ID format to input on the DHCP server, click on Organization > Settings > Network ID Settings to bring up the Network ID Information Form.
Network ID to Input on the DHCP Server
You must configure your DHCP Server Option 43, Sub-Option 133 with your Network ID. The Network ID value to be used for configuring your DHCP server is displayed beneath the drop-down. By default, the value is displayed in String Format. Select Hex Format to display the Network ID in Hex Format, if your DHCP Server needs the value to be entered in Hex Format. Click on the Clipboard icon to copy the Network ID to the clipboard and use this value to configure your DHCP Server.
String Format - The Network ID value to be used for configuring your DHCP server. By default, the value is displayed in String Format.
Hex Format - Hex Format encodes each of the characters (including the 0x) to its corresponding hex value, with : as the delimiter.
If your DHCP server supports only hex input, you should use the value shown in the Hex format to configure your DHCP server. The Hex format encodes each of the characters (including 0x) to its corresponding hex value : as the delimiter.
After selecting the Network ID format, click on Create Network ID to create a network ID. You have the option to provide a user supplied key or allow the system to generate an auto generated key.
Advanced Settings Strict Mode
Enables/Disables Strict Mode. When Strict Mode is enabled, devices that do not send a Network ID when they "call home" will not be allowed to be associated with this OmniVista Cirrus System. The system does not allow devices without a Network ID to be associated with OmniVista Cirrus.
By default, strict mode is disabled in OmniVista Cirrus R10.
