To understand the terms and concepts above please refer to opAddress Concepts page. You should also get an understanding of how opAddress gathers information from How opAddress discovers information
We need to tell opAddress about NMIS, for most people who will use the default settings, you will want to add your NMIS server to the default Network Domain. To do this, access the menu option "System -> Edit Network Domains", then click on the network domain named "default", you should now see a screen where you can add the NMIS server details for management servers.
To edit a Network Domain, click on the View icon of the domain.
Select NMIS as Type and http://localhost to URL. Then click save.
Access the Linux OS and run the integration manually, as the root user run the following command to automatically import the NMIS data
opAddress automatically creates address entries, inferred from the subnets it knows of. When opAddress FIRST creates the address entry it will give it an "admin status" this defaults to an "admin status" of "unknown" which is a very safe option but not so useful if we want the IP address to be scanned and reported on in a useful way. We recommend in most instances to change the default "admin status" on creation to "allocated" or "unallocated".
To change the default address status, edit the following opCommon.nmis (using vi or nano etc).
'opaddress_default_address_state' => undef,
'opaddress_default_address_state' => "allocated", # or "unallocated"
