New Identification! Auvik has identified new models for 23 L3 Switch and L2 switch models from vendors D-Link, Extreme, Allied Telesis, Planet Technology, Sandvine, FS, Nokia/Acatel-Lucent, Allen-Bradley, Cisco Business, Juniper Networks, H3C; 23 router models from vendors Lancom, Nokia/Acatel-Lucent, Cosco, Kenton Group, CXR; one firewall model from vendor Watchguard; four access points from vendors Cambuim, Fortinet, Ruckus and several printers, which include models from vendors, Xerox, Apeos, Toshiba, Konica Minolta, Lexmark, and FujiFilm Revoria.
Generic Device Improved Identification: Auvik implemented some changes to improve identification of MAC addresses. Devices that were previously identified as “Generic Device” may now be identified with additional attributes.
There are some rare instances where a managed “Generic Device” will have its device class updated to a router, switch, firewall or controller which will increase the count of billable devices reflected in a subscription. If you believe the classification is incorrect, you may un-manage the device.
Is it recommended to review any newly identified devices, and if you need to un-manage any devices, please so do ASAP to avoid being billed for these devices.

Volunteers wanted. Auvik will begin Beta testing with a new docker collector for x86/x64 processors and is looking for volunteers to work with as Auvik develops this functionality in its platform. The testing has been extended and the new anticipated start date is July and will run through to September. Please contact your Customer Success Manager to see about participating.
Please upgrade your collector. Ubuntu free support has run out.
The Ubuntu 18.04 version is not supported but will continue to work with your Auvik tenant until July 29, 2023. By then the 18.04 Ubuntu versions will no longer be compatible with Auvik's systems. The preferred upgrade is to 22.04.
User intervention, while minimal, is required. Auvik has provided information on how to perform this upgrade. Instructions are located here. Auvik has also provided an updated FAQ page if you have any questions about this upgrade. Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or Support if you have any questions it does not address.
