Different VLAN types alert


The details shown below are based on the default settings. Options for editing this alert don’t include the ability to edit the trigger or clear condition definitions. You can specify whether the alert should clear based on how it’s configured, or whether it should have no clear condition and be cleared manually.


Primary purpose: Notify of a possible misconfiguration for a device’s interfaces.

For example, one side of the connection is set to Access while the other side is set to Trunk. Traffic is potentially not being passed properly or secured. 

Alert severity


Repetitive alert pause condition

After 5 occurrences within 2 hours against a specific entity, pause the alert for 24 hours

Alert trigger condition

Connected interfaces have different VLAN numbers.

Alert clear condition

Misconfiguration has been resolved.

Action(s) to be taken

Check the device’s configuration and change the VLAN type on the incorrectly configured interface. If it’s supposed to be Access, change to Access. If it’s supposed to be a Trunk, change to Trunk.
