The PortAdmin tool is reached from IP Device Info (under Actions|configure ports).
The tool lets the NAV user set vlan values and descriptions (ifalias) for interfaces.
The leftmost box will display your available vlans. This is the vlans you can set on the interfaces.
A vlan is a member of an organization. A user is also a member of an organization. To be able to set a vlan you must be a member of the same organization as the vlan. As a NAV admin you have no such restrictions.
The interface view is divided into five columns:
To change the interface description (ifalias):
To change the interface vlan:
To change several interfaces at the same time:
The config file is located in the NAV config directory as portadmin/portadmin.conf.
A default vlan is a vlan that is not routed. User should set an interface to this vlan to deactivate this interface. If this vlan is not defined on the switch, you can tell portadmin your default vlan explicitly.
[defaultvlan] vlan = 666 netident = This vlan is not routed.
You may restrict the interface descriptions. This is done by defining a regexp for possible values.
[ifaliasformat] format = \d+
When you enable this restriction, an infobox will display the content of portadmin/aliasformat.html.
