Hi librenms,

In includes/discovery/os/pulse.inc.php string for $sysDescr ('Pulse Connect Secure') is incorrect. Our Pulse devices will only be discovered after I changed string to only 'Pulse Secure', because SNMPv2-SMI::mib- returns:

sysDescr.0 = STRING: Pulse Secure, LLC,Pulse Connect Secure,VA-SPE,8.2R1 (build 41241)
sysDescr.0 = STRING: Pulse Secure,LLC,SA-2500,8.0R13 (build 38659)
sysDescr.0 = STRING: Pulse Secure,LLC,SA-6500,8.0R13 (build 38659)

There is also a newer MIB file for Pulse devices (REVISION "201607071610Z") - see attached files.

Hi Stephan,

When I created this module last year it worked on real device and on the virtual one.
So far, it still work for us in production. Maybe you have another version as Pulse was just another company out of Juniper. ;-)

So maybe the best way to fix it is to put a "or" instead or delete the old variable match.

It would be great if you could post sysDescr and sysObjectID pairs so we can improve the tests.

Are all these different products? Do they do the same thing, same os? You need to give us a bit more info to work this out - I'm not a user of Pulse products nor do I know anything about them.

All of them are different variants of same product (Neoteris/Juniper/Pulse Secure client-to-site VPN gateway) with same OS (called IVE, a hardened Redhat) but different versions, running on different x86 hardware (RAM, CPU, HDD).

So we should be renaming this from pulse to ive then?


no, Pulse is ok, only the logo should be updated from Juniper to PulseSecure too:
but this is all just cosmetic: the issue is in "includes/discovery/os/pulse.inc.php" string for $sysDescr ('Pulse Connect Secure')
