This option reads the interface information from a modeled device and updates FortiNAC's representation of that device. This information includes the interface's index, description, name, and status. Ports or interfaces are displayed in the order in which they appear in the interface table on the device. Depending on the device and its configuration, ports may not display in order numerically or alphabetically.
Typically, a device's interfaces remain fairly stable and unchanging. However, devices that reside in a chassis or those that can be stacked share management between separate boards or stacked units. When boards or units are added, removed, or repositioned within the chassis or stack, it is necessary to have FortiNAC re-read the device to learn of the changes and display an accurate representation in the Ports tab in Topology. See Ports view for more information.
Note: If the indexing has changed and FortiNAC needs to remodel the interfaces, FortiNAC will delete and recreate new port models to represent the re-indexed switch interfaces. This will affect manual port grouping done for the interface models.
To access this option:
- Click Network Devices > Topology.
- Right-click on the device and select Resync Interfaces.
- Click Yes on the confirmation dialog to continue.
