Dump all your device descriptions to a spooled file.
<b>DSPDEVD DEVD(*ALL) OUTPUT(*PRINT) </b>
Once this finishes <ul>
search the report for the IP address in question</ul>
It’s not pretty but it’s faster than writing a CL.
The field your looking for is: <b>Remote location:
Name or address ……….: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx</b>
It’s about half way down the list of details on a device.
<b>Here’s what you might want to do to make this easier going forward.</b>
When I’m managing systems with hundreds of IP printers I usually add entries to the Host table.
The host names I match up with the printer name. (Less guess work)
That way when you need to find an IP address or a device name you can go straight to the host table and find it there and then go back and update the printer when needed.
My host tables are always bare except for printers. I rely heavily on DNS servers to resolve addresses.
Be leary of an AS400 with tons of Host table entries!
