I noticed that in Prime 1.3, there is an option to add missing vendor OUIs, either via the Admin->System Setting->User Defined OUI, or by uploading a new vendorMacs.xml.
I added several new OUIs using the User Defined OUI page, but in client listings and reports, they are still showing as "Unknown" - Does this require a restart of Prime just as WCS needed?
Has anyone come up with a good method of automating the update of the vendorMacs.xml file? I noticed that Cisco's Prime 1.3 docs state "Updates will be posted from time to time on" but I've yet to see one.
I also found this site, and it does appear to provide a constantly updated vendorMacs.xml. Anyone using it?

I have used that xml from that page, still have some unknowns though

Latest OUI’s can always be found here:


The last one on the list is FCFE77, not too far from FFFFFF .  Only 197,000 OUI’s left! John
