How to Manually Add Device Classification for Unknown Devices

Step 1:

Nectus maintains internal device classification database where each device is assigned a major platform category and a device model name.

Classification is associated with device SNMP Platform OID: (.

Classification database is updated daily and support for new devices included in every Nectus update. But in some rare cases Nectus might not have classification info for specific device and this device will appear under “Unknow Category” in SNMP device tree.

Nectus GUI allows customer to manually add Unknown device classification information directly into Nectus server database.

Right-click on SNMP Platform ID value and select “Add Product Definition for x.x.x.x.x.x.x” from the SNMP Devices context menu.
