The current release simplifies the certification of uncertified OIDs to an existing model type. The device certification tool has a new option to import CSV files. The CSV file must have the mapping of the OIDs to be certified and model type. Importing the CSV updates the device certification tool with the new OID and corresponding model type. Previously, the device certification tool provided a consolidated list of all certified and uncertified SyOIDs. With this improved search option in this release, you can now fetch only the uncertified devices and self-certify those devices.
Ensure that you add the
SNMP Community Stringoptions of the GnSNMP devices under the VNM Model, AutoDiscovery Control, Modeling and Protocol Options.
