You need to determine if the printer is already defined generically (TYPE = Host), in one of the existing SDK certification files. Certification files are named oid2type_*.conf and are found in the BASEDIR/smarts/conf/discovery directory.

If the printer OID is already present in one of the existing certification files, use sm_edit to edit the particular oid2type file to comment out the entry.

In this procedure, the printer OID, ., is also defined in BASEDIR/smarts/conf/discovery/oid2type_Misc.conf.

To remove the generic definition:

  1. Edit the oid2type_Misc.conf file, by using sm_edit.

                   /smarts/bin/sm_edit conf/discovery/oid2type_Misc.conf
  2. Comment out the entry for the duplicate OID by preceding the lines with a pound sign (#):

                   #. {
    #  TYPE = Host
    #  VENDOR = HP
    #  Interface-Fault   = MIB2
    #  Interface-Performance  = MIB2
  3. Save and close the file.

    The edited copy is saved in the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/discovery/ directory.
