1. Attach the IP domain manager to the Domain Manager Administration Console.

  2. Expand the tree on the left pane and navigate to the device.

  3. Right-click the device and select OID Info.

    The OID Info window displays the following columns:

    • Type –The type of class, Discovery or Monitoring.

    • Component – Contains the Probe Name such as Containment and Performance in case of Discovery type, and Entity name such as Interfaceand Port in case of Monitoring type.


      The Bridge-probe component is only available for Discovery type classes, Switch and Bridge.

    • Entity – Contains the Driver Name in case of Discovery type and the Instrumentation class name in case of Monitoring type.

    • OID – The SNMP OID associated with the device.

    • Description – Description of the SNMP OID or discovery probe if available.

      • For Monitoring type, this field contains the attribute name of the SNMP OID or discovery probe.

      • For Discovery type, due to the limitations of IP Manager, this field is either empty or contains a generic description of the SNMP OID or discovery probe.


        Monitoring classes of devices that donot have an OID associated with it, will not be listed in the OID Info window.

        The OID Info option is disabled for the following object types because these objects do not have a system OID or an SNMP agent associated with them:

    • AuthenticationServer

    • BladeEnclosureManager

    • VSSChassis

    • WirelessClient


      Objects discovered in ICMP only mode, objects not having a SysOID, objects not having an associated SNMPAgent object in the topology, and thin clients WirelessAccessPoints will also be ignored.
