You can run a workflow to register an SNMP device and optionally configure advanced connection parameters.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows and enter the snmp and device_management tag in the workflow search box.
  3. Locate the Register an SNMP device workflow and click Run.
  4. In the Device address text box, enter the IP address or DNS name of the SNMP device.
    Note: To establish a more reliable connection, use an IP address.
  5. (Optional) In the Name text box, enter a name for the device as you want it to appear in the Inventory view.
    If you leave the text box blank, the device address is used to generate a name automatically.
  6. (Optional) To configure the advanced connection parameters, select the check box, and navigate to the Advanced tab.
    1. In the Port text box, specify the connection port.
      The default port is 161.
    2. From the Version drop-down menu, select the SNMP version that you want to use and provide the credentials.
      The support for SNMPv3 is limited to the AuthPriv security level with MD5 authentication. The DES passphrase is the same as the MD5 password.
      Note: The support for SNMPv3 is deprecated.
    3. In the Community name text box, enter a name for the device. The default name is public.
  7. Click Run.

Results

After the workflow runs successfully, the SNMP device appears in the Inventory view.
