Field

Definition

Name

Name of the selected device.

OID

Detected OID of the selected device.

Description

Description of the device read via SNMP or supplied within the Element details.

Standard Bridge MIB

Whether or not the device appears to support the standard Bridge MIB, 1.3.6.1.2.1.17.

Standard VLAN MIB

Whether or not the device appears to support the standard Switch VLAN MIB, 1.3.6.1.4.1.207.8.9.2.5.2.

Standard IP MIB

Whether or not the device appears to support the standard IP MIB, .1.3.6.1.2.1.4.28.

Current Mapping

The source used for the current Device Mapping for the selected device. If modeled as an existing device mapping, this will list the OID of the device it cloned.

Report Mapping Details to Bradford

If checked, the details of this mapping will be e-mailed using the configured mailer to Fortinet, so we may add them to our product. The e-mail sends only the following information:

  • Logged On User
  • Logged On User Email
  • Appliance Physical Address
  • Device OID
  • Device Description
  • Chosen OID

Model this Device as a Generic SNMP Device

The device will be managed using the available SNMP MIBs. It may require additional details in the Model Configuration to specify VLANs.

Model this Device as a Device Type

The device is not manageable using standard SNMP MIBs. It may be modeled as an SNMP enabled network device of the type specified in the drop-down.

Model this OID from an Existing Device

All devices with the same OID will be mapped when this is selected, if they have not already been mapped as a Generic SNMP Device or Device Type. This OID will have all properties copied from an existing Device Model. Double click a Device Model to see more information.

Device Model

The name of the Device Model copied to this OID. Typing in this field will search the Device Mappings table based on both OID and Model.
