Add your device

If you monitoring system SmartSNO is ready, you can add your first devices. Before you start you must know snmp community name configured on your devices. Usualy we configure same snmp community name on the same tipe devices but this is your decision. For start you must configure only RO (read only) community. For this example I take two switch Extreme X250e with community name smartsno. When devices are configured and everything is done, we can start to add access credentials in SmartSNO. Find Settings and open CredentialsScreenHunter_199 Jul. 10 10.10

You will find two already created credentials, now you can add your own. When you add credentials you can also add username and password or public key to access devices via telnet or ssh through SmartSNO plugin.

Next step is how to add device to the topology. You can add various topology groups, so you have to select topology first.
