I have the mibs for the bigswitch
it is composed of leafs and spines. We use HP swithes for this.


Is this being discovered as a Generic device?

No it is being discovered as a big switch but I would like to get it to use the mibs that I have from Bigswitch. I’m having trouble with a couple of items.
How do I tell snmptranslate that there is a new file to look at?
How do i get a list of “You will then need to create a list of the OIDs you wish to use in the OS definition.”?

So it was discovered as a generic device? and looks like you used the script to make the new discovery of the device correct?

When I run this from the Web gui via the capture window it seems to work some what but still not using the mibs they have
. the output is very big

I have tried both CLI and the webgui. I also turn on the mibs for just this device

That’s not how you add support for a New Device…

You may want to submit the issue in git hub with all required info asking for Add support for New Device.

Or you can code it yourself and make a pull request.
