Adding Switches to the SNMP Sources List

You can add switches to the SNMP Sources list either by using Quick Discovery or by using Add. If you add a switch to your infrastructure or a switch you expected to see in the sources list does not appear, you can run Quick Discovery to try to find it. If the switch is still not found, use Add to manually configure the switch.

  1. On the SNMP Sources page, click the vw-icon-hamburger.png menu and select Quick Discovery.

    If Virtual Wisdom discovers new switches, they are added to the SNMP Sources list.

  2. If the switch you want is not discovered, click Add.

    The Switch Configuration dialog displays.
