Adding a Device
In this video, we're going to show you how to add a device manually to the system. You'll first start by navigating to the 'devices' tab at the top, and selecting 'device manager'. Once you're in this page, click the menu icon at the top left of the table and select 'add new device'. Now, the name field is not strictly necessary in the sense that you can enter the device's IP address, and then, if the name is resolvable, you will see it down here, and that will be the name of the device. Alternatively, you can enter your own name here for the system.
You can select which device groups, or group, you would like this to be added to. Configure some items regarding the polling of the device. Those of particular importance are the polling frequency, and the 'device hours' tab here. Additionally, if your 'read' or 'write' strings differ from those which you've entered into the cluster manager, you can enter them here. If not, it's perfectly fine to leave them blank. If any of our other polling technologies apply to this device, you can configure those settings here, but those settings are explained in another video.
Once you're done, you just hit 'save as new'. Since I am already self-monitoring this appliance, I will not hit 'save as new'. Instead, I will go back and just show you how one would delete a device. Simply go to 'tools', and select 'delete selected'.
In addition to these videos, remember that the SevOne NMS Guide is available on every appliance. Just click the question mark at the top right of any page. This will automatically bring you to the section of the product manual that corresponds to the page you are currently on.
