    I read in the releas notes:

    Configure Device Window Enhancements

    The Configure Device (formerly Edit Device) window now includes the following

    enhancements:

    The Vendor Profile tab allows you to add, configure, and edit device vendor

    information via Extreme Management Center.

    But I cann't find this tab 😞

    Hello Johan,

    as Pala wrote there are two ways to change Vendor Profiles. The full access is Beta and you have to enable the "Beta Feature".

    But there is a easier way to add only a new device.

    Go to:

    "Devices->right mouse button to the device->Device->Configure Device...->Select "New Vendor Profile"

    Best regards

    Where do I have to put the MIB files ?

    At the window server there is a file called myDeviceTypes.properties. This has to be edit for new device.

    I'm working now with an appliance. Where can I find this file? Is it still there?

    Hello Johan,

    the myDeviceType.properties should be located here:
    /usr/local/Extreme_Networks/NetSight/appdata/System/deviceTypes[/code]
    You will find more details here:

    unfortunately it doesn't work.

    I have created a file myDevicesTypes.properties and added according the info from OneView:

    1.3.6.1.4.1.25506.11.1.135=enterprises.25506.11.1.135
    enterprises.25506.11.1.135=1.3.6.1.4.1.25506.11.1.135
    enterprises.25506.11.1.135.family=hh3c
    enterprises.25506.11.1.135.name=hh3c
    enterprises.25506.11.1.135.treeicon=3
    enterprises.25506.11.1.135.mapicon=hp.gif

    Hmm,

    I see the same behavior in my LAB. Maybe there is still a problem with the change from version 7 to 8. Here is a KB article:

    https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Solution/Device-are-unknown-after-upgrading-to-Ex...

    Mentioned a problem. But the article is one year old.

    In version 8 you should use Vendor Profile feature instead of myDeviceType.properties.

    Hello Pala,

    but Vendor Profile is a beta feature in 8.1.3.65 isn't it?

    Best regards

    There are two parts of Vendor Profiles. Administration -> Vendor profile = this is beta feature where you can do a lot of customization. What you need is not a beta feature = device -> edit device -> vendor profile. This menu is limited and is not beta. Glad it works for you 🙂 Good luck.

    I have an additional tap right to Ports called "New Vendor Profile"

    Yes I am using 8.1.3.65 of XMC.

    I found out that when I point the unkown device I can configure a New Vendor Profile
