Yes you can. Some hints are at GitHub: https://github.com/extremenetworks/Netsight-Report-Views/blob/master/DeviceView/Aruba-HP/README.md

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?

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 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
