When performing Host Networking by SNMP I receive the following error message for a couple of devices:
<< Progress message, Severity: Warning>> No host class defined for oid: '18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.896'. Please add the class name to the oidToHostClass.xml configuration file. SNMP description: Cisco IOS Software.... (truncated for brevity)
The devices are named 6506_vss & 6509_vss; based on naming conventions in the environment I'm guessing the devices are involved in a virtual switching system and they are not fully qualified in RTSM (they remain generic nodes). Any way to get these network devices qualified properly?
This procedure (modifying the XML file) is a common one done thousands of times by different customers. You don't need to be a UCMDB expert to do it. But this is the only way to fix your issue. Create a copy before making any changes if you really fear to do it.
Basically I copied another line an entered the values I wanted into the fields. It worked except the switch still shows as a generic node in rtsm/cmdb. Should this have put it into the switch CI category or is there another way to accomplish that?
