The Devices page lists the devices that Network Discovery connects to when probing for network resources. When adding or updating a device, you can configure the following attributes:

Field Description
Configuration

The Configuration that contains the device, as specified in Address Manager.

Device name

The current name of the device.

Probe label

The docker container that runs the discovery probe for the Network Discovery app to which the policy applies.

IP addresses

The IPv4 or IPv6 address of the device.

SNMP port

The SNMP port number.

SNMP version

The SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) version used by the device.

This can be v1, v2c, or v3.

SNMP VRF context list

The list of SNMP VRF (virtual routing and forwarding) contexts to use during discovery network operations. Separate multiple contexts with commas (,).

If left blank, discovery operations will use all VRF contexts in the network.

Note: Unless specified by BlueCat support, leave this field empty. The Network Discovery app will automatically discover all available VRF contexts in the network.
Skip neighbor discovery

If selected, neighbor discovery operations are skipped. Neighbor discovery protocols let nodes on the same link more easily find neighbors (other nodes and routers on the same network).

SNMP MGMT context list

A list of SNMP Management VRF contexts to use during neighbor discovery operations. Separate multiple contexts with commas (,).

If left blank, discovery operations will discover all neighbor VRFs in the network.

Note: Unless specified by BlueCat support, leave this field empty. The Network Discovery app will automatically discover all available neighbor VRF contexts in the network.
