Changing dependency on a device



Currently, most of my comm devices have PING as their dependency. I would like to change this to one of the SNMP monitors. When I attempt to edit this at the device level, it does not list any of the monitors of the device. How do I change the device dependency?

within your device settings please click the dependency graph beneath chapter "Schedules, Dependencies and Maintenance". This will give you a Device Tree dialog.

Is your device listed here?
