Multiple SNMP Credentials?

Hi all!

I've got an odd issue, and couldn't find the answer in the KB. I've got everything all set up and working fine, however, I've got one set of devices that ONLY work with SNMP v1, and I've got another set of devices that ONLY work with SNMP v2. Is there a way to set up another set of credentials or scanner to accommodate that? Thanks in advance!

Hello Scine,
thank you for your KB-post.

Conceptually, credentials (SNMP, WMI, now Database) can be set at DEVICE, GROUP, PROBE or ROOT level, this means that you can specify the (SNMP) credentials that work for most of your devices at the Root level and if you have devices that doesn't use those credentials, head to the Settings tab of the individual devices, disable the inheritance of said credentials and explicitly define new ones for that device only.

Best Regards,
