When creating a connector that has an http connection as the main connection and an snmp connection which is only used to retrieve alarm traps, I encoutered the following situation.
Since we have to respect the Order of Communication Ports, I had to set the snmp connection as the main connection, although it's only used for traps.
After switching the content of the Portsettings tag and the Ports tag, and changing the Type tag to snmp with the advanced attribute set to the http connection, the DIS validator indicates the following major warning: The first group is not of type "poll" (implicit or explicit). This group is used for ping functionality. Change the group order or add a ping group.
Since I don't perform gets via snmp, I have no group/parameters that can be polled and used for ping functionality.
I want to get rid of this warning, what is your advice in this case?
Thank you in advance!
There is indeed no need for a ping group in such exceptional case.
This is a known DIS Validator issue and a task already exists for it:
You can ignore the warning for now and we'll try to schedule the fix ASAP.
