Hi, Brains Trusts.
I want to use one driver to service the same brand of transmitter but different variants (150,300, 600, 1000), as we will be using a few different ones depending on the site they are going to.
Below is an example of the transmitter reset OIDs.
Can I replace the transmitter OID with a wildcard, or use some C# to work out what transmitter variant is in use and apply that OID in a fixed param for the wildcard?
<OID type="complete" id="">22.214.171.124.4.1.28142.*.1.476819.365761.806052.549478.0</OID>
I don't have access to the transmitters yet to test this out.
That proposal should work at first sight. Do note however that it is going to depend on the DataMiner version where this will be running on as there were some release notes where the wildcards in SNMP OIDs were not working as expected. The advise would be that this is being executed on at least a 10.2 main release that has the latest CU.
If the transmitters are not available yet to test it out, then it should not be a problem to continue development or test things out. The Device Simulator could be used to test it out. For more info on the device simulator, see this help
