A vendor often has dozens of device types and each device type may contain several models with different configuration formats. Consequently, a device type in the system may need multiple drivers to support all modes. The Vendor Model function associates vendor model information and other properties to each device type. With this information, the system can issue specific commands to corresponding device models for data retrieval.
If a discovered device sysOID is not included in the vendor model list, it will be identified as an unclassified device. You need to log the information about this unclassified device in the vendor model list first and then rediscover the device.
