Scan monitored objects to verify if the OIDs match

When a monitored node is scanned, the OIDs of the monitored node and the OIDs specified in the poller are compared to see if they match.

These scenarios are possible:

  • If the OIDs do not match, the scan returns a result indicating the mismatch, and the poller cannot be assigned to the monitored node.
  • If the OIDs match, and there is no other poller supporting the specific technology, then the poller is automatically enabled on the node.
  • If the OIDs match, but there is already another poller for the technology, the new poller is not enabled. You can enable the poller manually. See Assign Device Studio pollers to monitored devices.
