Discovery and monitoring of devices not supported in PCM 2.3

I'm trying to setup PCM 2.3 to discover and monitor my Tripp-Lite UPS's but I'm having trouble doing so.

I have followed the instructions in the admin guide, creating a .udt and .udd file. I've placed them in the suggested directory without any luck.

Here's a sample of my files:

.udt file:

TrippLite-UPS {
product=TLUPS
model=SU750XL
class=UPS
SYSOID=UPS-1
vendor=Tripp-Lite
}


.udd file:

UPS-01111 {
SYSOID=UPS-1
IP=192.168.1.66
Asset=01
DBID=14595707
Model=SU100RTXL2Ua
Contact=CCMS Shop
Manufacturer=Tripp-Lite
Location=Powerhouse
AllowTraps=true
SerialNo=9524AYAC501500121
SysDesc=TLUPS
SNMP {
Read=public

}
}


I actually had this working in TopTools for the longest time.

Oyama,

There is a similar capability in PCM for extending device support beyond that which is "built in". See the technical paper at http://www.hp.com/rnd/pdfs/CustomizingPCM_041607.pdf for details on using this capability, which is called CIP (Configurable Integration Platform) in PCM's case.
