Examples

-------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------

This command first uses Get-MonitoringClass to create a monitoring class for network devices. It stores the monitoring class in the $networkdeviceclass variable. It then uses New-DeviceDiscoveryConfiguration to specify a device with the IP address range of 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.4 and with the monitoring class just created. Next, the ReadOnlyCommunity property is set to "CommunityString". The result, stored in the $dc variable, could be used with Start-Discovery to retrieve corresponding device information.


C:\PS>$networkdeviceclass = get-monitoringclass -name 'System.NetworkDevice'$dc = new-devicediscoveryconfiguration -monitoringclass `$networkdeviceclass -fromipaddress 192.168.0.1 -toipaddress 192.168.0.4$encoding = new-object System.Text.UnicodeEncoding$encodedCommunityString = $encoding.GetBytes("CommunityString")$dc.ReadOnlyCommunity = `[System.Convert]::ToBase64String($encodedCommunityString)
