How to Manually add Power Strips to NodeGrid via WebUI

            Power Strip requirements: 

            - it must have a network interface (smart PDU)

            - it must be a switched PDU


            Select Managed Devices :: Devices, click the Add button to add a device in the system. For the purpose of this example, provide the following information:


            • On the Name field, enter the name of the power strip you want to add.
            • Enter the IP address of the power strip. Make sure the IP address is reachable by the NodeGrid Manager.
            • On the Type field, select the pdu type options (APC, MHP2, PM3000, Raritan, Servertech, Enconnex).
            • Enter username and password of the admin user account of the power strip, or select Ask During Login option if you want to provide the admin credentials during the login time, and then click the Save For a faster response from the power strip, change protocol from SSH to SNMP as follows:
              • Scroll down the Devices page, and click on the Power Strip name just added
              • Click on Management tab and Enable SNMP and Version, and enter the ReadWrite community (check Power Strip’s SNMP settings). Save.
              • Click on Commands tab, and click on Outlet command.
              • Check Enabled checkbox, set Protocol to SNMP and click on Save and then Return.
              • Click on Outlets Tab and confirm the outlets are listed


            The power strip (pdu) should now appear under Access page and it should be ready for access. For outlets, click on the power strip name.


            Further configuration on Managed Devices :: Devices is available in order to enable tunnel, monitoring, scripts, data logging, event logging, alerting and custom fields for this type of device.
