CA is pleased to announce the general availability of the Device Certification Deployer, DCD 2.3, for CA UIM SNMP Collector. Starting with DCD 1.1, CA UIM customers no longer need to receive new device certifications via a SNMP Collector GA distribution.  Instead, our Unified Device Certification team delivers new and updated SNMP device certs via the Device Certification Deployer. Our independent DCD release schedule offers CA UIM SNMP Collector #users a simple and more expedient way to add support to monitor and manage a broader range of vendor device models.


Note: DCD 2.3 requires SNMP Collector 3.21 or above.

How do I apply DCD 1.x or 2.x to SNMP Collector? 

Find instructions for deploying DCD 2.3 to SNMP Collector 3.21 or above here: device_certification_deployer


How do I request new certification of my SNMP device for a future DCD release?

 In order to request a new device cert, all one needs to do is to provide a complete SNMP walk (using SAPro) from the device model that will need to be monitored as configured and the manufacturer's MIB file along with any specific OID, statistic, or metric requirement info via a new SNMP Collector Support ticket.  Support opens the request for development in the next available DCD release.
