Device Certification Deployer 1.2 for SNMP Collector Generally Available
CA is pleased to announce the general availability of the Device Certification Deployer, DCD 1.2, for SNMP Collector. Starting with DCD 1.1, our UIM customers no longer need to receive all new SNMP device certifications via a SNMP Collector distribution. Instead, the Unified Device Cert team delivers new and updated SNMP device certs via the Device Certification Deployer. DCD 1.x is compatible with SNMP Collector 3.2 and later. The DCD release stream offers SNMP Collector users a simple and more expedient way to add support to monitor and manage a broader range of vendor device models.
Please read on for more information about the new Device Certification Deployer for SNMP Collector; and reach out to me directly for more information.

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.
