Thanks Nick,


See the error I am getting by adding the switch via SNMP and advise.


Could not interpret switch system description string - most likely because no platform interpretor exists for it.

Please see this OSS_SNMP page and consider adding one.

Otherwise use the the manual add method.


I want to add a juniper switch with below version


show version 



Model: ex4550-32t

    We did a workshop on how to set up a basic IXP Manager installation, 

    which you can find here:

    This shows you how to handle initial configuration.
