I configure my Kace K1000 Appliance (version 6.3.113399) to discover HP printers on the different VLAN on my network by SNMP. I made several discovery schedules and add the discover printers to the inventory. Now I try to create a SNMP Inventory Configuration to link some SNMP informations to the device inventory of the printers.

I find OID for model, serial number and manufacturer but I would like to set chassis type to indicate "printer" in the device inventory. Now it shows "unknown". I don't find it in the SNMP Walk Results. Somebody knows if it's possible?

Second question, is it possible to automate adding printers to the inventory and apply them a SNMP Inventory Configuation? During my tests I do this manually.

Thank you for your help

Version 6.4 adds ability for printers to SNMP inventory.  I believe 6.3 would find printers but they would show up as computers in the Device listing and had very limited functionality to read OIDs.

Share SNMP OID and MIB Information
It’s easy to add custom SNMP OID GETs to your Dell KACE K1000 inventory, but where do you find the exact OIDs you need for a specific device? This is the place to share the OIDs and MIBs you have – and to request the ones you need.
