When performing Host Networking by SNMP I receive the following error message for a couple of devices:
<< Progress message, Severity: Warning>>
No host class defined for oid: '18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.896'. Please add the class name to the oidToHostClass.xml configuration file. SNMP description: Cisco IOS Software....
(truncated for brevity)
The devices are named 6506_vss & 6509_vss; based on naming conventions in the environment I'm guessing the devices are involved in a virtual switching system and they are not fully qualified in RTSM (they remain generic nodes). Any way to get these network devices qualified properly?
More info: product is BSM 9.10, CP 10.02 deployed

No, I was looking for an alternative solution and was hoping someone else had run into this problem or a similar one.
I'm not familiar with the process to do so and didn't want to cause more problems by performing surgery on an xml file when I am under-prepared.

This procedure (modifying the XML file) is a common one done thousands of times by different customers. You don't need to be a UCMDB expert to do it. But this is the only way to fix your issue. Create a copy before making any changes if you really fear to do it.

Thanks for helping me w/ the .xml file, I ended up adding this line to it:
<oidToHostClass class="switch" vendor="Cisco" model="VSS-1440" oid="126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.896" />
Basically I copied another line an entered the values I wanted into the fields. It worked except the switch still shows as a generic node in rtsm/cmdb. Should this have put it into the switch CI category or is there another way to accomplish that?
