Seed files are great in a large networked environment. Data can easily be manipulated in a spreadsheet to import.
SNMP v1 or v2c files
With a simple v1 or v2c SNMP discovery, simply list the names in a single column in a text file.
SNMP v3 seed files
For SNMP v3 discovery, you will have to create several fields in the seed file.
This can be accomplished in a text editor or excel\calc. Each value is tab delimited with each device on a separate line.
<Device Name or IP> SNMPVERSION=V3 USER=<v3user> AUTHPROTOCOL=<MD5 or SHA> AUTHPASS=<XXXXXX> PRIVPROTOCOL=<DES or AES> PRIVPASS=<XXXXXXX>
