Ubiquiti Networks devices show up as Frogfoot Networks devices

Certain devices show up as Frogfoot Networks devices.


All Orion environments


When NPM polls the device via SNMP for OID (the sysobjectID used to identify objects), the Ubiquiti returns a value of 100002, which is the sysobjectID publicly registered to FrogFootNetworks. This can be verified using the link:

With each release, all ID numbers are compiled in the above link into the SWDiscovery.cfg file in C:\Program Files\Solarwinds\.


  • There are a few ways to approach this problem.  If, in fact, this is an oversight on Ubiquiti's part, you might first want to reach out to their support to confirm whether they intended to report the sysobjectID as shown above and let them know that it most likely needs to be changed to something like:


      Ubiquiti Networks, Inc.

  • One other way to mitigate this would be to import the custom poller from the thwack community below as a workaround (the article gives a guide on how to import the Device Studio Poller): ...|_____7

  • This can also be submitted as a standard feature request to be overwritten in subsequent versions.
