As its name indicates, you use the Add a single device option in Discovery Central if you only need to add a single device.

The Add a Node option (All Nodes > Manage Nodes) provides a second way to add a single node using the same wizard screens as in the following steps.

  1. Click Settings near the top right of the application window.
  2. Click Discovery Central in the Getting Started with Orion category.
  3. Click Add a single device.
  4. Enter appropriate values in Define Node, and then click Next.
    1. In Host name or IP address, specify the value and check Dynamic IP Address (if you intend to monitor through SNMP), ICMP (if you want an up or down indication through network ping), or External (NA for SolarWinds UDT).
    2. In SNMP Info, select the version, port, and enter the correct read and read and write access string information.
  5. Choose appropriate node resources to monitor.
  6. Check Scan device for ports.
  7. Based on the list of discovered ports, check the ones that you want UDT to monitor.
  8. Review the polling properties and adjust as needed. When you are ready, click OK, Add node.
