Additional notes
The device should now show up and then go green under devices. If it fails to go green, check the community name under the credential is valid. Running "show management" from the CLI will show authorization errors under AuthErrors. In the "show log" output you should also get notification of authorisation errors. If you need to reconfigure anything, you may need to delete and re-add the device.
