If certified, the device has an associated vendor file created by Entuity Support. A certified vendor file ensures the device MIB is correctly interrogated and that the device has the correct device type.
If uncertified, the device has an automatically created vendor file, which is only an interim solution until a certified file can be provided.

In the Certified, Reachable and Added columns, there will be a status icon:
- - using certified vendor support.
- - using generic management, contact your Entuity representative to obtain a certified vendor file.
- - not yet determined if certified support exists for this device.
- no icon - some device types, such as VM hypervisors or cloud controllers, do not require vendor files and so there will be no icon.
- - OK, in this state for [time].
- - ICMP not responding, in this state for [time].
- - no ICMP reachability info currently available.
- - device successfully added to the inventory.
- - device is queued for addition.
- - error, device failed to add. Hover over the icon to see the reason for failure.
If a device has failed to add, you can edit the parameters in the Modify Device window and click OK to re-queue the device for addition to the device inventory.
To view all devices under management via reports:
There are a number of reports in ENA that provide details of the devices under management:

You can use the Contents dashboard to see the devices under management in the specific View. For example, if you navigate to the All Objects View and then open its Contents dashboard, you will see the devices under management (as well as the services, network paths etc that you have specified).
