Go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management and click the Add button. Fill in all of the required fields.

You should call TAC and speak with the licensing or entitlement teams (probably entitlement). They should be able to help you out.

You will need to run a new Campus Data Collection after adding the device to DCR. If you have configured any Data Collection filters, make sure that they allow this device to be managed by Campus Manager.

when added manually, asking for enter standard credential. what is that. use any user name and password? router login password.there is credential password on other devices since the old admin left did not know the password. or either any way to recover or reset the new one.

You need to use the username and password that you normally use to login to the device via telnet or SSH. If you do not need a username, leave that field empty.

If you need to recover the password on the device, consult the password recovery guides on
