I know my devices, so i prefere to enable SNMP on a per-device basis,
while scanning all the network for finding SNMP devices...

0) Ok, on 'Home > Plugins > FusionInventory' i push 'Discover the
 network', the radar.

1) then i setup a ip range, for now a subclass of my network (
 ->, defining no ''permanent tasks''.
Hit 'Next'.

2) SNMP auth have the predefined public authentication for v1 and v2c,
 leave untouched, hit 'Next'.

3) link rules; as in my previous thread i've disabled the last 'Unknown
 device import' and created a recipe 'Unknown device with serial'.
Anyway, hit 'Next'.

4) i add a task, name 'Discover test', 'Active' of course 'yes', mode
 push, priodicity none; I've leaved 'Definition' and 'Action' as is.
Hit 'Next'.

5) cheched the new task, then hit 'Force start'. Nothing happen, i go
 to 'task running result' but the page are empty.

So i go back to 4) and define as 'Definition' the ip ranges defined in
1), and as 'Action' 'Auto management dynamic of agents'.

Same result, nothing happens.
