beyond the control of this funciton.

This entry must have blanks between the colons, as these are placeholders

respects than it is on Unix, so maybe it is not supposed to work. Someone
should follow up in this with Support if it is not working and they need

To exclude the discovery of non-snmp nodes altogether, you are better off
Unix. You can put the entry in the seedfile
!@oid 0
to exclude discovery of non-snmp nodes.
To include all snmp-enabled object, use this entry
@oid 1.3.6.*
These two entries seem to give different results, so I use the negative.
