The System Type Manager (STM) is a utility to modify the default behavior of identification. STM lets you customize the type and product name of systems using rules based on responses to SNMP and DMI (Windows only) lists from systems on your network.

For most HP systems, the system type and product name cannot be modified. Outside of this, identification can be customized based on SNMP System Object Identifiers (OIDs). Manufacturers assign unique system object identifiers to their SNMP instrumented products. STM enables you to customize identification by creating rules that map these system object identifiers to product categories and names of their choice. You must have full configuration rights to use STM.
