Due to 3rd party software restrictions, it is not possible to support custom icons.
The reasons for this are as below:
- NMS calls a 3rd party component to draw the network map. The icon you see on the map is embedded in a compiled Flash file. As it cannot be accessed by Windows directory path, the end user has no way to replace the icon with a new one
- The third party component does not provide a way for us to add this. We can only tell the component to draw a switch/router. The third party component controls completely which icon to use to draw the switch/router.
In summary, we cannot cater for this request because the 3rd party component does not provide a way to do this. However, enhancement request NMS-1883 has been raised in the possibility the 3rd party software is changed in future and can enable this customization requirement.
