Managed entity variables

The Self-Announcing Netprobe can set a list of user-defined variables to be created on the Managed Entity.

In the following scenarios, the Gateway will ignore these variables and report an error in both the Gateway and Netprobe logs.

<var name="var_stdAESPassword">
 <stdAESPassword>
  <stdAES>+encs+CFB98A43AD52E4D2772030514B49B906</stdAES>
 </stdAESPassword>
</var>

Netprobe log:

ERROR: SelfAnnouncing Message from gateway '<PROBENAME>' (<HOST:PORT>): var_stdAESPassword ignored, as Self Announcing Probes do not support stdAESPassword variable type.

Gateway log:

ERROR: DirectoryManager var_stdAESPassword ignored, as Self Announcing Probes do not support stdAESPassword variable type. [/variables[@disabled!="true"][1]/var[@disabled!="true"]
<var name="var_ActiveTime">
 <activeTime>
  <activeTime ref="Nonexistent"> </activeTime>
 </activeTime>
</var>

Netprobe Log:

ERROR: SelfAnnouncing Message from gateway '<PROBENAME>' (<HOST:PORT>): Variable var_ActiveTime ignored, because ActiveTime 'Nonexistent' does not exist.

Gateway Log:

ERROR: DirectoryManager Variable var_ActiveTime ignored, because ActiveTime 'Nonexistent' does not exist. [/variables[@disabled!="true"][1]/var[@disabled!="true"]
