Yes - if ICMP (ping) is not enabled on the switch or the network between the Core and the target device, then the plugin will not function properly. Once ICMP is available, the plugin will work as expected.


Particularly noteworthy if a customer has one of our Dell EMC switches running early configurations that did not have ICMP enabled.
