Maintain 2.4.1 Bug Report from abramss

Ooo Ooo I have an idea, unless it already is in MAINTAIN - a way for admins to load their own plugins (gadgets) that would not affect other admins. Maybe this would need an approval process or they could be hosted in a central store and you subscribe to them.

For example, one that I need is a simple tool to allow me to initiate from maintain a way to power cycle a Power over Ethernet port with one button. 

This would require the script to be written probably in PERL (for maintain) use the SNMP lib and for me to provide the specific credentials for that device and the specific OID info for the function. All of this would be supplied to PERL script from a config associated with the switch device (listed in MAINTAIN (M) ). 

The MSG would first query (M) for the MAC of the user device which will be needed when looking up the port on the switch. This MAC lookup in (M) is based on the record info in (M) for said device.

The MSG would then used the switch config data to affect the PoE port power cycle.

The MSG should be a tool that is authorized by a higher authority, in this case those responsible for the switches would authorize certain zone admins to see and use the MSG which would appear as a clickable button, in this case, on the appropriate (M) screens.
