Enabling Dynamic Updates to a Multiple Instance Module

When you perform a dynamic update to a module, you use a command to modify a module that is loaded and running with System Management Agent. The SMA does not provide a mechanism for dynamically adding and removing instances of managed objects in a multi-instance module. However, you can code your module to enable an administrator or application to use the snmpset command to update the module.

The demo_module_7 code example is used to show how to update a module that has been registered with the agent.
