Is DeviceID unique? If some device fields change, how does InfoBlox maintain the association?

Hi,

I need to know:

  1. Is DeviceID unique?
  2. If a device is "permanently" removed from the inventory, can a DeviceID be "retired"? If so, is there a possibility that the same DeviceID can be reused in the future?
  3. If a DeviceID is unique and never reused, and some device on the network that already has a DeviceID (e.g., 12345) changes such that one or more of its tracked data fields change, how does InfoBlox know it's still the same device (12345)?  Or in other words, what data fields must *not* change? E.g., vendor, etc.

Thanks!
