Removed but not deleted network devices
03-10-2020 08:10 AM
We currently keep network devices in the NetMRI database for 30 days after their physical removal (in order to retain the device configuration backup). However, this leads to connection/login errors when running automated CCS/Pyhton scripts on the removed devices (part of a device group). The change blackout feature could be a possible answer but I believe it can only be applied to a group / network rather than individual devices and the 'locked change' attribute still tries to login to the removed devices.
Is there a NetMRI attribute / feature to identify physically removed devices to "skip" them during job automation?
I suppose we could create a custom field to identify removed devices and filter on them within automation job/scripts but just wondering if there's a built-in feature in NetMRI we can leverage.Thanks.

You can exclude them from the Group and/or create another group with those devices base on the custom fields.
