How to move nodes of the unknown vendor in different vendor group without data loss.

Hi Folks,

I want to know how to move the nodes of the unknown vendor in different vendor group (like VMware, Solaris, net-SNMP like that )without data loss (data loss means CPU, memory, or tickets etc).

  • Hi,

    You will only lose previously collected data when changing the polling method like SNMP --> WMI etc.

    "Unknown" usually means that a node couldnt be identified at all and is just polled for availability via ICMP. Check for wrong credentials first.

    If you are just after the visual appearance in the list of nodes, you can fix the grouping easily if you change the way you sort it via "Edit" (quick&dirty), or implement a concept of custom properties which you can use for sorting and other things (smart&elegant).
