Good question, I am wondering the same thing. For those that know, is it possible to have these devices listed on a page and/or have an email sent out to folks letting them know that xyz has been unmanaged?
I figured out the alert condition to send an email. Is there a way to create a report with this so I can have it show up on the page with possibly a reason why it is unmanaged? That would be top notch.
When you look at an unmanaged device, the icon for that device is no longer a green dot. It's a blue dot with a white x through it. It should appear that way everywhere in the UI.
HI Denny LeCompte
Yes, You are correct. But this blue dot with a white x appears only during the period of unmanage of the devices. But let say i am unmanageing a future event how do i know whether that device is already unmanaged for that period or not. In addition, I have unmanaged a device for a future maintenance activity, But the activity is canceled, then how do i remanage the switch with out waiting till the unmanaged time ( when i can see device with blue dot saying unmanaged) ?.
how do i know whether that device is already unmanaged for that period or not
There's no way of viewing this unless you write a custom report to show you things that are scheduled to be unmanaged. That's a SQL query of the nodes table.
Here is one solution (custom SQL report SQL)
declare @offset int
SET @offset = DateDiff(hour, GetUTCDate(), GetDate())
when UnManaged = 0 then 'no'
when UnManaged = 1 then 'yes'
as MMode, dateadd(HOUR, @offset, UnManageFrom) as UnManageFrom, dateadd(HOUR, @offset, UnManageUntil) as UnManageUntil, nodeID as NodeID from nodes
where Contact like 'Linux%' and UnManageFrom not like '%1899%' and dateadd(HOUR, @offset, UnManageUntil) > CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
This returns the following in SQL Studios:
Caption MMode UnManageFrom UnManageUntil NodeID
Server_Name_1 yes 2016-02-29 19:15:00.000 2016-05-31 18:15:00.000 1
A_different _Server_Name yes 2016-02-29 19:17:00.000 2016-05-31 18:17:00.000 2
It yields a report like this:
