Hi, we have a spreadsheet with about 800 cisco devices and a handful of these are missing out of Solarwinds monitoring. I wonder if I can create a list and have Sonar Discovery validate the existing versus the missing nodes? Then only import the missing ones. Or is there something I could other than maybe export the list of nodes from Solarwinds and do a side by side visual comparison?
Yes, you can. For the nodes that are already being monitored, it will discover all the interfaces and volumes and present the 'delta' as 'changes' vs new nodes
From the Manage Nodes, you can also choose the 'Export Custom Properties' option under 'More Actions' to export the list of nodes along with IPs, etc
