Can I edit the Nodes.nmis to remove nodes.
I have NMIS system, some of the nodes were deleted but these nodes are still present in the Nodes,nmis file.
If I try to perform the delete via cli, NMIS states nodes do not exist.
Can I edit Nodes.nmis file or mv an edited Nodes.nmis file to the current Nodes.nmis file?
Is there a speific process to follow?
There are at least three methods to delete nodes in NMIS.
Hi, Thank you for reply. I have tried both via GUI but nodes are not listed and when using node_admin.pl to delete, the site does not exist, node_admin.pl act=delete deletedata=1 confirm=YES node=sitex Node sitex does not exist. As a last resort I'm considering editing the Nodes.nmis to remove the nodes.
Yeah mate I edit it all the time, the system just reads the conf file no dramas.
If you care about historical data it's a different story
That conf file is one of the only things you need if you want to monitor your existing nodes on a brand new system. Great design IMO
Also, what syntax are you using for the command line?
This is how I delete:
Hi, Thank you for reply, I've used ./node_admin.pl act=delete node=ripnode confirm=YES deletedata=1 syntax and as per above, Node "sitex" does not exist is the message received. Can I edit the Nodes.nmis and will changes take affect without restarting NMIS?
