The node admin tool in NMIS9 brings some enhancements.

  • The node_admin tool now supports more complete snapshotting of nodes (with act=dump), which optionally includes the node's RRD files, events and other historic records.
    When importing a thusly dumped node with act=import it is now possible to have all identifiers localised to the current system (with localise_ids=true ); this causes the imported node to be  'adopted' by and become active on the current NMIS system immediately. 
    This mechanism allows a node to be moved completely between NMIS systems, without losing any of the node's history.
