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=importit 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.
