Is it possible to move assigned devices to another building/floor/site, or do they have to be deleted from inventory and rediscovered? When I try to assign a site to a device that is already assigned, the location is grayed out and cannot be modified.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should not have to completely remove the device from your inventory. Prior to attempting to move it from one site to another ensure that you have removed it from your original fabric. You should then be able to assign it elsewhere. HTH!
Can you tell me what is the impact when I delete a device from the Inventory? Device is not added to a fabric, it just got discovered and added to a site. Afterwards some config was pushed to it. I would like to understand what happens when I delete the device from inventory now. Does it just get deleted or does any config also being deleted again. I hope not the switch will be set to factory default or something.
When you delete a device from the inventory (that is not added to a fabric), DNAC will ask if you want to clean up the configuration which will remove any configuration that DNAC applied during and following initial discovery and provisioning such as device controllability settings and network settings (AAA, NTP etc). Any configuration that was present on the device prior to DNAC discovery will not be removed.
From my previous testing with configuration cleanup, DNAC doesn't remove any configuration that was applied using templates and it doesn't remove some settings such as the DNAC-CA trustpoint and IP Device Tracking that is pushed to the device during discovery (I have had to remove these manually). I'm not sure if this behaviour is the same in the latest release.
If you dont want DNAC to remove any configuration, simply leave the Configuration Clean-UP option unchecked and click OK.
I have the same issue but it seem the move option is selective to the switch or object. I am able to move with the same hardware but on another floor it does not allow me and is gray out. I do not want to remove the hardware from inventory but I do not understand what the fabric means. if you can explain that will help.
Note the hardware is Cat 9200-48 l for both devices.
If I discover a switch how does it get into the fabric, I have not done anything else with the switch other than discover it and place it on a site>building>floor. when you speak about a fabric what are you referring to so I can get a better understanding of the terms.
