Delete devices from Network Inventory

Delete devices from Network Inventory

You can delete devices from Network Inventory, which lists all known devices including devices detected during a network scan, devices that have booted in to the KBE, devices uploaded from an inventory file, and devices added using the MAC address.

Deleting devices from Network Inventory that have booted in to the KBE deletes the corresponding Device Inventory devices. If you delete the MAC address from the Network Inventory, the record is removed from the Device Inventory and any corresponding boot actions are also deleted.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Devices, then click Network Inventory to display the Network Scan Inventory page.
3.
Select Choose Action > Delete, then click Yes to confirm.

Unregister devices

Unregister devices

You can delete devices from Device Inventory to unregister devices and to free up a licensed seat.

Deleting devices from Device Inventory deletes the corresponding Network Inventory devices if the device in Network Inventory has booted in to the KBE. If you delete the MAC address from a Network Scan, the record is removed from the Device Inventory and any corresponding boot actions are also deleted.

When you reach the device limit associated with your license, a warning alert appears on the Home Dashboard. To purchase additional seats, visit https://support.quest.com/contact-us/licensing, and then go to the Registration and Licensing page to update your license key. For more information about the Dashboard, see Using the Dashboard.
