Is there a way that the bulk/group of devices can be completely unmanaged from DFM (LMS 3.1)for a temporary basis and they can be set to managed state whenever required.

What would be the easiest way to do that via GUI?

Config guide:


If you want to un manage entire devices and not part, you can suspend them in DFM.

Or another procedure / example:

1. From the Polling and Thresholds Console, in the Thresholds tab, select the port or

interface group you wish to unmanage.

2. Right-click Unmanage.

3. Select Reconfigure from the Group menu.

4. Select Save Inventory from the Inventory menu to update the DFM inventory.

If you have not downloaded and installed the latest patch/IDU, to disable analysis for

interfaces (or ports), assign the interfaces to a new group that has no settings:

1. From the Administration Console, select Edit > Polling and Thresholds.

2. In the Thresholds tab, expand the topology tree until you have expanded Interface


3. Select Interface Groups and right-click New Group.

4. Enter a new name for the group (for example, "Virtual Interfaces") and an optional

description. The new group is displayed under Interface Groups.

5. Select the new group and the Matching Criteria tab.

6. Set the matching criteria:

a. Select DeviceID and/or Description from the Disabled Criteria list.

b. Click Enable.

c. Double-click the Value column to change the value used in matching criteria (this

example is for virtual interfaces):

For DeviceID, use "*VL*"

For Description, use "*VLAN*"

d. Click Register and Apply.

7. Under the Priorities tab, select the new group you created.

8. Using the arrow button, move the new group to the top of the list (to make it highest


9. Click Apply.

10. Select the DFM domain and Group > Reconfigure.

11. From the Administration Console, select the DFM domain and

Inventory > Save Inventory.
