Manage Devices

You can deactivate a single device or all devices connected to a host. This action will stop all alarming and all data collection until you reactivate the device or host.

  1. In Sites Manager select the Hosts and Devices tab.
  2. On the Hosts and Devices tree, select the host or device you want to deactivate.
  3. Select Configure > Deactivate (or right-click and select Deactivate).
  4. A message appears, asking that you confirm deactivation of the host or device. Select Deactivate.
The host/device is no longer visible on the Hosts and Devices tree, but the network connection is still intact, allowing you to reactivate the host/device at a later time.
Deactivated devices are not included in the total number of licensed devices.
