    Status of Devices after export

    Select the device status in MSP Manager after data has been exported:

    • Active
    • Inactive

    These are the default status values. If you have configured any custom devices, they will also be listed here.

    When a device is deleted or is no longer managed by SolarWinds N-central

    Select how MSP Manager will manage Configurations for devices that no longer exist or are no longer managed in SolarWinds N-central from one of the following:

    • Delete the Device in MSP Manager—This option is not recommended unless you have a good reason to do so. Deleting the device here will cause ticket history for this device to be lost, so you may want to select the second option and choose a status
    • Set status of the Device in MSP Manager to either Active or Inactive
    • Do Nothing—If you choose to Do Nothing, you will have to remember to reconcile your device information in MSP Manager with that in SolarWinds N-central.
