Excluding Devices from N-PE Role Assignment


The rules-driven process that the Network Activate software uses to discover device roles recommends the correct roles in most cases. To exclude a device from N-PE role assignment:

  1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Prestage Devices > Manage Device Roles > Assign Roles.

    The results of the most recent role discovery operation appear.

  2. On the Assign Roles page, select the N-PE device that you want to exclude from role assignment. To exclude several N-PE devices, use the multiple selection capability.
  3. Open the Actions menu and select Exclude from NPE Role.

    The Assign Roles page refreshes. The excluded devices are no longer visible.
