Deleting a Device

You can delete devices that no longer exist or need management from the Junos Scope software database.

Note: You cannot delete a device that is associated with an active operation schedule. To delete that device, you must click Manage Operations and delete the schedule associated with the device first, then delete the device using the following procedure.

When you delete a device, the corresponding label(s) with which the device is associated are also removed.

To delete a device, follow these steps:

  1. In the Junos Scope main window, click Settings > Devices. The Devices dialog box appears.
