Excluding Devices from N-PE Role Assignment

The rules-driven process that the Connectivity Services Director application uses to discover device roles recommends the correct roles in most cases. To exclude a device from N-PE role assignment:

  1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
  2. Click the Build icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. From the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Prestage Devices > Prestage Devices.
  4. In the Devices Chart window, select the device on which you want to add an interface to the list of potential UNIs.
  5. Click Manage Device Roles and from the drop-down list, select Unassign Role to remove the role capability of a network element. You are prompted to confirm the operation. If you click OK, a request is submitted to remove the latest role of the network element or device.

    The device is removed from the list of network elements displayed on the Device Statistics page.
