Remove a vEdge Router's Serial Number from the vManage NMS

When you return a vEdge router to Viptela via an RMA process, you want to delete the serial number of that router from the vManage NMS. You may also want to delete a serial number that has been erroneously entered into the vManage NMS.

When you delete a router's serial number, all information about that router, including its configuration, is removed from the vManage NMS. This means that if you are replacing a vEdge router, you should first copy the configuration from the RMA'd router to the new router and install the new router, before you remove the RMA'd router's serial number from the vManage NMS.

Before You Begin

If you are replacing an RMA'd router with a new router, ensure that you have copied the configuration from the failed to the new router.
