Is there any way to outside the GUI to set all retired devices to active?
Here are the commands to set the devices to active. The first one gets all the Retired elements and puts them in a list. You will need to remove the fist line in the file /tmp/devices.txt it is a header.
1. mysql -unetqos -pnetqos netqosportal -e 'select itemid from t_device where LifeCycleState="Retired"';> /tmp/devices.txt
2. Edit /tmp/devices.txt to remove the first (header) line.
3. for ID in `cat /tmp/devices.txt`; do curl -v -X PUT -u admin:admin -H 'Content-type: acation/xml' http://<PC_SYSTEM>:8181/pc/center/webservice/devices/deviceItemId/$ID/lifeCycleState/Active; done
