We are seeing retired items in CA Performance Management that were not manually retired
Release : 3.7
Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration
As of 3.7.0, you have NFA integrated, you will see Retired devices in CAPM due to:
When the device is retired in NFA, it retires the device in CAPC.
Then CAPC automatically discovers the new devices via the following (Changes to Life Cycle Management):
NFA should create a new device and sync that up for the same IP, and we'll discover a new device in DA to go along with it.
The old NFA/DA device should be retired and reportable.
NFA would need to contribute to DA to automatically discover new DA items from NFA otherwise old DA/NFA is retired and we end up with NFA only device.
