Additional Information

Workaround:

As a workaround the "context" device can be renamed as follows:

curl -kv -X PUT -H "Content-type: application/xml" -uadmin:[PASSWORD] -d'<Device version="1.0.0"><Item version="1.0.0"><Name>[NAME]@[context]</Name></Item></Device>' http://[DA]:8581/rest/devices/[ItemID from DA Device Admin Page]


Replace [PASSWORD] with the web admin user password
Replace [NAME} with the device name
Replace [context] with the SNMPv3 context name used.
Replace [DA] with the hostname or IP of the Data Aggregator
Replace [ItemID from DA Device Admin Page] with the Item ID of the device being renamed from the DA Device Admin page
Adjust the port and protocol in the URL as needed if the Data Aggregator is running https.

Example:

curl -kv -X PUT -H "Content-type: application/xml" -uadmin:password -d'<Device version="1.0.0"><Item version="1.0.0"><Name>[email protected]</Name></Item></Device>' http://dahostname:8581/rest/devices/9999999

Where 9999999 would be the DA Item ID of the device from the Data Aggregator Device Admin page.
