We are running the latest version of Extreme Management 8.0.3 and they have remove the entire Inventory Manager utility.

We have a number of new switches where management is on the VR-MGT and Netsight is unable to archive these switches and im not able to see/find a way to change the VR Netsight uses to archive.


The description of the archive error: The device was unable to download the configuration. Check that the correct VR is being used.

Great, will give this a go :)

Also how you see which  devices archives failed as on the archive screen it just tells the number of failures and I cannot see how to see which devices actually failed:

Expand (EDGE CAMPUS) > Highlight the date and time and you should have Alert for the failed devices.
