Deleting a Subnet or Site

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 (On-Premises)
You can delete a manually-managed site or subnet from FlexNet Manager Suite if it no longer exists in your network. Manually-managed site and subnet records display No in the Update automatically column. If you delete a site, all its subnets are deleted automatically.
Tip: If you delete a site (or subnet) that still exists in your network, and this site shows Yes in the Update automatically column, the record will be restored on the next import from Active Directory. Conversely, if the record shows Yes in the Update automatically column and the site or subnet is removed from Active Directory, you do not need to delete the record manually, as it will be cleaned up automatically in the next import from Active Directory.

To delete a subnet or site:

  1. Navigate to Discovery & Inventory > Subnets.
    FlexNet Manager Suite displays the Subnets page.
  2. If you wish to delete a subnet record, first click the + expander (to the left of the name) to expand the site that contains your target subnet.
    Alternatively, if you know (part of) the subnet address, you can use the Search field (top right above the list) to switch to a flat list of matching subnets, so that the one you are seeking is quickly visible.
  3. In the Actions column against the site or subnet record, click the delete (trashcan) icon to delete the site or subnet.
    A confirmation dialog appears. Click OK to confirm your intention.
Note: Deleting a subnet record on this page (either directly or by deleting its parent site) does not change the specification of any inventory rules that currently reference that subnet. (You may wish to revise your rule definitions to avoid future confusion.) Rules as defined are still passed to all inventory beacons for evaluation. However, the inventory beacons are informed that the subnet record is now deleted. Therefore, when the inventory beacon previously responsible for the subnet evaluates a rule specifying the deleted subnet, it does not attempt to apply the rule, and instead returns an "out of scope" result (this result is visible in the Discovery and Inventory Rules page when you expand the relevant rule to show results).
