We have several devices that we have acknowledged. We have also been putting these devices in an unreachable state (because they are not physically deployed).
However, when the parent of these soon to be devices gets power cycled, all the devices state change to down and we lose the acknowledgement.
What would be a good way to show these devices as undeployed, but not get acknowledgements?
The idea is to have nagios actively get these devices as soon as they are deployed....we don't have control over when they will get deployed..we just know they will sometime in the future.
