(NNMi) Support Tip: Detect Interface Changes

Hello Forumites, 

Occasionally it is observed that some interfaces are deleted from the NNMi inventory and then re-created. This results to loss of any customized interface management that was configured for the old interface and also any custom attributes that may have been configured.

Re: (NNMi) Support Tip: Detect Interface Changes

For keeping temporarily removed interfaces (like card replacement) a bit longer (until e.g. the card is replugged), please have a look at https://softwaresupport.softwaregrp.com/doc/KM02660239 to see if this is helpful for your scenario, too.
