objective of this document is to show you how to remove devices from the embedded Probe on SG350 and SG550 Series Switches.
Network Management application automatically discovers a network, and enables
the network administrator to configure and monitor all supported Cisco devices
– such as Cisco switches, routers, and wireless access points. It also notifies
the administrator of any available firmware updates or any devices that are no
longer under warranty or covered by a support contract. FindIT Network Manager
is a distributed application which is comprised of two separate components or
A single instance FindIT Network Manager is installed at a
convenient location in the network. Each Probe is associated with a Manager.
FindIT Network Probe - An instance of FindIT Network Probe
is installed at each site in the network. The probe performs network discovery
and communicates directly with each Cisco device.
Manager interface, you can get a high-level view of the status of all the sites
in your network, and connect to the Probe installed at a particular site when
you wish to view detailed information for that site. The Probe also allows
Manager functionality for devices connected to the local network.
configuration changes occur in your network, you may need to remove a device or
no longer wish to see it in your FindIT topology. Perhaps you moved that device
to a different network or purchased new piece of equipment to replace an older
one. This article describes the simple process of removing a device. Keep in
mind, you can only remove offline devices; if the device is added back, it
would be discovered again.

the Embedded FindIT Probe on the SG350 and SG550 Series Switches.
Removing Devices from Embedded Probe
Step 1. Log
in to the web configuration page of your switch.
Note: We will be using the SG550X-24
Click the FindIT icon on
the top right hand corner of the Graphical User Interface (GUI) to access the
FindIT Network Probe.
(Optional) Another way of accessing the FindIT Network Probe is entering the
switch IP address in the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) with https:// before the switch IP address
and :4443 after the
switch IP address. For this demonstration, we entered in https://192.168.1.113:4443. Then
press Enter on your
keyboard. It should redirect you to the FindIT Network Probe page.
Note: You must be logged into the switch
in order for this to work, otherwise it will bring you to the login page to
have you log in. If you get a certificate error, proceed on to the webpage.
Select the device that you want to remove. In this example, we will be selecting
the SG550X-24 that is colored red in the FindIT Probe topology.
Note: Make sure the device is shown as
offline on the embedded FindIT Probe or you will not be able to remove it from
Step 5. On
the right-side menu, click the Actions tab
and then press Delete.
now have successfully removed a device from the embedded Probe on your SG350 or
SG550 Series Switch.
