After this error the blcli.log may have more detail about the error.
This could be the mac address is not in the expected format (capital letter and hyphen delimiter) or the noted device is not found/present.
Sorry, but I don't know how to find the blcli.log file. This NSH script is being run from a NSH script job from within BSA. Would the log be on the application server running the job or the target server or somewhere else?
I see this from another thread. . . "Look in the blcli.log file for your user - %APPDATA%\bladelogic\blcli.log or $HOME/.bladelogic/blcli.log" but I don't know what server to look at.
Any additional help would be appreciated.
If you try to manually delete the device, does that work? In general we have to delete any provisioning jobs associated with the device to be able to delete the device itself.
Also, deleting or resetting the provisioning device will silently decommission the server from Bladelogic ( which is really annoying when people re-use network devices to build multiple servers ). The server may need to be decommissioned prior to deleting the device.
Thx Jim. . . turns out I had to decommission the server first, then the delete command worked as expected. I was hung up on the idea, since in the BSA console when you delete a device manually you get prompted that the server will be decom'd, that it would just decom it automagically. . . well guess not. . .
