We have huge network devices. And all the devices are modelled in Spectrum.Currently we are going to change the system name at Mib level, So I want Spectrum is also able pickup the changes using the rediscovery. However we have observed that system name is changed in spectrum but the model name still old and we need to change the same manually one by one. Is there any process when we will do rediscovery of the device model name in spectrum it will be updated with the latest configured name
You can try having the SpectroSERVER re-evaluate all model names.
VNM ~~> SpectroSERVER Control
Note: Also keep in mind the 'Model Naming Order' criteria. By default SysName is first.
Thanks Greg. However how long it will take to re-evaluate the models assume we have 2000 models? Also can we do the same for 20 set of devices?
Is there any REST API for that?

There is an action code that can be used to trigger the reevaluation on a specific model.
Reevaluate Model Name Action Code: 0x0001011f
https://OneClickServer:port/spectrum/restful/action/0x0001011f?mh=<model_handle of device>
Thanks Greg. Much Appreciate your help!
Assume we have one container and we want to revalue of all the models under this container similar to container wise rediscovery. In that can we do that putting the model handle name of the container?
Unfortunately that action code will not work on a container model. The REST client will throw an error if you try
<action-response error-message="SPC-OCA-10446: The model does not support this action." error="Failure" />
Like other monitoring tools CA spectrum can’t do the model name update when it finds the system name changes of the model during polling?
Actually if I execute the revaluate models on landscapes then it may take more time and it will check all the models which are not updated though.
If something triggers a reconfiguration, Spectrum will re-evaluate the model name. Normal polling will not cause the model name to be re-evaluated.
