I am going to be performing a series of negative testing on some controllers and I want to have DFM NOT alert on them or possibly event not EVENT on them; is there a method I can place the controllers in a quarantine zone? Or use some commandline option to have them not be monitored during my test period?
If I delete the object and readd it, will i retain my history, performance history, and any relationships managed my Protection Manager?
This will apply to both DFM 4 and DFM 5.

Okay ... the command set in 4.0 ( later in 5.0 ) is dfm host add and dfm host delete; is the "undelete" sequence simply just a dfm host add again or is there a special switch you need to use?

Data collection and reporting on an object resumes when you re-add (undelete) the object to the DataFabric Manager server database.
To re-add an object to the databas:
1. Run the "Controllers, Deleted" report against the Global group to locate a deleted controller.
2. Select the checkbox for the object you want to re-add.
3. Click Undelete. DataFabric Manager server resumes monitoring the object and re-adds it to the database.
It should keep the same DFM object IDs that it had before, as DFM never really deleted it from the database.
