We wish to modify certain properties of Devices configured in Zenoss. Easy and reliable way of doing would

be to use zendmd console with a small script.

Getting into zendmd console :

On Zenoss Master Server , run following command as zenoss user .

zenoss-master-server>zendmd

To find the device path , run following command

# Parameter can be Ip address or Device titile in Zenoss.
>>>d = find=("Parameter")
>>>d


Output of above command would look like below :

<Device at /zport/dmd/Devices/XYYZ/XXX/YYY/devices/device-id>
for dev in dmd.Devices.XYYZ.XXX.getSubDevices():
if dev.id =="current value or paramter used in previously"
dev.renameDevice("Desired-name")
