Delete multiples clients from BMR clients list

Level 4

Hi all,

In Bare Metal Restore Management > Hosts > Bare Metal Restore Clients, I have a list of around 2000 clients. But in all of these machines, almost half must be removed. Is there a way to delete several clients in one operation? Which would go much faster than having to do it one by one ...

Thanks for your help.

If you have the list of clients to be deleted from BMR to hand in a text file named, perhaps "bmr-del.txt", then you could try this from the command line:

for /f %a in ('type bmr-del.txt') do (bmrs -operation delete -resource client -name %a)

...or if you want to execute the one-liner code from a script, then you will need two %% signs (don't ask me why), i.e. save this to bmr-del.bat :

for /f %%a in ('type bmr-del.txt') do (bmrs -operation delete -resource client -name %%a)

...and then execute it using :



Of course be super careful with the text file list of client names and so be super sure that you really do want to delete them all from BMR config.
