Hi, This works great, nice script, but it leaves the count in the device classes. I tried reindex, and reboot, but no better, counts are in the device class but no devices are there. How do I fix the device counts? My Zenoss 4.2.5 is patched to current and is on Centos 6.6. I'm adding devices through zenbatchload.

May I do this with a zenbatchload file ? for instance:

$ zenbatchdump > devicelist.txt
$ ./file-bulkdevicedeletion-py
