The device type defines the way the device is represented on the webpage of DCO.
We have computers and network equipment.
Computers are showen with a front cover. Network equipment are showen as two rows of RJ45 ports.
Some equipment (for example Nutanix) have a front cover like a computer, but are classified as network equipment.
How to change this for a device in the genomes?
I hope I don't have to create new devices?

If these assets are actually servers, then you should copy an existing server asset to make a proper Nutanix genome in your library.
You cannot change the asset type directly in an asset as the genome type carries specific library properties (i.e. floor based power distribution assets have breaker panels, blade chassis enclosures can hold blades, ... and so on).
Please let us know If the existing Nutanix genomes are incorrectly classified in the genome library as in that case we can open a ticket to have those entries corrected in a future catalog update.
