Due to certain properties assigned to devices based on the type, it is not possible to simply change the device type once assigned.
Quickest way will be to :
1. export the device records from actions menu by doing a "re-importable export for selected devices".
2. After you export the info, you can bulk delete devices from action menu.
3. Change the excel file to reflect blade devices and new hardware model(if applicable)
4. And then re-import it from Tools > Imports/Exports.
There's an easier way - if you're in the All Devices view, you can check the box(es) for the devices for which you wish to change the Type, and the Action menu will have an option: "Change Type for selected devices" - Run that and you can bulk change the type for as many devices as you wish.
Note: This option doesn't appear if you're in a specific device type view (like looking at Physical Devices for example). It's only valid in the All Devices view. However, you can use the search function to find the devices you need to modify.
