Moving Nodes to Correct Polling Engine & (Removing OLD Engine Entry with previous IP Address)

Why have 2 Primary Polling Engine Entery in Orion ?

This will be the case where you have incorrect Dual (OLD ) Primary Engine Entry

Which can be seen in Orion and Nodes assigned to Old Engine Entry in Database . (Engines Table )

This could be due to Multiple Reason :-

1. You have changed the Hostname of Orion Server .

2. Migrated Orion to another server with New Hostname or IP

3. Changed IP address of Orion

4. Fresh installed on a new Orion server using Old Database with new IP Address assigned to Orion server

You can see the Entry as following where all nodes still associated to OLD Engine
