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 

    Settings > Polling Engines.
