I noticed that when I add an IP to Orion that already exists it overwrites the node with the default name and polling intervals but keeps the data previously collected on that node.
Is this normal and/or expected behavior?
If so, I would suggest that it may be a good idea to at least have a warning pop-up (or something along those lines) that warns a person that they are adding an IP/Node that laready exists in the system.
I agree. I have run into problems with the past where some of my coworkers will not check to see if a node was already added or if an existing box had that IP and over-wrote the existing info and replaced it with the new node. Doesn't come up often but would be good to display warning if node name and or IP is already in use by another system.
