    Netflow error:   NetFlow Receiver Service [NOC-EVAL] is receiving a NetFlow data stream from an unmanaged device (x.x.x.x).



      I recieve this message fairly often, and I'm not exactly sure why. Here's the entire message:

                                                         NetFlow Receiver Service [NOC-EVAL] is  receiving a NetFlow data stream from an unmanaged device  (x.x.x.x). The NetFlow data stream from x.x.x.x will be  discarded. Please use the Orion System Manager to add this IP Address in  order to process this NetFlow data stream or just use this link Manage  this device.

      This message appears whenever I either restart Orion OR update a netflow config for whatever reason on a router.This message only ever alerts on the IP of my WAN interfaces.

      Brief summary of Network setup:

      Using Cisco Flexible Netflow to export netflow across MPLS WAN. Internal Addressing is 192.168.x.x, WAN addressing is 66.x.x.x (supplied by provider). Routers are configured to source the netflow updates from their LAN interface (Fa0/0.1). All routers are in Orion, Orion has discovered and is monitoring all the interfaces, including the WAN interfaces.

      I manage each device in Orion by it's LAN IP address. Any thoughts as to why I get this error? Thanks in advance.
