    Unistalling second Polling Engine

      Hello all,

      Need a advice from you.

      I'm uninstalling a second Polling Engine (2nd server) but I'm afraid of doing any damage to the Database as both servers point to the same SQL.

      I can go ahead and uninstall this with no problem? No damage to the SQL?

          You can uninstall the 2nd polling engine without any consequences.  The polling engines are in a table in the database called 'Engines'.  The nodes are in a table called 'nodes'.  Each node has an assigned polling engine ID which is assigned in a column in the 'nodes' table of the Orion SQL database.  To make sure you have minimal disruption, stop the SolarWinds services on both machines > use the Monitor Polling Engines utility to associate the nodes that were on the 2nd polling engine to the primary polling engine > when you close the Monitor Polling Engines utility, confirm that you want to remove the 2nd polling engine now that it has no nodes associated > and start the Orion services back up on the primary polling engine. 

          This should get you back up and running again with the 2nd polling engine removed from the equation.
