Are you referring to volumes or the hardware health sensors? For volumes, you can delete them from the database. You would want to delete the volumes in question directly from the volumes table. I just ran into this issue with one of my clients. The drives were renamed and then orphaned by SolarWinds. You could not see them in list resources or by expanding out the node in Manage Nodes. Deleting them from the database resolved the issue. I wound up creating a report to show all of the orphaned volumes, so that we can keep an eye on it in future, and then deleted them from the database based on the volume IDs which are unique to each one. If it is hardware health sensors though, I am not sure what all would be affected by deleting them from the database. In that case, you may have to just list resources and deselect it. Run a new poll, list resources again and add it back.
Hope this helps.
I actually had both issues, but the volume was easily unchecked and repolled - all was good. I cant uncheck an individual hardware healthcheck. I did deslect hardware health and rediscovered, repolled and once I reselect hardware health under the list resources, it brings back those orphaned elements since they were never really deleted.
I can see these sub-elements individually in Network Atlas, but not really anywhere else...
thanks for the info - hopefully someone has a bit more info on the Hardware Health Monitors?
You took the appropriate action by removing and re-adding HW health on the node. The orphaned HW elements should not have returned on rediscover. It sounds like we need to have our support team dig into this.
