To delete an appliance, click the menu icon beside the display name and then select Delete.

This function is disabled whenever the appliance tree is filtered by a specific Deep Discovery appliance. To enable the function, change the view to All.

Warning:
  • Deleting an appliance unregisters it from Deep Discovery Director (Consolidated Mode), stops all connections, and cancels all associated plans.

  • Deleting a Deep Discovery Inspector appliance causes that Deep Discovery Inspector appliance to automatically unregister from Deep Discovery Director - Network Analytics. Correlated events that were derived from data provided by that Deep Discovery Inspector appliance become unavailable.

    Re-registering that Deep Discovery Inspector appliance to Deep Discovery Director does not automatically re-register it to Deep Discovery Director - Network Analytics. To restore full functionality, go to the management console of the Deep Discovery Inspector appliance and re-register it to its originally registered Deep Discovery Director - Network Analytics server.
