Orion IPAM polls devices for statistics and status regularly, according to the polling settings available for configuration on the Polling Settings view in the IPAM Web Console. For more information, see Orion Polling Settings. Sometimes, however, it may be necessary to conduct an unscheduled poll or rediscovery of a monitored device. The Node Management utility gives you this ability, as shown in the following procedure.

To perform an unscheduled poll or rediscovery:

1.Log in to the IPAM Web Console as an administrator.

2.Click Settings in the top right of the web console.

3.Click Manage Nodes in the Node & Group Management grouping of the Orion Website Administration page.

4.Locate and check the node or interface you want to poll or locate and check the node to rediscover, using either of the following methods:

  • Use the search tool above the node list to search your Orion database.
  • Select an appropriate Group by criteria, and then click the appropriate group including either the node or interface you want to poll or the node you want to rediscover.

5. If you want to poll the selected node or interface, click More Actions > Poll Now.

6. If you want to rediscover the selected node, click More Actions > Rediscover.
