Error on unregister Monitored DB Instance Wizard

Updated: August 18, 2016

Overview

When unregistering a DPA instance from monitoring there is an error after screen 4 of 5 

Environment

  • DPA 10.2 and earlier

 

Cause 

There is an option on the next to last screen that allows the user to "Remove the DPA database Objects from the Database Instance".

 

If this is checked and DPA cannot connect to the instance to remove the objects,you will get an error and the unregister wizard will not continue. 

 

Resolution

Uncheck the box to Remove the DPA database Objects from the Database Instance", if it is known that DPA can't connect to the instance and DPA will unregister the monitored server. This will leave the tables or Objects on the monitored instance if it still exists.
