NCM 7.5 and later


There was a custom property called ‘Name’ on Orion.  This column was added to the Configuration Management grid and sorting was applied. NCM was still trying to sort based on this custom property even after it was removed.


Go to NCM > Configuration Management page and click on any other column in grid. This will reset sorting and should resolve issue.
