After you discover devices and add them to the Orion Platform for monitoring, you also need to add the devices to NCM.

The NCM Manage Nodes view shows the status of managed nodes and enables you to select added nodes to determine when and how the devices will be managed. You can modify the node properties, work with custom properties, and initiate polling and discovery actions.

If you remove a node from SolarWinds NCM, all data associated with the node, such as configs and inventory data, are also removed.

Open the Manage Nodes view

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Node & Group Management, click Manage Nodes.

To add or change columns displayed in the view, click the double-right angle icon at the far right of the table header and choose the data you want displayed.

Find a specific node

Enter an IP address or hostname in the Search field, and click Search.

Add or edit a node

  1. Use the Group By list to filter the nodes.
  2. Select one or more nodes you want to license in SolarWinds NCM, and click Edit Properties.
  3. Scroll down to the Manage Node(s) with NCM list, and select one of the following values:
    • Select Yes if you want to manage the node with NCM. The NCM Properties are listed with their current values.
    • Select No if you currently do not want the node managed with NCM. It can be added to NCM later through discovery.
    • Select Never if you never want the node managed by NCM. It will never be added to NCM through discovery.
  4. Adjust other values as needed, and then click Submit.
