2. Click Add Default Server.


4. Expand SolarWindsOrion instance, and then open [dbo].[VIM_Hosts] table.

5. Run the pre-defined query:
SELECT TOP 1000 * FROM [dbo].[VIM_Hosts]

6. Click Enable table Editing.

7. Highlight\select the row/s of the host you want to delete.

8. Right-click on the row and click Delete selected rows.


Once done, refresh your Virtualization summary page.
