Node or Interface names no longer updating when they are updated on the node itself.    


NPM 11.X        


When the name of an object is manually changed in Orion, the system sticks with that name because it believes that is what the user always wants it to be called no it will no longer be updated dynamically.


  1. Edit the node or interface in manage nodes.
  2. Blank out the name field and hit submit.
  3. In about a minute it will repopulate with the newest polled name from the device that we have stored in the database.


Alternatively, if you need to do this en masse you can run a query against either the Interfaces table or the Nodesdata table to blank out the caption field. It will take longer for the name to repopulate but it will eventually grab the new name we have for the device.
