  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  3. Select the node or interface you want to poll or rediscover.
  4. To poll the selected node or interface, click More Actions > Poll Now.
  5. To rediscover the selected node, click More Actions > Rediscover.
