Change polling engine node assignments in the SolarWinds Platform
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.
- Moving or renaming your SolarWinds Platform server
- Deleting an existing polling engine
- Merging two or more SolarWinds Platform servers
- Deploying Additional Polling Engines to distribute the load
To change the polling engine that polls a node:
Log in to the SolarWinds Platform Web Console as an administrator.
Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
Select the node(s) for which you want to change the polling engine.
Click More Actions, and click Change Polling Engine.
If you don't have additional polling engines deployed, the Change Polling Engine item is not available.
After you select the Change Polling Engine item, the current number of Assigned Objects is listed for each available polling engine. This number is updated with each automatic polling engine synchronization. Updates to the Assigned Objects count can only be completed for polling engines that are operationally up.
Select the polling engine, and click Change Polling Engine.
Your SolarWinds Platform product polls the node using the selected polling engine.
