Solution

Solution 1:

Locate the unused member cluster member(s) and delete it (them):

  1. Open SmartConsole and connect to your Security Management server.

  2. Open the Network Objects view.

  3. Mark the unused member cluster member and click 'Remove'.

    Note: The delete of cluster member might fail because it is in use. Use the "Where Used" action to find the reference(s) to the member: click 'Actions...'->'Where Used...'

Note: The cluster member removal will fail if any references will be found. In this case remove the references manually.

 

Solution 2:

Delete these cluster members objects using GuiDBEdit tool:

Important:  The delete of cluster member might fail because it is in use. Make sure there are no references to the cluster member before deleting it.

  1. Close all SmartConsole windows.

  2. Connect to Security Management Server / Domain Management Server with GuiDBedit Tool.

  3. In the left upper pane, select Table tab

  4. Under 'Network Objects' select network_objects table.

  5. Right-click the targeted object and select delete


Example: 

Note: The cluster member removal will fail if any references will be found. In this case remove the references manually.

 

Solution 3:

Cluster members objects can be deleted automatically using a Unused Cluster Member Removal Tool.

Important: This script will modify your database, therefore it is highly recommended to backup it. Make sure you are not connected to the Security Management server while performing the steps below.

 

  1. Download the Unused Cluster Member Removal script and copy it to your Security Management server.

  2. Enter the Expert mode.

  3. Run 'chmod +x ./remove_unused_cluster_members_sk108612.sh' command on your Security Management server.

  4. Run the script: './remove_unused_cluster_members_sk108612.sh'

  5. Wait it to find all the unused cluster members in your Security Management server.

  6. Press Y when the result is shown and wait for the script to end.

Example:

Note: The cluster member removal will fail if any references will be found. In this case remove the references manually.
