unknown collector

Jump to solution

I have a Skyline Collector showing 'Unknown'. I know this no longer exists and I also see that 'You can only deregister a collector which is in the inactive state'.

How do I go about removing the unknown collector from my Skyline config?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I have already tried to do this, the collector is unknown and greyed out. The deregister option is not available

when I mouse over the info symbol I get the following pop up

The collector appliance VM no longer exists, it was deleted before we knew about it and were not able to deregister before the fact.

Thanks

Hi

Our account ID is e1155936-c03e-4857-bd18-edc6b43d9c6a

It's not obvious how I find the collector ID in Skyline, we have 10 registered, 9 of which are named and healthy, the unknown one displays no name.

The collector name was skyln-test-1 if that helps

Cheers
