The Hosts panel toolbar has options for discovering, adding, editing, removing, and repurposing hosts.  

To access the Hosts view, in the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Hosts.  The Hosts panel toolbar is at the top of the Hosts grid in the Hosts view.

Displays the following options:
  • Remove Host: Removes a host that is no longer needed from the Security Analytics user interface along with its associated services. If you select this option, you can no longer view the host and its associated services from within Security Analytics.
  • Remove From Group: If the host is part of a host group, you can remove the host from the group.
  • Remove and Repurpose Host: This option is only available on the Primary Security Analytics server of the host. Use this option when you want to completely rebuild a host.
