The Host view toolbar contains the tools that you use to maintain the hosts in your Security Analytics deployment.

Select Administration > Hosts in the Security Analytics menu to access the Hosts view. The Hosts panel toolbar is at the top of the Hosts grid in the Hosts view.



The following table describes the features of the Hosts panel toolbar.


Open the Add Host dialog in which you add a host (see Step 1. Add or Update a Host). The features of this dialog are:

Name - The name that you give to the host.

Hostname - The hostname or IP address of the physical or virtual machine for the host.

Cancel - Closes the dialog without adding the host.

Save - Adds the host.

Display 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 Application host. Use this option when you want to completely rebuild a host.

Open the Edit Host dialog in which you edits a host or service identification and basic communication settings. This dialog has the same features as the Add Host dialog.
