IssueAfter removing a Host from the Host page in the UI it won't discover again.
ResolutionOn your Component Host (Packet Decoder, Concentrator, Malware Analysis, etc.), run the following command from an SSH window to retrieve the host_id.

# cat /etc/salt/minion



Sample output...
# cat /etc/salt/minion
master: 192.168.2.101
hash_type: sha256
log_level: info
id: 44f0b8ad-55cb-440f-8e42-95caa049b4a1




On the NW Admin Server, verify that the component host_id is in the list.
Run the following command from an SSH window on the NW Admin Server

# orchestration-cli-client -k



[root@nwadmin1 ~]# orchestration-cli-client -k

On the NW Admin Server, delete the host_id for the client host node.


# orchestration-cli-client --remove-key 44f0b8ad-55cb-440f-8e42-95caa049b4a1


On the client Host appliance re-run the nwsetup-tui command...


# nwsetup-tui

... answer the questions
... once nwsetup-tui finishes go to the UI and discover the Host again
... once host is discovered click the "Install" button to select the node type (i.e. Packet Decoder, LogDecoder etc...)
