If you no longer wish to monitor an instance, IDERA SQL Inventory Manager allows you to remove instances from monitoring and move them to the Ignored Tab.

You can access this option on the following views:

  • Home tab - The Remove option is located on the gear icon next to the instance you want to remove.
  • Instance details view - The Remove option is located on the gear icon next to the instance you want to remove.
  • Instances tab >  Managed by Instances view - The Remove option is located on the gear icon next to the instance you want to disable, or under the More Actions button   on the action items bar. Note that you must select at least one instance to have this option enabled.
  • Instances tab > SQL Licensing by Instances  view - The Remove option is located on the gear icon next to the instance you want to disable, or under More Actions button on the action items bar. Note that you must select at least one instance to have this option enabled.

When you remove an instance, IDERA SQL Inventory Manager no longer monitors that instance, deletes all associated data from the database, and adds the instance to the list of ignored instances. For more information about ignored instances Ignored instances.

Removed instances no longer count against your license count.
