Environment

Network Flow Analysis all versions

Cause

The Console cannot communicate with the old Harvester to delete or remains present under NetOps Portal / System Health

Resolution

We need to remove the harvester manually from the MySQL database.

RDP to the NFA Console.

Backup the NFA Databases as described here:

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/network-flow-analysis/23-3/managing/maintenance-and-data-collection/backing-up-and-restoring-data.html

 

Then, open a CMD prompt and type:

 

mysql reporter -unetqos -pnetqos

 

select harvesterid from harvesters where address='x.x.x.x'; (where x.x.x.x is the harvester IP you want to delete).

delete from harvesters where harvesterid=x; (where x is the returned value from the first query)

delete from routers where harvesterID = (select harvesterID from harvester_status where Address = 'x.x.x.x')

create table temprouters select id from routers;

delete from interfaces where routerid not in (select id from temprouters);

drop table temprouters;

delete from agent_definitions where interfaceid not in (select id from interfaces);

delete from agent_definitions_deleted where harvesteraddress='x.x.x.x';

delete from agents_all_view where harvesteraddress = (select Address from harvester_status where Address = 'x.x.x.x')

delete from cpuutilization where Address = (select Address from harvester_status where Address = 'x.x.x.x')

delete from harvester_status where Address = 'x.x.x.x'

 

Restart the CA NFA CA MYSQL Service.
