Issue/Introduction

MCS has been installed accidently to a set of systems.

Environment

Release : All
Component : mon_config_service

Resolution

The recommended method for removal, would be to remove the device from the group, allowing the plugin metric to be updated then remove or replace the probe to the non MC version.

The plugin_metric file can be fixed after the fact by running the plugin_metric_correction callback in the mon_config_service probe:

- in IM CTRL+P on the mon_config_service probe
- select the plugin plugin_metric_correction callback from the Probe commandset pulldown
- specify the need parameter and select the green triangle to execute the callback
