How to Remove Remote Sensors Properly

Version: 5.x
Deployment: All deployments

The logical way to remove the AlienVault USM Appliance Sensor is:

  • Go to Configuration > Deployment > Sensors.
  • Select the sensor.
  • Click Delete Selected.

You may get an error message similar to below:

Sorry, sensor not deleted. If you do that, One asset will be misconfigured: "sensor-name".

In this case you need to go to the asset list (Environment > Assets & Groups), edit the corresponding asset, and de-select the sensor from there. You should be able to remove the sensor afterwards.
