This article outlines information on how to manually undiscover a server in cases where: 

  • The PowerP2V Server may no longer be able to connect or access a previously discovered source/target server.
  • The previously discovered source/target server no longer exists
  • Problems with the original credentials that were used to discover the source/target server

Applies to:  PowerP2V V4.0 and higher


Note:  The following steps should only be performed by the PowerP2V System Administrator.  Also, creating a backup of the PowerP2V Database is strongly recommended before proceeding with the instructions below.  Please contact PlateSpin support if you have any questions before proceeding.

To manually undiscover the source/target server, please use the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the C:\Program Files\PlateSpin PowerP2V Server\bin directory
  2. Launch the PowerP2VBrowser utility by double clicking on PowerP2VBrowser.exe
  3. Click on the "Go" button
  4. Expand the Networks branch
  5. Expand the Default branch and also the Machines branch underneath it
  6. You should now see the list of machines that were previously discovered
  7. Right click on the machine that you wish to undiscover and click on "Delete"
  8. Close the PowerP2VBrowser
  9. Re-launch the PowerP2V Client.  The deleted machine should now be undiscovered from the PowerP2V Server.
