How do I unbind an external server from Security Center?

If an external server no longer requires protection, you can manually unbind this server from Security Center in the Security Center console. For more information, see Remove external servers.

After the server is unbound from Security Center, the server is no longer protected by Security Center. You cannot view data related to the server in the Security Center console, such as alerts, vulnerabilities, or attack information.
Note If you suspend or uninstall the Security Center agent instead of unbinding the server from Security Center, you can continue to view data related to the server in the Security Center console.

How do I unbind an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance from Security Center?

You cannot unbind an ECS instance from Security Center in the Security Center console. If you uninstall the Security Center agent from an ECS instance, the status of the ECS instance changes to disconnected in the asset list of the Security Center console. The ECS instance is not removed from the asset list. Only after you log on to the ECS console and release the ECS instance, it is unbound from Security Center and removed from the asset list.
