Avoid orphaning agents and appliances

An orphaned agent or appliance is an asset that can no longer protect or be protected because critical configuration variables are missing. An orphaned agent or appliance often manifests after a user deletes a network, subnet, or deployment. This is also difficult to self-diagnose because these assets are not visible in the asset model due to this condition.
