Unable to add a c7000 enclosure

Cause

Action
  1. If adding a c7000 enclosure is not successful, a notification panel provides the reason why and provides a solution to the problem. Often, the resolution is to click the add link embedded in the message; the add action rediscovers all components and updates its knowledge of the enclosure.
  2. Enclosure is already being managed by some other management software and is claimed by that software: If a first-time enclosure add does not succeed, verify that the enclosure prerequisites listed in add an enclosure to manage its contents are met. Verify that the data you entered on the screen is correct, and try the action again.

    If a first-time enclosure add does not succeed, verify that the enclosures prerequisites listed in the online help are met. Verify that the data you entered on the screen is correct, and try the action again.

  3. Follow the guidance in the notification panel for the corrective action you need to take to successfully add the enclosure.

    Failures can occur during the add action if all information about an enclosure, its servers, or interconnect modules cannot be acquired. When this happens, an explanation of the problem and the component that caused the problem (the enclosure, a server, an interconnect) is provided in a notification panel.

  4. To re-add an enclosure, click the add link in the notification message panel (if there is one), or start the add action again from the Add Enclosure screen, supplying the address and credentials for the enclosure's Onboard Administrator. To forcibly add the enclosure to the appliance, see Claim a c7000 enclosure currently being managed by another management system .
