Add server failed

Symptom
Solution 1
Cause

A server previously associated with this profile is reinserted in a different place (different bay or enclosure). The edit link within the expanded message causes the new server location to be prepopulated in the edit profile dialog box.

Action
Same server, different bay: Manually move the server profile to a server in a different bay using the Edit server profile screen. If you come to this screen through the edit link in the error message, it is automatically populated for the server hardware value, with the appropriate change indications at the bottom of the dialog box and click OK. See About moving a server profile.
Solution 2
Cause

Different server, same bay

Action
Server profiles are associated by UUID to a specific server. If the wrong server is inserted in the bay, a message About migrating server profiles is displayed. The Server Hardware link points to the Server Hardware screen of the new server . Connections will still show a disabled status. The Server Hardware screen appears normal because it does not recognize it was ever associated with a server profile. See About editing a server profile
Solution 3
Cause

A server does not have a valid serial number and product ID.

Action
When replacing the system board, set the serial number and product ID using the UEFI System Utilities before inserting the server into the bay.
