Cannot add a server

NOTE: If the add server action is not successful, a notification panel provides the reason why the action failed 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 server.

Server is already being managed by some other management software and is claimed by that software.

  1. Follow the instructions in the notification panel.

    Failures can occur if all information about a server cannot be acquired. When this happens, an explanation of the problem and the component that caused the problem is provided in a notification panel.

  2. To re-add a server, click the add reentry or click refresh link in the notification message panel (if there is one), or start the add action again from the add screen.
