Issue:

 

 

   

         
  •         Not able to discover NetWorker Server with locally installed agent.     
  •      
  •         Agent was not able to register with Server as agent password had not been set.     
  •      
  •         Agent password has been configured on the DPA Application Server.     
  •    
                                                             

 

 

Cause:

 

 

Agent could not register with the DPA Application Server as the Agent password not set which prevented collection of NetWorker server.                                                           

 

 

Change:

 

 

Installed DPA 6.5                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

The Agent password will need to be set on the Agent installed on the NetWorker server.  It can be set with the following command:   
   
    dpaagent --set-credentials -P {password}   
   
    Where {password} is the agent password set on the application server.  Note that the Agent will need to be restarted after setting the password.
