Re: adding client in DP Cell Manager

Good Day,,,
If you are installing DP agent on the server for the 1â st time, then you need to provide a user name & password for a user with admin right on the target server.

Re: adding client in DP Cell Manager

Step 1. modify hosts file on both client and Cell Manager(Input ip and hostname)

Step 2. add client with client hostname

Step 3. Select module do you want to install on client.

Step 4. input administrator id & password when popup windows

I think you can it simply. If you have same problem ping the client from Cell Manager

Hi pankaj gupta delhi,


normally I prefer to use DNS, with PTRs records, instead Host File.

What happen when you use the nslookup command, with fqdn, in both Cell Manager and client?

Have you disabled the personal firewall on Cell Manager?

The username and password asked can be a domain administrator that can manages the client.

Hi, I am facing the similar issue, I have added the port 5555 in the firewall and I have enabled ICMP Ping Responce rule enable as well. Both Servers can ping each other but I am keep on getting the same following error. bth clients are part of the domain entlab.local. Do we need to add some more ports?... Please suggest or help , error is below as appears after running the Add Client Wizard. Thank you.
