I'm new to HP SIM ... when I try to add a server to the list (its a VMWARE ESX server) I get the subject line error and I cannot find it by name or IP on my all systems page. Any ideas?

you can use the CLI command mxnode -lt to generate a list of all nodes in the SIM database.

Same problem. Ran mxnode -lt and server was not listed in output. Anyone find out what causes this?

Hello.
I had that several times. Stopping and restarting the HP SIM service fixes the problem.
