About releasing the Agent Manager lockbox

An Agent Manager lockbox needs to be released the first time an agent is deployed to the Agent Manager host. This releases the lockbox to the client Agent Manager Host, making all the credentials in the lockbox available to the agents on that host. You can release the lockbox from the Storage Device Setup wizard, the Edit Agent Properties dialog box, or from the Credentials dashboard.

Resolving Connection Attempt Errors

If the agent’s attempt to connect and validate fails, the error message usually contains a suggested resolution. For example, you may need to fix credentials or release the lockbox.

If the connection is refused because the entered IP address is incorrect, you need to cancel the wizard, delete the agent, and restart the wizard using the correct IP address. If the port is wrong, you can click the value beside the Port field to correct the value.

If the problem cannot be resolved at this time, close the Storage Device Setup dialog. The configuration that has been done up to the point where the error occurred is saved. After resolving the problem, edit the agent configuration and validate the settings. For more information, see Editing Configured Agents.
