4.2 Creating a Host Name for Each Agent (Optional)

The host name is created automatically when you register with framework manager. You can also create a host name for the agent using the following steps:

NOTE:Hosts can be organized and grouped into domains.

  1. Log in to the Framework Manager console.

  2. In the Navigation Pane, click Hosts.

    The Navigation Pane displays the current hierarchy for your Framework.

  3. (Conditional) If you want to add a subdomain, click Hosts in the Navigation Pane.

    1. Click Add Domain in the Task Pane.

    2. Specify a domain name.

    3. Click Finish.

  4. Select the required domain from the Navigation Pane.

  5. Click Add Hosts from the Task Pane.

  6. Specify the agent names for the hosts. You can type the names one at a time using one name per line, or paste a list of names. 

    When you add a host to the Framework, the name does not need to relate to the existing DNS name used to locate the host on your network.

  7. Click Next.

    A list of agent names is displayed.

  8. Click Finish.

    The status of the host is unregistered until the agent is installed and registered.

  9. Continue with Installing and Registering a Framework Agent.
