Environment


Novell Storage Manager 3

Situation

When trying to configure an Agent as a Proxy Agent NSM shows no available Agent in the Proxy Agent Configuration.

Resolution

Add the following lines to file: %ProgramData%\Novell\Storage Manager\Engine\data\agents.dat

<Proxies>
 <Proxy>proxy_server_name</Proxy>
</Proxies>

Replace 'proxy_server_name' with actual server name.
