Please check the ALL server group under BL work space and see if they are
responding or not responding in that. There might be a case that server
would be enrolled and would be responding aswell due to some issues with
domain etc etc..
We will get a message that X number of servers are imported and Y number of servers failed.
Our question here is , can we import or get a log which servers failed into excel or any other format.
you do not import into a smart group - smart group members are determined on the fly by the conditions in the group.
so how are you importing:
- into a static group via the gui?
- into servers workspace via gui?
- via the commandline ?
We are importing in servers >workspace via GUI from excel.csv file.
In this case while importing there would be error messages or warning
messages Please check the console
Question here is where can we get the log of successfully imported targets and targets failed to import ?
Is there are possibiity to get a log ?
i don't think there is a log generated, only what you see in the gui. can you export or copy/paste from that ?
Looks like we dont have option to copy the servers
You can copy/paste server names from 'Copy to Clipboard' in Group explorer view for a static/smart group. You can sort it by 'date_created' to find those that were most recently imported and compare that to a list of the servers you intended to import.
We have found that if you use the .csv import from the GUI into static groups it will silently create new computer objects if they don't exist assuming the agent can be contacted (which is frequently the case when other support groups provides lists of servers that include e.g. cluster names instead of server names). I always use a simple CLI script to make sure that only existing servers are added to a static group if that is the intention (rather than intentionally trying to import new servers). I then pull the list from group explorer and compare it to the original list in Excel to find discrepancies.
Jim has given a much better explaination, even a lay man can understand
