Situation:
I noticed after I installed the NSM Agent (novell-storagemanager-agent-2.5.2-198.i586.rpm) to an SLES10 SP3 // OES 2 SP2 server that it was not "authorized" to communicate with the engine. I checked the log in /var/opt/novell/storagemanager/agent/log/agent.log and found the "Engine has not authorized the Agent" message.

When I went to authorize it in NSM Admin 2.5.2, I could not see the "new" server or it's partition in the tree until the next day. Now that a day has passed, I authorized the OES Linux server in NSM Admin and after restarting the Agent on my OES Linux server, it has registered and functions normally.

Question:
Is there any way to avoid waiting until the next day to see new partitions and servers in order to authorize them?

I know this is probably a silly question and it's something I'm missing, but, I can't quite seem to figure it out. :)


Thanks,
