Enabling a server returns a server disabled in the Address Manager user interface to operation.

Use the Enable function to restore a server only disabled in the Address Manager user interface to normal operation. Do not use the Enable if the server has been removed from Address Manager control. For such scenarios you must use the Replace function.

BlueCat recommends the Enable function for xHA customers that wish to convert the nodes in an xHA pair to standalone mode. In this scenario, you would break xHA, which will leave the former Active node connected to Address Manager, and the former Passive node will be disconnected. Use the Enable function to re-connect the server to Address Manager.

To enable a server:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click a server name. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server name menu and select Enable. The server is now enabled.
