The Deployment Status page lists servers to which data is being actively deployed, servers that are queued for deployment, and deployments that have occurred in the last 10 minutes. Scheduled deployments appear on the page automatically as they are triggered by their deployment schedule.

Note: View deployment status after manual deployment

After performing a manual deployment (including a forced full deployment), Address Manager immediately sends you to the Deployment Status page to track the progress of the deployment. This does not apply to Quick Deployment or Scheduled Deployment.

When a deployment is in progress, Address Manager queues any additional deployment requests. For example, if Address Manager is deploying to Server 1 and you manually deploy to Server 2, the deployment to Server 2 is queued until deployment to Server 1 is complete. Address Manager queues only a single deployment for each server.

On the Deployment Status page, you can cancel queued deployments and view deployment events that occurred in the last 10 minutes. Administrators can follow a link to the Events List page to view all deployment events.

Note: Improved DHCPv4 deployments

When viewing the status of a manual deployment, Address Manager administrators will notice that ‘Initializing’ time has been reduced significantly. In most cases, Initialization will pass so rapidly to the ‘Deploying’ state that the Initializing state may not be visible in the Deployment Status screen, even though it is still performed.

To view deployment status:

  1. Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on. Select the Administration tab again to ensure you are working with the Administration page.
  2. Under Tracking, click the Deployment Status link.
    • The Current Deployments section displays the following information:
      • ID—displays the ID number for the deployment. Address Manager counts the number of deployments and displays the deployment number here and in the Current Deployments section. The number of deployments starts again from 1 when you reboot Address Manager.
      • Server—displays the server or servers to which data is being deployed
      • Service(s)—displays the service or services being deployed. These can be DNS, DHCP, DHCPv6, and TFTP
      • Progress—displays the progress for the service or services being deployed. The service actively being deployed is indicated with bold text and a pointer icon. Deployed services and services that have not been successfully deployed appear in grey text with a status description in [square brackets].
      • Action—when servers are queued for deployment, displays a Cancel link. Click the Cancel link to cancel the queued deployment.
    • The Recent Deployments section displays the following information for deployments that occurred in the past 10 minutes:
      • ID—displays the number for the deployment. Address Manager counts the number of deployments and displays the deployment number here and in the Current Deployments section. The number of deployments starts again from 1 when you reboot Address Manager.
      • Server—displays the server or servers to which data is deployed
      • Service(s)—displays the service or services that have been deployed. These can be DNS, DHCP, DHCPv6, and TFTP
      • Result—displays each service deployed to the server and a status indication in [square brackets] for each service
      • Status—displays an icon indicating the overall status of the deployment event:
        • indicates that all services deployed successfully.
        • indicates that some services did not deploy successfully.
        • indicates that none of the services deployed successfully.
        • indicates that deployment was canceled.
        • indicates that deployment validation logged warnings for the deployment
      • Deployed Time—displays the completion time for the deployment.
    1. Under Recent Deployments, click Deployments that occurred more than 10 minutes ago if you want to view all deployment events. The Event List page opens and is automatically filtered to show Deployment Service events.
      Note: The Deployments that occurred more than 10 minutes ago link opens only for Administrator users. This link does not appear for Non-Administrator users.
