If you run the Check Client for Policy Readiness with no errors and the console indicates that the host is "Ready to join" a policy group, yet the Join to Policy Group option is not available, this topic will help you troubleshoot the issue.
To join a host to a policy group, the host must meet all of the following conditions:
Once you meet these conditions, you can run the Join to Policy Group option from the Prepare panel of the All Hosts view. See Joining the host to a policy group for details.
If you have the qpm-server installed and you run Check Client for Policy Readiness from the mangement console and it tells you the policy server port is unavailable, check the port to see if another program is using that port.
The Policy Change Report reports newlines as a change in policy. All policy files have newlines at the end by default. If you open a policy in the GUI editor without newlines, it adds a newline to the end of each policy file. The Policy Change Report then reports this action as a change to the policy.
If the host remains in a profiling state, it is likely that SSH is improperly configured on that host. Verify that you can SSH to the host manually.
If the host does not reset its profiled state to either Profiled or Not Profiled within a reasonable time, restart the Management Console for Unix service (mcu_service) to reset its profile state. See the Start/stop/restart Management Console for Unix service for details.
