Failing scans Copied

If a scan fails the error will be recorded within the scan log, available via in the UI. The full error will also be recorded within /var/log/opsview/opsview.log on the collector performing the scan. You can see these errors by running:

grep automonitormanager /var/log/opsview/opsview.log

Host group ‘Automonitor’ could not be created: Parent does not exist Copied

This error is caused by the topmost Hostgroup having been renamed. The fix is to rename this top group back to the default of Opsview and retry the scan.
