IssueAfter re-install of the Enterprise Manager DLP NW appliances cannot rejoin Enterprise Manager.

When the DLP NW appliances are first added into the Enterprise Manager, a key is generated to enable secure communication between the appliances and the Enterprise Manager. Once the EM is re-installed the keys no longer match hence the devices can not communicate.




To resolve this issue the device can be reset rather than re-imaged. This has the advantage of retaining all network and other configuration data.

2, Select option 6 "Advanced"
