Hosts are the computers that run the various server applications in the environment.
Register only those hosts on which you will install and run Genesys servers or third-party servers that you configure in the Configuration Database.
The Hosts list shows the hosts that are in your environment. It is sorted in a hierarchy by Tenants, configuration units, sites, and folders. To view objects by a particular hierarchy, select the hierarchy type in the drop-down menu above the list.
Configuration Manager respects tenancy permission settings. You can access only those objects that you have been granted permissions and privileges to access.
You can filter the contents of this list in two ways:
- Type the name or partial name of an object in the Quick Filter field.
- Click the cube icon to open the Tenant Directory filter panel. In this panel, click the Tenant that you want to select. Use the Quick Filter field in this panel to filter the Tenant list.
You can sort the items in the list by clicking a column head. Clicking a column head a second time reverses the sort order. You can add or remove columns by clicking Select Columns.
To select or de-select multiple objects at once, click Select.
To create a new Host object, click New. To view or edit details of an existing object, click the name of the object, or click the check box beside an object and click Edit. To delete one or more objects, click the check-box beside the object(s) in the list and click Delete. You can also delete individual objects by clicking on the object and then clicking Delete.
Otherwise, click More to perform the following tasks:
- Clone—Copy a Host.
- Move To—Move a Host to another hierarchical structure.
- Enable or disable Hosts.
- Create a folder, configuration unit, or site. See Object Hierarchy for more information.

To configure the Advanced Disconnect Detection Protocol (ADDP) protocol between the LCA of a given host and SCS, use the Options tab of the Host object. If you are using the Management Layer for application failure management, set up ADDP parameters for the host as described.
Setting up ADDP Connections
- Open the Options tab of the Host.
- Create a section called addp.
- In the addp section, specify the following configuration options:
|Option Name||Option Value||Option Description|
|addp-timeout||Any integer|| Sets the ADDP timeout in seconds. If one application in the connection does not receive messages from the other application
in the connection within this interval, the first application sends a polling message. If the first application does not receive a response to the polling message within this time interval, it interprets the lack of response as a loss of connection. The recommended setting for this option is 3 seconds for a LAN connection or 10 seconds for a WAN connection.
|addp-trace||local||LCA prints ADDP-related messages into its log.|
You can click the name of a Host to view more information about the host's configuration, as well as check port information and identify port conflicts. Click Check Ports to display all applications and configured ports for the Host object, as well any port conflicts. Ports that are duplicated in multiple applications are highlighted in the list, as these ports might be in conflict. You can click an Application in the Check Ports list to view details about the Application object. Click Export to export the items in the list to a Microsoft Excel-compatible file.
