[frs-98] I did a manual Install of FusionReactor and cannot see the current instance in the Enterprise Dashboard afterwards

If you do a manual installation it is normal that the current instance is not listed in the Enterprise Dashboard.

To add any FusionReactor instance (remote or local) you can use the Manage Servers page in the Enterprise menu:

1) Give the instance that you want to add a name
2) Enter the URL to the instance, e.g. http://<your hostname>:8088/fusionreactor
3) Enter the password
4) Check the status is set to 'Online'
5) Click 'Add Server' to add the new FusionReactor instance to the Enterprise Dashboard.

To install a new local FusionReactor instance from the Administrator you can use the Instance Manager. On manual installations of FusionReactor you have to scan for any appropriate target servers first (this is done by the automated setup for you). Either manually add the server by choosing the type and the directory in which the server is installed (e.g. /C:/ColdFusionMX7, /opt/jrun4) and click on the 'Add Server ' button afterwards or let FusionReactor scan you system for you. Therefore you have to specify the directory from which the search should start and the number of sub directories the search should follow.

Once you see a list of target servers you can click on the green button to install a new instance of FusionReactor on the server. Give the new instance a name, a port for the internal web server and a password, then click 'Install Instance' to install it.
Note: if you use the same name and port as you have used in the manual installation (typically default and 8088) you can update your current instance. You can then click on the blue button to add the instance to the Enterprise Dashboard. Afterwards all buttons of this instance will be disabled (because it is the instance you are running on and you should not be able to delete it). Open the Enterprise Dashboard and you should see your instance.
