I have an OS X server with version 10.3.8 of the Server OS. I have installed the agent and created an entry in the hosts file for my media server. Dunring the installation of the agent, the media server is detected. As far as I can tell, the installation of the remote agent is successful, but after a restart, I am not able to 'see' the server on my media server. Any idea what's going wrong?

I used the most current verion of the remote agent.
If I am reading the above correctly, the server version of the OS is supported...
