This guide explains how to determine, diagnose, and fix issues you might encounter when using NGINX Instance Manager.

This documentation applies to NGINX Instance Manager 2.0.0 and later.

Newly installed NGINX instances aren’t returned

Issue: After installing NGINX and the NGINX Agent on an instance, the instance is not returned when calling GET https://hostname/api/platform/v1/systems.

Solution: The NGINX service needs to be running before you start the NGINX Agent service.

To resolve the issue, try restarting the NGINX Agent service:

sudo systemctl restart nginx-agent
