Description Heiko W. Rupp 2009-01-29 10:46:00 EST
Go to the inventory  page of a downed resource (e.g. a platform where the agent is down).
Try to e.g. manually a postgres server.
The add dialog works as normal, but after submitting an error is shown:

An unexpected error occurred in the Agent. Failed to add resource with type [Postgres Server] and parent resource id [500050]. - Cause: java.lang.NullPointerException:null

We should perhaps grey out / disable the "Manually add" section when the resource is down, as the manual will not work when the resource is not started. 

Side note: 
Agent shows:

2009-01-29 16:38:34,119 ERROR [WorkerThread#0[]] (rhq.core.pc.inv
entory.InventoryManager)- Manual add failed for resource of type 'Postgres Serve
r' and parent resource id [500050].
        at org.rhq.core.pc.inventory.InventoryManager.manuallyAddResource(InventoryManager.java:387)

Making a bunch of UI related bugs block the 'gwt' issue. Doesn't mean these have to be done, but they should at least be thought about.
Comment 3 John Mazzitelli 2011-02-11 16:56:37 EST
there are two items - in the left hand resource tree, right mouse button and the inventory tab>children there is an Import option. That's the option we should disable.
Comment 4 John Mazzitelli 2011-02-11 16:58:01 EST
this is also true for the Create child option as well (from the left hand tree popup menu). need to disable that too.
Comment 5 Jay Shaughnessy 2014-05-02 16:55:48 EDT
I believe this is still true. Not sure.
Comment 6 Jirka Kremser 2017-07-04 11:05:31 EDT
too old to fix
