Forgive me if this is not a bug..it may just be something I'm doing wrong.
I'm currently evaluating Hyperic. I had no problems with the install of the server (4.0.3) or agents. The server is running on a CentOS 5.2 box.
I've set up a couple of Cisco IOS platforms and a single Linux platform. However, when I attempt to set up a 2nd Linux platform (via Tools Menu..New Platform), the Platform Type pulldown menu only displays the following types:
You can't manually add platforms which needs agent to be installed. Just deploy agent to your new platform and let it to connect to hq server.
These platforms(your list) are external entities monitored by some selected agent. Like if you want to monitor your cisco router through snmp, you setup one agent to collect metrics. This is later calculated as one platform(licensing issue).
