After the IP address of an Oracle VM Server was changed, it can't be added back to the pool. It fails with the following error:

OVMAPI_4010E Attempt to send command: discover_hardware to server: <hostname> failed. OVMAPI_4004E Sync command failed on server: <ip_address>. Command: discover_hardware, Server error: org.apache.xmlrpc.XmlRpcException: Failed to read server's response: No route to host (Host unreachable) [Wed Sep 11 15:16:08 AEST 2019]

An attempt to delete the server in the manager yields to the following error:

GEN_000002:No object of type Server with id null(<host_uuid>), is currently in the db.


IP address of the Oracle VM Server host was changed.
