If you are using a Deployment Server, you may have to update the whitelist (or possibly blacklist) entries in any serverclass entries of which the host is a member. It is possible that it might be referenced directly in a search or lookup file.

If you are using the machine as forwarder than you need to update the whitelist in serverclass.conf.

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?
