      In trying to add second dropzone/landing zone on the Drop Zone - mydropzone page. On the Server List tab after right clicking and selecting "add" The geometry pm the page did not change, and I saw no field to type in. I clicked "add" a second time and this time I saw a field to enter an IP address into. Which I did, and then repeated for a second drop zone.
      Saved and exit. Promoted the file to the environment.xml and when starting HPCC the system failed with an error of invalid XML.
      After investigation found that the file created a blank server entry and broke the XML.
      2 suggestions. Improve the UI on the Server LIst tab, and secondly, is there a way that the configmgr can validate the XML and not allow a broken XML file to get promoted to environment.xml and causing the system to fail to start.
