Not planning to do this module? You can skip to the next one. However, even if you plan to monitor only your vCenter Server, there are some important concepts covered in this module that are as applicable to your instances as they are to physical servers. Even if you do not perform the steps in this module, consider following along to learn more about agent- and WMI-based data collection.
- Click My Infrastructure, then click Auto Discovery in the left pane.
- In the Auto Discovery pop-up, confirm that the selection is Discover Servers and Network Devices on Your Network, and click Next.
- In the next step, select Servers with up.time Agent, and Servers with Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). In both cases, select the Use [...] Global Configuration option that you have defined in the last two exercises:
Enter the subnet or IP address range, similar to above.
Info title Pro Tip
Although we are keeping things simple, and using a single subnet or IP address range as shown above, there are other ways to point up.time at subnets and subnet ranges to expedite the Auto-Discovery process. See Using Auto Discovery for more information.
Click Next to start the Auto-Discovery process.
- When all servers on the subnet or IP address range have been detected you will be able to make selections to add to your up.time inventory. Select the Linux server that's using the up.time agent, and select any WMI-managed Windows server.
- Scroll to the bottom of the Auto Discovery list, and click Add. As a final step, you will receive confirmation that these are now part of your monitored inventory.
