    5. Setting up monitoring

    This operation should be executed after shifting into the Configuration mode.

    Select menu [Setting] > [Configuration Mode].

    5.1 Adding remote monitoring agent

    Open the monitoring view and add the remote monitoring agent to the Topology View tree.

    A new remote monitoring agent connected to the manager is automatically registered under the

    [Unregistered Host] group directly under the root node (Topology View node).

    Note that the remote host cannot be defined while the remote monitoring agent is registered in the

    [Unregistered Host] group. The remote monitoring agent must therefore be moved directly under the

    root node (topology view node) or to a defined host group. Once this is done, the remote host can be

    defined.

    5.2 Specifying the authentication information of

    vCenter/ESXi Server

    To monitor vCenter Server and ESXi Server, authentication information must be specified when

    adding a remote host.

    1 Right-click the remote monitoring agent in the topology view to open the pop-up menu and select

    [Remote setting].
