WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Create connector profiles to manage and monitor LEM Agents

Table of contents

Overview

Use Connector Profiles to manage and monitor similar LEM Agents across your network. The following two use cases are the most common for this type of component.

  • Configure and manage connectors at the profile level to reduce the amount of work you have to do for large LEM Agent deployments.
  • Create filters, rules, and searches using your Connector Profiles as Groups of LEM Agents. For example, create a filter to show you all Web traffic from computers in your Domain Controller Connector Profile.

Complete the two procedures below to create a Connector Profile using a single LEM Agent as its template.

Procedures

To create a Connector Profile using a LEM Agent as a template:

  1. Configure the connectors on the LEM Agent to be used as the template for your new Connector Profile. These connectors are to be applied to any LEM Agents that are later added to the Connectors Profile.
  2. Click the Build menu, and then select Groups.
  3. Click the + menu, and then select Connector Profile.
  4. Give your new Connector Profile a Name, and enter a Description if you wish.
  5. Select the LEM Agent you want to use as your template from the Template list next to the Description field.
  6. Click Save.

To add LEM Agents to your new Connector Profile:

  1. Locate the new Connector Profile in the Build > Groups view.
  2. Click the gear icon next to your Connector Profile, and then select Edit.
  3. Move LEM Agents from the Available Agents list to the Connector Profile by clicking the arrow next to them.
  4. If you are finished adding LEM Agents to your Connector Profile, click Save.

The connector configurations set for the template agent will be applied to any agent added to the Connector Profile.
