Creating LEM Connector Profiles to Manage and Monitor LEM Agents

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 connector 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.

Create a connector profile using a LEM agent as a template

  1. Configure the connectors on the LEM agent that you will use in your new connector profile.

    These connectors are applied to any LEM agents that are later added to the connectors profile.

  2. Click Build > Groups.
  3. Click File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/0E0/0J0/Button-Add_13x11.png and select Connector Profile.
  4. Enter a connector name and description.
  5. Click the Template drop-down menu and select the LEM agent you want to use as your template.
  6. Click Save.

Add LEM agents to your new connector profile

When you create a connector profile, use the following guidelines:

  • An agent can only have one profile at a time.
  • Any profile change will be applied to all members of that profile.
  • Agents that are members of a profile cannot have single-use connectors applied to individual members.

To add LEM agents to your new connector profile:

  1. Locate the new Connector Profile in the Build > Groups view.
  2. Click File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/0E0/0J0/Button-Gear_17x14.png next to your Connector Profile and 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.
