When you add additional monitored nodes in your network, use the Scan for New Nodes feature in the Ops Center view to create new connectors for each new syslog source. Using this method, you can configure and enable multiple connectors simultaneously, minimizing network administration when new nodes are added in your network.

  1. Click the Ops Center view and locate the Node Health widget.
  2. Click Scan for New Nodes in the widget toolbar.


    LEM begins scanning for new nodes in your network. If new nodes are found, the New Connector(s) found banner displays in the console. Otherwise, the No nodes found banner displays.

    This process may require several minutes to complete. During the scan, a message displays indicating that the scan is continuing in the background. A progress bar also displays at the bottom of the console.

  3. Click View Now.


  4. Select the recommended connectors you want to install, and then Click Next.

    Hover your cursor over the connector name for details.


  5. Review the Summary information, and then click Finish.


    The Nodes grid displays with the new nodes. Click Monitor to view the events collected from the new nodes.

  6. Click Manage > Appliances.
  7. Click File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEM/LEMQuickStart/0G0/020/Button-Gear_15x12.png and select Connectors.
  8. In the Refine Results pane, enter a keyword for your new connector.


  9. Locate your connector in the list.


  10. Click File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEM/LEMQuickStart/0G0/020/Button-Gear_15x12.png next to the connector and select Edit.
  11. Edit your connector settings as required, and then click Save.

    The node connector is enabled.
