A named SQL instance is an SQL server given a name consisting of the network name of the server plus the instance name specified during installation. To monitor SQL named instances in SAM with AppInsight for SQL, you need the Virtual IP (VIP) of the SQL server and the full name.
Before adding the server as a node, verify the credentials and permissions are configured on the target SQL server.
You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.
To view monitored nodes, access the SQL Server page and specific SQL server details pages. See AppInsight for SQL for details.
This instance is grayed until the poller has polled this node. Once polled, the status color updates.
If you do not know the VIP, ping the server through the following instructions.
With the VIP, add the named SQL instance as a node for monitoring. These instructions manually add the node. You can also use the Discovery Wizard. For details, see Add AppInsight for SQL to a node.
