If you checked the Connect Now
option when defining a new server, the PEM client will initiate a connection to the server when you click Save
. The new server will be added to the PEM client tree control, and be displayed on the Global Overview
When initially connecting to a newly bound server, the Global Overview
dashboard may display the new server with a status of “unknown” in the server list (as shown in Figure 4.10)
; before recognizing the server, the bound agent must execute a number of probes to examine the server, which may take a few minutes to complete depending on network availability.
If after five minutes, the Global Overview
dashboard still does not list the new server, you should review the logfiles for the monitoring agent, checking for errors. Right-click the agent's name in the tree control, and select the Probe Log Analysis
option from the Dashboards
sub-menu of the context menu.
