Managing and Unmanaging Components

Soon after component discovery, proceed to manage/unmanage the discovered components. Component management is a necessary step in monitoring because, administrators of IT infrastructures may not want to monitor all components that are discovered. For instance, an IT infrastructure may have a number of staging and testing components, in addition to their production components. An administrator may want to have only the production components monitored by eG Enterprise. To enable administrators monitor discovered servers selectively, eG Enterprise provides the components – manage / unmanage page. For managing discovered systems, administrators can use the systems – manage/unmanage page. The topics that follow discuss how these pages can be used for managing servers/systems.
