Administering the eG Manager to monitor a Cisco Nexus Switch

To administer the eG Manager to monitor the Cisco Nexus Switch, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Cisco Nexus Switch. You need to manually add the server using the COMPONENTS page (see Figure 1) that appears when the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence is followed. Remember that components manually added are managed automatically.
