Configuring Windows Virtual Machines to Support the eG Agent’s Inside View

To provide the inside view of a Unix VM, the eG agent uses secure shell (SSH). To obtain the inside view of a Windows VM, the eG VM monitor uses a lightweight monitoring component called the eG VM Agent, which is installed inside each of the VMs to obtain metrics regarding the health of the VMs. The eG VM Agent can be best described as a software that can be installed on the Windows virtual machines of a virtual infrastructure to allow a single eG agent to obtain an inside view of these VMs, without domain administrator privileges.
