Administering the eG Manager to Monitor Citrix XenServer - VDI

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Citrix XenServer - VDI. You need to manually add the Citrix XenServer - VDI 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.

Finally, click the Add button in Figure 1 to manage the component.
