Administering the eG Manager to monitor Citrix XenServer

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

  3. To monitor a Citrix XenServer, select Xen as the OS and set the Mode to SSH. Then, pick a Remote agent from Figure 1 to perform the agentless monitoring, and also assign an External agent to the server to verify its external availability and network health. Finally, click the Add button in Figure 1 to manage the component.
  4. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests appears (see Figure 2).
