Once the pre-requisites listed in Pre-requisites for Using the eG Enterprise Logon Simulator for Exchange are fulfilled, follow the steps detailed below to get the simulator up and running.
Add a dedicated external agent for the purpose of the simulation. For that, follow the Agents -> External Agents menu sequence and click on the Add New Agent button. Then, specify the IP address/host name of the system that is hosting the dedicated external agent, and also provide a Nick name for the agent (see Figure 3).
A single eG external agent can be used to run different types of simulations (for e.g., Citrix logon simulation, VMware Horizon logon simulation, client session simulation etc).
Once this external agent is started, it simulates the entire logon process by periodically running an Exchange Logon Simulator test. Since this test is mapped to an Exchange Logon Simulator component, you now need to manage a component of that type. For this, follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence, and then pick Exchange Logon Simulator from the list of Component types. Then, click Add New Component. When Figure 4 appears, add an Exchange Logon Simulator using any IP address and nick name you want.
Figure 5 will then appear.
