Administering eG Manager to monitor IIS Web Server
After installation of eG agent, please follow the following steps to configure eG to monitor an IIS web server.
The Components page will then appear. In the Components page, select Microsoft IIS Web as the Component type and click the Add New Component button. Figure 1 will then appear.
If a Microsoft Transaction server (MTS) is available on the target IIS web server, then, you can manage the MTS server along with your IIS web server by setting the MTS enabled flag to Yes. This will automatically add a Microsoft Transaction server component, with the same IP-nickname as the IIS web server (see Figure 2)
Components added using the Components page will automatically appear in the Managed Components list of the Components - Manage / Unmanage / Delete page (see Figure 3). Discovered servers, on the other hand, need to be managed manually using the Components - Manage / Unmanage / Delete page (see Figure 3). For accessing this page, use the menu sequence Infrastructure -> Components ->Manage/Unmanage/Delete. The screen below shows all the IIS Web Servers discovered in a given range but not managed. Select the component-type that requires monitoring from the Component type list. To manage a particular component of the selected type, select the component from the Unmanaged Componenets list and click on the button and finally, the Update button.
After managing the web server, the screen would appear as shown below:

Then, proceed to configure web sites and related transactions for the IIS web server. Refer to Monitoring Apache Web Server document for a more elaborate discussion on how to configure web sites and transactions.
