Configuring Windows Virtual Machines to Support the eG Agent’s Inside View without the eG VM Agent
For the "inside" view, by default, the eG agent uses SSH/WMI (depending upon the virtual OS to be monitored) to communicate remotely with the virtual machines on the KVM server and collect metrics. To establish this remote connection with Windows VMs in particular, eG Enterprise requires that the eG agent be configured with domain administrator privileges. Besides, the inside view using flag of all “inside view” tests should be set to Remote connection to a VM.
In addition, the following pre-requisites need to be fulfilled:
- The admin$ share will have to be available on the Windows guests. See Enabling ADMIN$ Share Access on Windows Virtual Guests.
- The Windows Firewall should be configured to allow Windows File and Print Sharing. See Configuring Windows Firewalls to Allow File and Print Sharing.
