How to Monitor LDAP Server Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise is capable of monitoring the LDAP server in both agentless and agent-based manners. To start monitoring the LDAP server, first you have to manage the LDAP component using the eG administrative interface. The procedure to achieve this is explained below.

Managing the LDAP Server

The eG Enterprise can automatically discover the LDAP server. However, the discovered LDAP component is managed manually. To achieve this, do the following:

  1. Login to the eG administrative interface.
  2. To manage the LDAP server that is already discovered, directly proceed towards managing it using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page (Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage).
  3. However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or add the component manually using the COMPONENTSpage (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically.
  4. Discovered components, however, are managed using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE / UNMANAGE page.Figure 6 and Figure 6 clearly illustrate the process of managing the LDAP server.

  5. Once the discovered component is managed, sign out of the administrative interface.
