How to Monitor Microsoft Remote Authentication Service (RAS) Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise is capable of monitoring the Microsoft Remote Authentication Service (RAS) in both agent-based and agentless manners. In case of the agentless approach, the remote agent used to monitor the server should be deployed on a remote Windows host in the environment. Manage the Microsoft Remote Authentication Service (RAS) using eG administrative interface to start monitoring the server. The procedure for achieving this is explained in the following section.

Managing the Microsoft RAS

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Microsoft RAS. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To manage a Microsoft RAS component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select Microsoft RAS as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.
