Administering eG Enterprise to Monitor Microsoft System Management Server

First, administrator needs to administer the eG manager to monitor the Microsoft SMS. To achieve this, do the following:

  1. Login to the administrative interface of eG as an administrator (admin).
  2. If the Microsoft SMS is automatically discovered, then use the COMPONENTS – MANAGE / UNMANAGE page to manage the server. On the other hand, if the Microsoft SMS is not discovered automatically, then either run discovery to get them discovered (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) or add them using the COMPONENTS page (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify) (see Figure 1). Components manually added will be automatically managed by the eG Enterprise system (see Figure 1).
