Administering eG Enterprise to Monitor a Microsoft Hyper-V Server
To monitor a Microsoft Hyper-V / Hyper-V VDI server using eG, follow the steps below:
- Log into the eG administrative interface.
The eG manager is capable of auto-discovering the Hyper–V / Hyper-V VDI server. If these servers are already discovered, then use the Infrastructure -> Components ->Manage/Unmanage menu to manage them. Otherwise run discovery process using the menu sequence: Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover and manage the Hyper-V servers as detailed in Figure 1 to Figure 2. While Figure 1 and Figure 2 depict how to manage an auto-discovered Hyper-V server, Figure 3 and Figure 4 show how to manage an Hyper-V VDI server using eG. As shown, first select the Component type, then pick the servers to be managed from the Unmanaged Components list, and click the < button to manage the servers. Finally, click the Update button.
Alternatively, you can also manually add the target Hyper-V / Hyper- VDI servers using the COMPONENTS page (see Figure 5 and Figure 6 ). The components so added are automatically managed. To access this page, follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence.
When you attempt to sign out, for a Hyper-V server, a list of unconfigured tests appears as in Figure 7. For a Hyper-V VDI server, a list of unconfigured tests.
Figure 8 : List of tests to be configured for Hyper-V VDI Server
Click on the Hyper-V VM Information test to configure it.
- To know how to configure the test, refer to the topic on Hyper-V VM Information test.
- After configuring the test, click on the Update button in Figure 9.
- Once the component is managed, switch to the monitoring console by clicking on the Monitor tab. In the monitoring console, You can view the current status of the Hyper-V / Hyper-V VDI server. You can zoom into the managed Hyper-V / Hyper-V VDI server and view its layer model, tests, and measurements in the console. For more details on the layer model, refer to the topics on Hyper-V and Hyper-V VDI monitoring models.
