How to Monitor Symantec Backup Server Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise can monitor a Symantec Backup Server in an agent-based or an agentless manner. To monitor the backup server in an agentless manner, you need to deploy an eG agent on a remote Windows host in the environment.

Managing the Symantec Backup Server

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Symantec Backup server so that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To add a Symantec Backup server component for monitoring, 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 Symantec Backup Server as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.

  5. Next, sign out of the eG administrative interface.
