OCB Quick Setup Guide: Part 8/9 Discovering Linux & Windows Servers / Guests

Logged into the Balance Web UI, click on:
Discovery > Servers > + Add server

1. Linux Servers

Choose Platform = Linux

Note: Do not add Linux or Solaris VMs here. VMs can be added by monitoring vCenter, standalone ESX or Hyper-V hosts (AIX or HP-UX should always be added here, partially because there is no option to virtualise them.)

Enter: FQDN/IP Address
Enter: Server Name
Enter: Port (usually 22)
Choose the Credentials (or click ‘Add new…’)
Click Save

2. Windows Servers

Choose Platform = Windows
“This device requires the Balance proxy to be configured”
Click Continue

Windows servers require the Balance proxy
Enter: Proxy FQDN/IP Address
Enter: Port (usually 9443)
Click Add Proxy

Add new physical server or stand alone hypervisor hosts

Choose Platform = Windows

Note: Do not add Windows VMs here. VMs can be added by monitoring vCenter, standalone ESX or Hyper-V hosts!

Enter: FQDN/IP Address
Enter: Server Name
Choose the Credentials (or click ‘Add new…’)
Click Save
