Managing Active Directory agents

The Active Directory agents collect data from remote Active Directory® domain controllers, which is then used to populate the health and performance metrics presented throughout Foglight for Active Directory dashboards and views.

The Foglight for Active Directory provides an additional dashboard that can be used to manage Active Directory agent instances. Therefore, the Active Directory agent instances can be created and managed using one of the following dashboards:

Agent Status dashboard (Dashboards > Administration > Agents > Agent Status)
Active Directory Environment dashboard > Administration tab (Dashboards > Active Directory Environment > Administration tab)

This section describes the Deploy Agent Package dialog, Agent Setup wizard which is used to add and configure new Active Directory agents and the Agent Management view which is populated with information about each Active Directory agent instance. It also provides a description of the Active Directory agent properties used to connect to the target server from which data is to be collected.

Agent Status dashboard

The Agent Status dashboard allows you to deploy agent packages and create agent instances one host at a time. Once an agent is created, use this dashboard to view agent information and edit the properties of one or more agents.

For more information about using the Agent Status dashboard to create and manage agent instances, see “Deploying agent packages to monitored hosts” in the Foglight Administration and Configuration Help.

Active Directory/Certificate Authority agent management

The Active Directory Environment dashboard > Administration tab allows you to create agent instances for one or more servers at a time, activate or deactivate Active Directory agents or Certificate Authority agents, and start and stop collecting data.

The Administration tab consists of the following components:

Tasks list

The Tasks list, in the upper left corner of the view, contains a list of tasks that can be performed from this view.

Clicking the Script for configuring the Active Directory settings link on this list downloads and runs a script that automatically configures the Domain Controllers and WinRM. For me ore information, see the readme.txt file included in the script ZIP file.
