This guide will walk you through the HealthCheck for Azure Agentless Data Collector (ADC), including the steps to follow to add and configure hosts, change credentials to a set of machines, and view error messages pertaining to your infrastructure.
Add Hosts to the Agentless Data Collector
You need to add hosts to the HealthCheck for Azure ADC. The ADC is installed to the host machine as “Cloudamize Agentless Data Collector.”
Follow these steps to add hosts:
- Right-click the Cloudamize Agentless Data Collector icon in the Windows taskbar, and then click Open.
- Once opened, you will see the application window shown below.
- Enter the host IP address in the IP You may enter IP addresses individually (10.1.1.2), as a range (10.1.1.2-50), or as a subnet (10.1.4.0/24). You may use any combination of these formats, separated by commas.
- Enter an account name and password that has access to the hosts.
- Once the IP addresses have been entered, click Add hosts(s).
Host Connection Verification
A window opens, which checks the WMI connection to each host and reports success or failure. A summary will display the number of hosts which succeeded, failed, or were not checked. Hosts are not checked if you click Cancel during the checking process.
If the WMI connection fails for any reason, the status column displays Error. Click Show error to learn more. Read the Setting up a Remote WMI Connection article from Microsoft for more information about troubleshooting WMI connection errors.
You can edit the credentials of a host by selecting the checkbox next to the host, and then clicking Change credentials in the bottom of the application.
