Configure AppInsight for IIS on nodes in SAM

SAM offers two automated ways to configure AppInsight for IIS on nodes:

  • For new nodes, use the Add Node wizard.
  • For existing nodes, navigate to the Node Details view.

You can also configure AppInsight for IIS manually.

To use the Add Node wizard to set up AppInsight for IIS on a new node:

  1. Review AppInsight for IIS requirements and permissions.
  2. (Optional) Watch this video.
  3. Click Settings > All Settings > Add Node.
  4. Complete the information on the Define Node step, and then click Next.
  5. On the Choose Resources step in the Add Node Wizard, select AppInsight for IIS.
  6. Click Next and complete the wizard as instructed.
  7. Navigate to the SAM Summary page.
  8. In the All Applications widget, expand the AppInsight for IIS tree view to display the new node.
  9. Click Microsoft IIS to open the Configure IIS Server for Monitoring dialog box.

  10. Enter Exchange credentials and click Configure Server to start the automated process. A confirmation message appears when the process is complete.

    If the node enters an Unknown state, check AppInsight for IIS requirements and permissions for the target server.

To add AppInsight for IIS to an existing node via the Node Details view:

  1. Navigate to the Node Details view for the node.
  2. In the Management widget, click List Resources.

  3. Select the Microsoft IIS check box and click Submit.

    If the Microsoft IIS option does not appear, review AppInsight for IIS requirements and permissions.

  4. Navigate to the SAM Summary page.
  5. In the All Applications widget, expand the AppInsight for IIS tree view to display the node.
  6. Click Microsoft IIS to open the Configure IIS Server for Monitoring dialog box.
  7. Enter Exchange credentials, and then click Configure Server to start the automated process. A confirmation message appears when the process is complete.
