Test SCM profile elements before deploying them

Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) now features a TEST button for monitoring in the Add/Edit/View configuration element dialog box. Test any type of element to see whether it works on one of your monitored nodes before you deploy it to your servers.

  1. To use the test function, add a configuration element for monitoring, and then click Test.
    Add configuration element

    SCM displays a list of nodes on your machine from which you can choose. (In the following example, a Linux machine is selected, as the user wants to execute a bash command.)

  2. Click Select & Test.
    Select and test node

  3. SCM displays your test result.
