Run collectors in foreign (non-trusted) domains

You must install a collector on foreign domains (non-trusted) to add resources of them to ARM.

The installation of this collector must be performed manually by using the setup, as described in Install additional collectors.

Depending on your network configuration, it is possible that the automatic update of collectors is not performed as plans. In such cases updates must be started manually.


Once installed, the collector must be added to the configuration. Collectors in foreign domains can be added immediately via the IP address.

To be able to use a name for the collector in foreign domains (non-trusted), you must extend the hosts files on both computers involved, that is, on the ARM server and on the collector server in the foreign domain.
