Run collectors in foreign (non-trusted) domains

To include resources from non-trusted domains in ARM, a collector is required in the non-trusted domain.

Depending on your network configuration, the automatic update mechanism for collectors may not work. In such cases the installation of this collector must be performed manually by using the setup, as described in Install additional collectors.

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.
