Monitoring server configurations is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and is also available in a standalone module, Server Configuration Monitor (SCM). Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and SCM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

Add a node through the Add Node wizard in Server Configuration Monitor (SCM)

  1. In the SolarWinds Platform Web Console menu, navigate to Settings > Manage Nodes.
  2. Click Add Node.
  3. Specify the node, and click Next.
    1. Provide the host name or IP address.
    2. Select the polling method, and provide credentials.

      Most SCM monitoring requires polling via an SolarWinds Platform Agent for Windows or Linux.

  4. In the Choose Resources step, select the profiles you would like to monitor under Server Configuration. Click Next.

    Only out-of-the-box profiles can be assigned this way. To assign custom profiles, see Assign configuration profiles to a node.
