Monitor configuration changes on a node in SCM
In Server Configuration Monitor (SCM), set up configuration monitoring on a server, see suggestions of servers to monitor, and see the recent changes.
This assumes you have already added the node to the SolarWinds Platform. See Add a node to SCM for details.
To begin monitoring server configurations, you must assign one or more configuration profiles to the server.
