In this post I will show you how to install and configure EdgeSight 5.4 for monitoring your XenApp farm. Prepare a server with IP address 192.168.1.11.
On the Windows Server 2008 R2, ensure that the TimeZone is correct.
Change the time to match that of the Domain Controller.
Configure the TCP/IP
Enable Remote Desktop
Change the Server name and join it to the XALAB.LOCAL domain.
Provide Domain Administrator credentials to allow the server to join to the domain
Restart the Server
Disable Firewall temporarily.
We are going to install EdgeSight on a separate box. This server is on the same subnet with the XenApp farm network. Later, we will install the Agent on XA server to communicate with EdgeSight.
EdgeSight is being replaced by Director.
