OpManager Enterprise Installation


OpManager Enterprise Edition can be deployed in the following cases:

Case 1: When geographically distributed networks need to be monitored from one location.

Case 2: When the number of devices that need to be monitored is more than 1K devices.

ManageEngine recommends the installation of a Central server and a Probe to effectively achieve a distributed network monitoring environment.

Central Server: Central periodically collects health, performance and fault data across all Probes and consolidates the information in one location.

Probe Server: The Probe periodically polls the devices in the local network and updates data to the central server. It has to be installed at the Remote Location.

Note: If OpManager is run with MSSQL as the backend database, then the MSSQL database must be configured before proceeding with the following installation.
