A server contains the required information to connect to a Virtual DataPort server through JMX. It is represented in the tree area with the icon.
There are two ways to create a server:
- In the Options menu, click New Server.
- Or in the tree area, right-click on or on an environment and click New Server….
The Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool will open the dialog below. Fill the form and click Create.
The Tool will use the credentials and the database you enter to create the JMX connection
to Virtual DataPort. If the database is not set, the Tool sends
admin by default. This user
account needs to meet these conditions:
- Be an administrator user.
- Or have the
EXECUTEprivileges over the database specified in the field Database of the New Server dialog or over the
admindatabase if the database is not indicated. The Tool requires these privileges because it connects to the database to obtain the i18n settings of the Virtual DataPort server.
To connect to the server using an LDAP user, you have to set the field Database to a Virtual DataPort database configured with LDAP authentication.
If you want to connect to the server using Kerberos authentication, you still need to provide valid values for the user and password fields. Although you have logged in the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool using Single Sign-On, your credentials are not reused when monitoring a server.
