Creating Servers

A server contains the required information to connect to a Virtual DataPort server through JMX. It is represented in the tree area with the server icon.

There are two ways to create a server:

  1. In the Options menu, click New Server.

  2. Or in the tree area, right-click on home or on an environment folder 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 jmxadmin role and the CONNECT privilege over the database specified in the Database field of the New Server dialog (or over the admin database if the database is not indicated). The Tool requires this privilege because it connects to the database to obtain the i18n settings of the Virtual DataPort server.

Note

To connect to the server using an LDAP user, you have to set the Database field to a Virtual DataPort database configured with LDAP authentication.

Note

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.
