Adding a Server

Adding a Server

In a distributed deployment scenario, use the maintenance tool client to add and manage eSight servers, including the network traffic collector. The maintenance tool server where the eSight platform is located is displayed on the page by default, without the need of being manually added.


Before adding a server, ensure that:

  • You have logged in to the maintenance tool. For details, see Logging In to and Out of the Maintenance Tool.
  • The port of the server to be added communicates properly with the SSH port of the maintenance tool.
  • The software installation path on the server to be added is consistent with that on the master server.
  • Adding a server to the maintenance tool will cause automatic restart of the eSight service on the server. Therefore, perform this operation when the eSight service is not affected.


  1. Choose System > Server Management from the main menu.
  2. On the Server Management page, click Add a Server.


    By default, the master server is displayed on the page and you do not need to manually add it.

  3. In the Add a Server dialog box, set the parameters. For details, see Table 3-2.

    Table 3-2 Server parameters
