Let me guess: You have been using UCM Collector to monitor your server infrastructure, and everything is going great. Except for one minor issue: Whenever a new server spins up, you need to spend 2 to 3 minutes to install the collector agent on the new server. And sometimes, you forget to install the UCM Collector on a new server, and your monitoring has gaps that you are not even aware of.
This blog talks about a nifty little UCM feature that many users are not aware of. Did you know that you can automate the installation process for UCM Collector for Linux, Windows or Mac servers? You can write scripts to ensure that the UCM Collector is installed and monitoring is automatically started as soon as a new server gets added to your environment.
Free up your time and also be 100% confident that nothing has slipped through the gaps causing a monitoring black hole that you are not even aware of.
