How to add Operating Systems or Servers to Sitescope

How to add Windows or Linux Servers to Sitescope:

In order to monitor a server first we need to add the server to Sitescope. For example, if you install Weblogic on a windows server, first we will add that server or operating system to Sitescope and then we can able to monitor that server as well as the Weblogic Application and its counters.

I will show you how to add a Windows machine and a Linux machine to the Sitescope. 

Adding Windows Machine to Sitescope:

1. Click on Remote Servers Tab on Sitescope
2. Click New Microsoft Windows Remote Server.
3. Enter the IP address of the machine.
4. Give the credential for the machine.
5. Click on save and test.

It will add the server to Sitescope. Once we add the servers we can easily add the monitors / counters that we needed.

Note: In order to add server, you need to have administrative privileges, username and password of that server or operating system.

Adding Linux Machine to Sitescope:

Click on Remote Servers
Click on Unix Remote Servers:
Click on New Unix Remote Server:
Enter the IPadress of the machine and give the credentials of the machine, i.e. username and password and select operating System as Linux and the method as SSH.

Please note that you can connect through three methods from Sitescope to Linux server.


If you are connecting through SSH / Telnet / Rlogin you need to activate the same process on your Linux server before adding. Sometimes the process might not be running on your Linux server this leads to getting errors while adding Linux server to Sitescope.

You can also add a Linux server using private or public key. We have a separate option for adding SSH private or public key. Go to advanced settings while adding through SSH we need to add the SSH private key path at ‘key file for ssh connections’ option and the default path to add private key is C:\SiteScope\groups\indentity.  Please note that we need to create this identity file manually in this path.
