    Adding a monitor to all machines

      Is there a way to quickly add a monitor to all managed devices? I have been asked to monitor that all devices have anti virus running and was hoping there was a quick way to add a service monitor across all devices.

          Hello Amozzo,

          The following should work.

          1. Go to "Devices" tab.

          2. Click "Discovery -> Previous Scan Results"

          3. At the top of the Device List, click "SmartMonitor Settings".

          4. Uncheck everything from this list and check the Anti-virus service.

          5. Click "Save".

          6. Back at the Device list, the "Monitors to be added" column should have a "1" for every Device that has that service.

          7. Click "Add All Scanned Device" or select the Device you wish to monitor and click "Add Only Selected Devices".

          That should do it.

          Sincerely,

              worked, thanks. Seems obvious now. I guess I was over thinking it.

                I guess I'm overthinking it also. Where is the "Devices" tab ?

                    The "Devices" tab only exists within ipMonitor version 9.  It's web interface is broken down into 4 sections (tabs).  

                    -Dashboard: Where you get a summary of the Monitors and Devices of the group you are viewing.

                    -Devices: Typically this is the tab used to configure your Monitors, Devices and Groups.

                    -Reports: This is where you view canned reports as well as configure your own reports.

                    -Configuration: This is where you configure things such as Report Publishers, Alerts, Maintenance Schedules and general installations settings.

                    Sincerely,
