After you have copied the CDP Server's Public Key to the Agent (see Adding the Server Key to Windows Agent, Adding the Server Key to Linux Agent), you can add this Agent to your CDP Server.
Follow the instructions below to add an Agent to your CDP Enterprise Edition.
1. Click on "Agents" in the Main Menu to access the "Agents" page.
2. Then click "Create New Agent" in the Agents menu located in the top left area.
3. The "Create New Agent" window will appear. You will need to define the following options:
- Name - Enter a name for the Agent. It will be displayed in the "Agents" List.
- Host Name - Enter the Host Name or IP address of the Agent.
- Port Number - Define a Port to connect to the Agent if different from the default value (1167). You can configure the default Agent port using the Windows CDP Configuration Utility. See also: Configuring CDP Agent Port.
If you have Agents with the same IP addresses but with different ports in your environment, create several DNS names that resolve to the Hosts' IP. Specify different Agent port numbers.
To protect one or more SQL, MySQL and Exchange databases on the server where the Agent is installed, click the "Enable database add-on" checkbox.
To assign an Agent owner, choose a Power User from the drop-down list.
After assigning the Agent owner, you can define permissions by clicking the corresponding checkboxes.
