Add an On-Premise Poller for different servers having similar host name and IP address

On-Premise Poller helps monitor your internal network/resources behind the firewall. To add an On-Premise Poller for multiple servers having similar hostname and IP addresses, please follow the steps given below:
  1. Install the Poller agent. Refer here to know how to install a Poller for Windows and Linux
  2. Go to "Installation directory/Site24x7OnPremisePoller/conf" folder.
  3. Edit the serveragent.config file.
  4. Change the parameters MONAGENTID and AGENTUID = SITE24X7NEW
  5. Add two new config into the file for the differentiation of On-Premise Pollers. This is used to differentiate On-Premise Pollers from an existing poller if being added in a machine with a similar hostname or IP. 
    LOCAL_HOSTNAME=<user_defined_hostname that will be set to poller>
    LOCAL_IPADDRESS=<user_defined_ipaddress>
    The two will be set in the On-Premise Poller configuration in Site24x7
  6. Restart the On-Premise Poller
This will add a new agent that will be considered as a second Poller.
