Changing the Preferred Collector (New UI)

Last updated on 26 April, 2024

When adding a resource manually, you must select a preferred Collector that should monitor that resource. For resources discovered using NetScan, the Collector that discovered the resource is automatically assigned to monitor it.

Changing the preferred Collector: 

  • For a single resource: Change the preferred Collector from the resource’s Manage dialog, which is accessed by highlighting the resource in the Resources tree and clicking the Manage button.
  • For multiple resources in a group: Change the preferred Collector for one or more resources in a normal group from the device group manage dialog. For more information, see Adding Resource Groups.
  • For all resources managed by a Collector: Select the Devices button for the Collector monitoring the resource. Check select the desired resources, and then click Change Preferred Collector.
