You can use a sample script to monitor operating systems in physical servers.

The sample script is tested only on Windows 2012 R2 and Windows 2016.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Download the sample script from cloud proxy from the following location: https://<cloudproxyIp>/downloads/salt/unmanagedagent_setup_sample.ps1
    Note: Use the relevant cloud proxy IP address for <cloud-proxy> in the preceding location specified.
  2. Create the user's refresh token associated with the current organization from the following location in the Cloud Service portal.
    User/Organization Settings > My Account > API Tokens >> Generate a New API Token
  3. Run the sample script.
    .\unmanagedagent_setup_sample.ps1 -c <cloudproxyIp> -t <refreshToken from previous step> -d <agent installation directory>
    If the environment is behind a corporate proxy, the script considers the proxy explicitly for external connections.
    Note: Ensure that the special characters in the user name and password are either http encoded or escaped correctly. For example:
    .\unmanagedagent_setup_sample.ps1 -c <cloudproxyIp> -t <refreshToken from previous step> -d <agent installation directory> -x http://<proxyIp>:<proxyPort> -u <proxyUser> -p <proxyPassword>
  4. Run Telegraf.
    telegraf.exe --config telegraf.conf --config-directory telegraf.d
