Create a monitoring location

A monitoring location associates an instance, connectivity profile, and feature profile with a network area. This could be a physical location (for example, Pittsboro Office, building 3) or a virtual location. You must define at least one monitoring location to assign a Minion to an appliance. This is the penultimate step to set up communication between your Minion Appliance and OpenNMS.

  1. Choose Locations in the left menu and click Add New.

  2. Specify the name, instance, and profiles and click Add New.

    Location names can contain only alphanumeric and '-.' characters. Only ASCII characters are permitted.

To edit or delete a location, click the pencil or trash icon beside the location name.

Changes to a location’s configuration respawns all Minions associated with that location. This process triggers a brief service interruption.
