Adding the Network Insights Appliance as a Managed Host

SUMMARY After you install the Network Insights appliance, you must add the appliance to the JSA Console as a managed host.

Ensure that the Network Insights appliance uses the same software version and fix pack level as the JSA Console that you are using to manage it.

Add the Network Insights managed host to JSA as per the instructions mentioned in Step 17 of Installing Network Insights on your Own Hardware.


JSA continues to collect events when you deploy the full configuration. When the event collection service must restart, JSA does not restart it automatically. A message displays that gives you the option to cancel the deployment and restart the service at a more convenient time.

Configure the Network Insights appliance.

Optionally, you can install the Network Insights content extension. The content extension includes custom rule engine content, including rules, searches, reports, and custom property extractions, that provide analysis, alerts, and reports for Network Insights.
