Issue/Introduction

Nis config is the configured key within hardware and software monitoring points which tell the Appneta servers which organization a monitoring points belongs to. In some situations, we might need a nis.config file to apply to monitoring points that are missing the configuration, are moving in between organizations etc. 

Cause

  • Misconfigured appliance
  • Moving appliance to a new org

Resolution

  1. So the first step is to get the nis.config file is to log into the AppNeta, and navigate to the Organization.
  2. Go through Add Monitoring Point feature, and you'll see the "Direct Connect" option here:

  3. Expand Direct Connect;
  4. Select Download, your browser will prompt you to save the file. 

  5. In my example, you can see the Org is called "Graham Internal Test2" so the file name is called :  

    graham_internal_test2_nis.config.config

  6. The file name should be changed prior to uploading on to a monitoring point to simply nis.config

With the nis.config file, you may which to apply it into your monitoring points.  See Additional Information below.

 

Additional Information

NIS.Config's are identical for all monitoring points within the same Organization, though every Child organization has its own unique site key and thus NIS.Config.
