Both the Monitoring Server and the metric report consumer server will usually be located within your organization’s internal network, so you will not need an HTTP proxy. By default, Monitoring Server will not use any HTTP proxy, and it will send the reports directly to the FQDN of the metric report consumer. You can, however, configure Monitoring Server to use the existing proxy settings that are configured for the Monitoring Server by either local machine or Group Policy settings.

  1. Log on to the Monitoring Server as a member of the Administratorsgroup.
