You can let the Monitoring Server automatically determine which subnets it will monitor. However, if your network is large or if the subnets are organized hierarchically, you may want to configure the monitoring locations yourself.

The following options are available for determining the network locations that will be monitored:

To specify locations for monitoring

  1. Using an account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdminsgroup, open the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 snap-in: Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Office Communications Server 2007 R2.

  2. In the console tree, expand the Forestnode, and then expand Monitoring Servers.

  3. Right-click the monitoring server you want to configure, and then click Properties.

  4. In the Propertiesdialog box, click the Locationstab.

  5. Do one of the following:

    • To allow the locations to be automatically discovered from endpoint call quality reports, click Automatic. Click the type of automatic location discovery that you want to use. If you click Single subnet mask, type a subnet mask in the corresponding box. After you configure the settings, click OK. Skip the rest of this procedure.

    • To use a .CSV file to specify locations to monitor, click Imported, and then click Import.

      Whenever you change the way that monitoring locations are discovered, Monitoring Server stops monitoring the old locations and starts monitoring the new locations as endpoint call quality reports arrive.
  6. On the Welcome to the Monitoring Server Location Import Wizardpage, click Next.

  7. On the Choose Source Locationpage, enter the location of the .CSV file or click Browseto select a location, and then click Next.

  8. On the Import Confirmationpage, click Next.

  9. When the wizard has completed, select the View the log when you click Finishcheck box, and then click Finish.

  10. In the log file, verify that <Success> appears under the Execution Resultcolumn. Look for <Success> Execution Result at the end of each task to verify the locations were imported successfully. Close the log window when you finish.
