Completing the Hyper-V Sensor Setup

  Role Availability   Read-Only   Analyst   Manager

After you initialize a new USM Anywhere Sensor, you must configure it in the Setup Wizard. As you complete the Hyper-V sensor configuration, USM Anywhere performs specific actions, like running an asset discovery scan and collecting logs.

Accessing the Setup Wizard

The Setup Wizard is accessible under the following circumstances:

  • When you first log into the USM Anywhere web UI and see the WELCOME TO USM ANYWHERE page, click Get Started.
  • If you registered a first sensor, but did not complete the setup and then logged out, the USM ANYWHERE SENSOR CONFIGURATION page launches automatically at your next login to remind you to finalize configuration of the Sensor.

    Click Configure to launch the Setup Wizard and complete the Sensor configuration.

  • If you registered an additional Sensor, but did not complete the setup, the Sensors page displays the Error () icon in the CONFIGURED column.

    Click the Configure () icon on the right to launch the Setup Wizard and complete the Sensor configuration.

Configuring the Sensor in the Setup Wizard

The first time you log in from the WELCOME TO USM ANYWHERE web page, the Setup Wizard prompts you to complete the configuration of the first deployed Sensor. Thereafter, you can use the Sensors page to configure an additional Sensor or to change the configuration options for a deployed Sensor.

Note: You must have already configured your network interfaces for Hyper-V. For more information, see USM Anywhere Setup on the Hyper-V Virtual Machine.
