To benefit from some of the N1 System Management functionality, you must add features to the servers. The two types of features are base management and OS monitoring. The base management feature is required for basic OS monitoring, OS updates, and remote commands. The OS monitoring feature provides advanced OS monitoring, including support for threshold monitoring. When a feature is added, the feature is installed on the server, the specified agent credentials are set, and the feature becomes supported on the server. In the case of the OS monitoring feature, monitoring is also enabled if not already enabled. The Base Management Supported and OS Monitoring Supported fields in the show server output provide the current support status on a server's features.
There are some situations when you need to use the upgrade keyword to upgrade the existing features on a server. Refer to the N1 System Manager Discovery and Administration Guide for more information
