Specify NMS Hosts (Original PDU)

A network management station ( NMS) host runs network management applications that monitor and control SNMP managed devices. NMS hosts provide the resources required for network management.

You can specify up to four NMS hosts on the network.

  1. Access the PDU metering unit from a system on the network.

    See Access a Metering Unit on the Network (Original PDU).

  2. Click on the Net Configuration link and log in as an admin user.

    You are prompted to log in as an admin user. By default, both the admin user name and password is admin.

  3. Scroll down the page until you see the NMS heading.
