DNS (required for monitoring clusters)

If you want to monitor clusters on a different network from your Base Monitor, you need to set up DNS. This means that on the Add SQL Server screen, when you enter the name of a cluster or node, SQL Monitor can detect all the nodes on the cluster.

If you're only monitoring standalone machines, you don't need to set up DNS. Instead, on the Add SQL Server screen, enter the IP address of the machine you want to monitor.
