A MECM connector has the following options:
- Connector name. A name for the connector.
- Connector server name. The name of the connector server that this connector is associated with. Each connector can only be associated with one connector server. If you added the connector to a specific connector server, this field may be populated for you. Otherwise, you can select the connector server from the list.
- SQL server name. The fully-qualified domain name of the server where the MECM/SCCM database is.
- SQL database. The name of the SQL Server database.
- Authentication. The type of authentication to use to access the database.
- Username and Password. Credentials to access the database. This can be a read-only user.
- Repeats. How often the connector should gather data.
- Start time. The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
- Active. Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.
