Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To create a custom monitoring console

  1. Open Microsoft Management Console (MMC).

  2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  3. On the Standalone tab, click Add.

  4. In the snap-in list, click ActiveX Control, and then click Add.

  5. In the Insert ActiveX Control wizard, click Next.

    There is a short delay before the next dialog box appears; this is normal.

  6. In Control category, click All Categories.

  7. In Control type, click System Monitor Control.

  8. Click Next.

    The System Monitor control provides the functionality of System Monitor.

  9. In Select a name for the ActiveX control, type a name for the control, and then click Finish.


  • To open MMC, click Start, click Run, and then type mmc.

  • Creating a custom console is useful if you want to have System Monitor hosted in the same console with Event Viewer or another tool.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
