  2. Download the required service by right-clicking on the file name and clicking Save Target As.
    • If the file is a .zip file, you will need to unzip it and extract the .xml file it contains.

      Zip files often contain technical documentation specific to the service. Some include PowerScript files. See the included documentation for a description of the scripts and how to use them.

  3. Upload this custom service into SolarWinds N-central by clicking Administration > Service ManagementCustom Services, and click Import.
