You need an existing, up-to-date Lansweeper Classic installation to link with Lansweeper Cloud. Install or update Lansweeper Classic using the latest available installer, if you haven't already. Follow the installation instructions and update instructions to ensure full compatibility with Lansweeper Cloud.
Link with Lansweeper Cloud
Once you've set up your Lansweeper installation and scanned your data, you can start the process of linking the installation with the cloud site.
On the server hosting your local Lansweeper installation, go to the web console and select Link with Cloud site.
Every 12 hours, prerequisite checks are performed in the background of your system to ensure your installation can be linked to a cloud site.
Select Link with Cloud site. If you have multiple scan servers, you will be asked which one should be responsible for syncing with Lansweeper Cloud. This server will be the sync server.
If any prerequisite checks have failed, follow the provided instructions to resolve them and select Retry when you're ready. For more information, see Lansweeper Cloud linking requirements.
You only need one sync server for your entire local installation.
Enter your email address and select Confirm. If you are not already logged in, you will be redirected to a login page.
Either select an existing site in the list to link to, or create a new site. If you select Create new site, Lansweeper Cloud will create a site for you.
To link an installation with Lansweeper Cloud, you must create at least one site in your account. You can create multiple sites to further group and separate your local installations. For more information, see Create a site in Lansweeper Cloud.
If a site appears to be locked, you might not have permission to link to that site.
Select Copy linking code. You will need to enter this code in your local web console later.
Enter your site's linking code in the local web console and select Submit.
After Lansweeper has verified the site's linking code, your local installation will perform an initial sync with Lansweeper Cloud. Depending on how much data is in your local Lansweeper installation, this process might take a while.
The Lansweeper Cloud site will display your installation's data in the Inventory module. More information on the Inventory module can be found in View assets.
Browse to Configuration > Installations to view the details of your linked installations. If you have multiple local installations linked to the same cloud site, all of these installations will be listed there.
You can switch between sites using the Change site menu in the top left corner of the interface.
