After you install the QRadar Console and QRadar Risk Manager, you add QRadar Risk Manager as a managed host by using the System and License Management tool on the Admin tab. A QRadar Risk Manager appliance is preinstalled with the QRadar Risk Manager software and a Red Hat Enterprise Linux® operating system.
