Hello,
First steps would be understand MPLS/VPLS and know what you expect. For the implementation part, having all your MPLS-wannabe network fully routed will be helpful.

Re: Add new Prob to hundreds servers

you can try adding your servers' networks to the discovery list. It will force a service discovery for all devices on the specified network and will add the new probe.

keep in mind that it will also re-add all the probes you removed from a specific device.
