Open Zabbix GUI on you browser and finish installation http://yourdomain/zabbix. Also you need to install zabbix-agent on your node.

Zabbix agent

Add epel repository:

yum install epel-release

Install zabbix agent:

yum install zabbix-agent

After this open:

nano /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf

And insert:   # IP-address or DNS of your zabbix-server
Hostname=Zabbix server            # Host name must be similar with Configuration -> Hosts in GUI

Add autostarting and start the agent:

chkconfig zabbix-agent on
service zabbix-agent start

Now you need to add this node in zabbix GUI. How to do this, you can see in official zabbix documentation
