IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 22.214.171.124
Silent configuration - ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications - WAS agent
You can use the configuration utility in silent mode to perform all configuration tasks for ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications.
First prepare a response file in one of two ways:
- Modify a copy of a sample response file
cp ITM_home/samples/silentsample.txt /tmp/mysilentsample.txt
- Create response file as part of GUI install.
During install, check the box...
Save Configuration Setting in a Response File box
Saving a response file is not available for configuring Monitoring Agent connection to the monitoring server.
When modifying set \ characters to \\, : characters to \:, and prefix spaces with \. For example...
To modify the profile home path for Data Collector Configuration, or the instance name in data collector unconfiguration or upgrade, make sure to replace all occurrences.
Run the Configuration utility in silent mode
After preparing the response file for a configuration task, run the configuration utility, specifying the path and name for the response file. Perform the following procedure:
- Invoke the configuration utility. Specify the parameters in the exact order shown:
itmcmd -A -p response_file_name yn
...where response_file_name is the name of the response file you have prepared (with full path). For example:
itmcmd -A -p /tmp/silent.txt yn
Modify sample response files for configuration tasks
For each of the configuration tasks for ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications, a sample response file is available in...
Make a copy of the file and edit it as required, using the information provided in the comments within the file.
Configuring monitoring agent connections to the monitoring server, and data collector connections to the monitoring agent, are performed with one response file. Perform this configuration task before configuring the data collector to monitor any application server instances.
Do not perform this task if Tivoli Monitoring is not used (in a deep dive diagnostics only installation). The sample file name is ynv_silent_config_wasdc.txt.
Configure the data collector to monitor an application server instance ynv_silent_config_wasdc.txt Unconfigure the data collector from an application server instance ynv_silent_unconfig_wasdc.txt Configure the data collector communication with the Managing Server ynv_silent_config_ms.txt Upgrade an application server instance from an older version of the data collector ynv_silent_upgrade_wasdc.txt Change the data collector maintenance level for monitoring an application server instance ynv_silent_reconfig_wasdc.txt Remove unused data collector maintenance levels ynv_silent_remove_unused_wasdc.txt
The response file is a text file, containing parameter names and values in the format parameter=value, for example:
Comment lines begin with a number sign (#). Blank lines are ignored.
Any \ character must be escaped as \\, : as \:, and spaces must be prefixed with \, for example:
In the file sections marked as "repeatable", parameters are specific to a profile path or an application server instance name. For these parameters, use the path or name as a key, in the format parameter.key=value.
