IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Remove a data collector maintenance level using command line - WAS agent

If an older maintenance level of the data collector version 7.1 is installed, and all the monitored applications server instances were updated to the new maintenance level, you can remove the older maintenance level.

To remove an unused maintenance level data collector version 7.1:

  1. cd /opt/IBM/ITM/bin 
    
    ./itmcmd config -A yn

    The itmcmd utility prompts you whether you want to change Agent configuration:

    Agent configuration started...
    Edit "ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications" settings? [ 1=Yes, 2=No ]
     (default is: 1):
    Enter 1, or press Enter to accept the default.

  2. The utility prompts you to select the configuration type:
    Select Configuration Type :
    Choose the configuration type:
     
    Configuration type description:
    
        1.Use this option to configure the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agent 
    (TEMA) port number or Agent ID. If you modify the Tivoli Monitoring Agent 
    port, all Application Servers with data collectors must be restarted to 
    complete the reconfiguration.
    
        2.Use this option to configure the data collector to monitor 
    application server instances. You can also use this option to configure the 
    data collector to connect to the Managing Server. The option requires that 
    either the Application Servers are running (WAS Base Edition) or the Node 
    Agent and Deployment Manager are running (WAS ND or XD). The Servers must 
    be restarted to complete the configuration.
    
        3.Use this option to unconfigure the data collector from Application 
    Server instances. This option will remove all data collector configuration 
    and runtime filesfor these instances. It requires that either the Application 
    Servers are running (WAS Base Edition) or the Node Agent and Deployment 
    Manager are running (WAS ND or XD). The Server instances must be restarted 
    to complete the configuration. After the unconfiguration, your Application 
    Server instances will no longer be monitored.
    
        4.Use this option to reconfigure your data collectors to use a different 
    Managing Server, change Managing Server information, or disable data collector 
    communication to the Managing Server. The data collector must be already 
    configured to monitor at least one application server instance. You will 
    need to restart the application servers monitored by the data collector.
    
        5.Use this option to upgrade ITCAM for WebSphere 6.1.x data collector 
    to ITCAM 7.1; also to upgrade ITCAM for WAS 7.0.x data collector to 
    ITCAM 7.1. It requires that either the Application Servers are running 
    (WAS Base Edition) or the Node Agent and Deployment Manager are running 
    (WAS ND or XD). The Servers must be restarted to complete the configuration.
    
        6.Use this option to update data collectors with the new maintenance or 
    reverting the update.It requires that either the Application Servers are 
    running (WAS Base Edition) or the Node Agent and Deployment Manager are 
    running (WAS ND or XD). The Servers must be restarted to complete the 
    configuration.
    
        7.Use this option to remove unused data collectors maintenance levels.
    
    
    
    Choose the configuration type: 
    [ 1=Configure Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agent (TEMA)
      2=Configure data collectors within Application Servers 
      3=Unconfigure data collectors from Application Servers
      4=Enable/disable communication to Managing Server for deep-dive diagnostics
      5=Upgrade ITCAM for WebSphere 6.1.x or ITCAM for WebSphere 7.0.x data collector to ITCAM 7.1
      6=Change data collectors maintenance level
      7=Remove unused data collectors maintenance levels ] (default is: 1):
    Type 7 and press Enter to remove a data collector maintenance level.

  3. The configuration utility prompts you for the data collector maintenance level to remove.
    data collector maintenance levels :
    
    Select data collector maintenance levels.
    data collector maintenance levels (default is: 7.1.0):
    Enter the maintenance level, or press Enter to accept the default.

  4. In the next step, you can choose to create a response file to save your configuration settings. You can use the response file to perform a silent configuration with the same parameters.
    The wizard can save your settings to a response file. A response file
     can be used to perform a silent configuration.
    Save Configuration Setting in a Response File [ 1=true,  2=false ] (default is: 2): 
    To create a response file, enter 1, then enter the name of the file. Otherwise, enter 2, or press Enter to accept the default.

  5. The configuration utility prompts you whether this Agent connects to a Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server.
    Will this agent connect to a TEMS? [1=YES, 2=NO] (Default is: 1):
    If the IBM Tivoli Monitoring infrastructure is used, enter 1. Otherwise (in a deep dive diagnostics only install), enter 2; in this case the configuration process will be completed

  6. If you have not yet configured the connection to a Monitoring Server, configure it, starting with Step 7. Otherwise, press Enter repeatedly to accept the existing settings for the connection to Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server. Alternatively, you can change these settings; see Steps 7 to 14
