IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Configure a data collector for multiple network interfaces

If the application server host has multiple IP addressed at the time of data collector configuration, the Configuration tool will set the preferred IP address for communication with the Managing Server. If more than one IP address is added later, set the preferred IP address manually, as described in this section.

If the data collector needs to expose a specific IP to the Managing Server, complete one of the following steps:

  1. In the data collector custom properties file, set the am.socket.exportip and am.socket.bindip properties to the IP address to be exposed.

  2. In the file...

      DC_home/runtime/appserver_version.node_name.server_name/dc.java.properties

    ...set the appserver.rmi.host property to the IP address to be exposed.

  3. Make sure that the Managing server can access the required IP address of the data collector (You can verify this by doing a ping).

  4. If the data collector is using Port Consolidator:

    1. In the data collector custom properties file, set the proxy.host property to the IP address to be exposed.

    2. In the file...

        DC_home/itcamdc/etc/proxy.properties

      ...set the am.socket.exportip and am.socket.bindip properties to the IP address to be exposed.

    3. In the Port Consolidator start script...

      • DC_home/itcamdc/bin/proxyserverctrl_ws.bat
      • DC_home/itcamdc/bin/proxyserverctrl_ws.sh

      ...set the property JAVA_RMI_SERVER_HOSTNAME to the IP address to be exposed.
