The BDA agent is installed as any other system service within your operating system. The commands will vary depending on your operating system, distribution and version. For instructions on how to manage system services from the command line, please refer to the Operating System documentation. In most cases there are many ways of managing these services from the command line.
Redhat Linux: 11.2. Configuring the Services
Microsoft Windows: Net services commands
Also, you'll need to know the service name for BDA. It is "dagent"
So, for example, you might run these commands:
- service dagent restart (Linux)
- net start dagent (I just tried this on Windows Server 2008 R2)
These are RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.6 and Windows 2012 R2.
We manager our service by Patrol and monitor BDA manager, however we have no idea how to manage BDA agent on remote site.
Is your question about connecting to the host where the BDA Agent resides and managing the agent? Or is it about configuring communication between the BDA Manager and the BDA Agent?
This is about communication between Manager and Agent.
This will largely be about opening up the correct ports and looking at latency. To start with, you might want to take a look at https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/public/bda87/General+deployment+concepts+and+recommendations, particularly the "General Consideration" section.
Thank you all.
It is on the configure_dagent.sh.
For AIX, start by "/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/Sdagent start" and "stop"
