Installing and Configuring ITCAM for Apps 6.2.2: Peoplesoft Process Scheduler Agent FP1 on a Windows Server

by bluemedora_editor on March 31, 2010

The process for installing the ITCAM for Apps 6.2.2: Peoplesoft Process Scheduler Agent FP1 is exactly the same as installing the Domain Agent, but the configuration differs slightly. The demo environment for this blog is a Windows Server 2003 machine with PeopleSoft 8.49.

Configuration

To configure the agent, first start the “Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Services” tool. There may be an stoplight icon on the desktop. Otherwise, you will have to click the shortcut in the Start menu. Double click on “Monitoring Agent for PeopleSoft Process Scheduler” template to begin configuration of a new instance:[vc_single_image image=”2282″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”]Enter a descriptive instance name and click OK: Now you will see the agent configuration screen. Below is a list of the different configuration options and a sample value:
