The setup procedure for the Monitor Agent in a Windows cluster is similar to the setup procedure for the POA and the MTA. Therefore, you should already have the skills necessary to set up the Monitor Agent as well.
When you first install the Monitor Agent, it gathers information about agents to monitor from a domain database (wpdomain.db). This provides the resource group IP address of each agent. When an agent fails over or migrates to a different node, its status in Monitor displays as until it is up and running again, at which time its status returns to .
Because the Monitor Agent must use resource group IP addresses to monitor the agents in a clustered GroupWise system, theand options do not work in a cluster. Resource group IP addresses cannot be obtained by examining the network itself. If you need to add agents to monitor, use the option and provide the agent’s resource group IP address.
