Step by step how to Install Diagnostics Agent and connect the agent to adaptive computing

In order to work with system monitoring in Solution Manager you must install diagnostic agent, and host agent.

  1. Host Agent: the host agent work with outside discovery to collect OS data information

      and managed system by the Adaptive Computing Controller (ACC) 

      For Solman 7.1 the SAP Host Agent must be at level 7.20 SP83. Check note 1365123 in the following section:

      IMPORTANT: In any case, please pay attention at least to 6 essential rules,

      Which are described in the attached slides

      Solution Manager 7.1 requires having at least a SAP Host Agent 7.20 SP83

   2. Diagnostics Agent: the Diagnostics Agent must be configured in Solution Manager for Root Cause Analysis function,

      It allows to perform a connection between SAP Solution Manager as the managing system

       and the managed system(s)

      and then to gather information from the managed systems and reports them to the Solution Manager system.

      You can also install it as a standalone engine,

      for example if you want a non-SAP system to be managed by SAP Solution Manager Diagnostics

     To configure the agent in Solution Manager navigate to manage system configuration – configure system – step 3 (assign diagnostics agents)

      Good Document.....But had a doubt regarding SAPHOSTAGENT. Does the SAPHOSTAGENT version depend on the version of SAP System Installed in the Managed system? Eg: we have ECC 6.0 system, which version of SAPHOSTAGENT needs to be installed on this system?

       

      Thank You.
