    Hi,

    I assume you have installed the agent, i.e. used the installation bundle that install the TEMA agent.
    This has also copied on your HD all the files for data collector (somewhere under ITM_HOME there is wasdc directory).
    To start the configuration tool, that will look a bit different from the one you were used to, just open the MTEMS and reconfigure the ITCAM for AD TEMA. That will pop a dialog to config DC into WAS instance.
    More details here:

    Hope it helps

    Yes, there was a change. There is no separate Data Collector installer now.

    Install the Monitoring Agent on every host with WAS that you want to monitor - this installer also installs (but does not automatically configure) the Data Collector (DC).

    Then, use MTMS to start agent configuration - and, from there, configure the DC as necessary.

    For details, refer to the relevant chapters of the installation guide (either for Windows or for Linux/UNIX systems). The guide is here:

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v24r1/topic/com.ibm.itcamfad.doc_7101/was_agent_install_dist.html

    After the installation procedure, each of the operating system chapters tells you how to configure or upgrade the DC.

    thanks for the support, We are not using ITM in our environment, still i tried to install the ITM for WAS agent first and it displays the below error:
