Pinned topic VIOS ILMT agent installation

‏2012-10-04T05:27:29Z |
Dear Support

I am not sure whether it is required to install ILMT agent on VIOS lpars ?
Any legal issues if the report doesn't contain VIOS lpars information ?
Normally, we don't set IP address for VIOS lpar for security issue, what would be your advise if required?

2nd questions, please kindly confirm my understanding for the following statement >>
ILMT Agent always initiates HTTP(S) connections to ILMT server ?
Any other situation ILMT Server will try to connect to ILMT agent ?

Finally questions, during the ILMT implementation, I configure Test mode in order to fasten the report generation, verification and troubleshooting, and after satisfied, I want to change mode back to Production , the problem is I want to clear all old report and information and start a fresh information once again. How can I archive it ?

    Hi,

    1. The ILMT agent is not required on VIOS.
    2. The TCP SYN always comes from agent.
    3. Are the old reports signed?

    Best regards,

    Dear Support

    The old report is never signed because of just for verification purpose. Not sure what would be the differences between unsigned and signed report in practice of clearing old data ?

    Anyway, thanks for first 2 questions

      Hi,

      when you have signed report you should use purgedatabase command. For all other reports it's enough to delete them on Audit Reports panel. The next task would be to set some parameters to their production values.

      Personally, for POC -> Production migration I'd suggest reinstalling the administration database component as it seems to be the fastest and easiest way. Please be aware, that this will clean up everything:
      • scan data
      • settings
      • bundles
      • software catalog, PVU table, Systems tier table will be reverted to the versions delivered with the server installer

      Best regards,
