    The default URL format is https://Server_IP_or_HOSTNAME:port

    Where:
    • Server_IP_or_HOSTNAME is the IP address or hostname of Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server.
    • port is the default port for ITM.

      The default port is 15200.

  7. In the Managed System Name field, enter the correct Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server name.

    If you enter an incorrect name for a valid connector source, then an error message that indicates you to select a different source is displayed. For more information, see Getting the Managed System Name for ITM Connectors.

  10. To make sure that the connection to the data source is successful, click Test Connection.

    If the connection to the data source fails, then a message that indicates the reason for connection failure is displayed. You must fix the errors and test the connection again.
