Configuring a connection to the RHEVH server
To configure a connection to the RHEVH server, you must run the script and respond to prompts.
Before you begin
Ensure that the user, who connects to the RHEVM, is a root user. You can use an existing user ID or create a new user ID by completing the steps that are mentioned in Creating a user and granting required permissions.
Configure the protocol that you want to use to connect to the RHEVH server by completing the steps that are described in Configuring protocols.
On the command line, run the following command:
install_dir/bin/linux_kvm-agent.sh config instance_name
/opt/ibm/apm/agent/bin/linux_kvm-agent.sh config instance_name
instance_name: The name that you want to give to the instance.
install_dir: The path where the agent is installed.
Respond to the prompts and specify values for the configuration parameters. For information about the configuration parameters, see Configuration parameters to connect to the RHEVH server.
Run the following command to start the agent:
install_dir/bin/linux_kvm-agent.sh start instance_name
/opt/ibm/apm/agent/bin/linux_kvm-agent.sh start instance_name
What to do next
Log in to the IBM Cloud Pak console to view the data that is collected by the agent in the dashboards. For more information about using the console, see Starting the Cloud App Management UI.
