you need to identify the number and type of servers that need to be

Whether you are planning to use IBM Sterling Control Center

In the server list, icons are displayed next to each server name
to provide visual indicators of server status.
Attention: Automatically discovered servers, such as IBM Global
High Availability Mailbox servers, are onboarded through
automatic discovery when the servers begin posting events to the repository (ER). You do not need to
configure IBM Control Center
Monitor before the
servers post events.
