Manually assigning monitored servers to an event processor
By default, the controller event processor assigns newly added monitored servers to the event processor with the least number of assigned servers. You can change this default assignment by manually assigning a different event processor for a server. When you assign a server to a different event processor, the currently assigned event processor completes any activity before the server is reassigned to its new event processor.
If an event processor stops, then IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor by default temporarily reassigns its servers with equal distribution to the available event processors. IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor returns the servers to the event processor when it becomes active again. If you prefer that the servers are assigned to a specific event processor, you can manually reassign these servers in the Servers tab. You must be an IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor administrator to complete this task.
To reassign monitored servers to a different event processor:
- In the web console, click .
- In the navigation pane, select an event processor, then click the Servers tab.
- Drag a server from the Servers tab to a different event processor in the navigation pane.
For a manually reassigned server, an audit log entry is created that displays the current and previous values for the assigned event processor of the server. When you manually assign a server to an event processor, the rules with the message ID CNCD032E "Server Updated, ID: serverID, by: userID" are triggered.
