Configuring the WS_FTP server to use the FTP agent
To enable the WS_FTP server to communicate with the IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor FTP Agent, you must configure the WS_FTP server to execute the IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor batch file, notifySCC.bat, when it performs actions on files, such as uploading, downloading, and deleting.
To configure WS_FTP, you set up and name a Folder Action Rule, such as SCCWsFtpAgent, and specify more information for that Folder Action Rule to tell it how it is going to work with IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor.
If you have a high availability environment, you must configure the WS_FTP to send traps to the active event processor. This event processor might be the controller event processor. If the active event processor fails, you must reconfigure the server to send traps to the new controller event processor. You lose traps if you do not reconfigure the server.
- To send notifications for all actions that the WS_FTP performs on files, select all FTP events that you want IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor to monitor in the Rules Notifications section. For example, Upload, Download, or Delete.
- To instruct the WS_FTP server to execute the IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor notifySCC.bat batch file when it sends a notification, browse to the notifySCC.bat file in the directory where the IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor FTP Agent is installed, and select for the Executable.
- To pass the parameters IBM Sterling Control Center
