Configuring the discovery profile

By default, the IBM® Tivoli® Monitoring Scope sensor is not enabled. After you enable it, TADDM discovers Tivoli Monitoring endpoints and creates a scope set. The scope set contains the discovered endpoints and uses the default Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server ports 1920 and 15001. However, by default, computer system objects are not created for the Tivoli Monitoring endpoints. If you want to create computer system objects for each discovered endpoint or to use Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server ports other than the default ports, create a new Level 1 or Level 2 discovery profile for the IBM Tivoli Monitoring Scope sensor, and customize the sensor settings.

To create the discovery profile, complete the following steps:
  1. From the Discovery Management Console, click the Discovery Profiles icon.
  2. In the Discovery Profiles window, click New.
  3. In the Create New Profile window, type the profile name and description. In the Clone existing profile field, click Level 1 Discovery or Level 2 Discovery, and click OK.
  4. In the list of sensors, click ITMScopeSensor, and click New.
  5. In the Create Configuration window, type the name and description for your configuration of the ITMScopeSensor, and select the Enable Configuration check box.
  6. In the Configuration section of the Create Configuration window, to define a set of ports to look for the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server, click portList. Then double-click the Value field in the row, and type each port number value, separating each value with a comma.
  7. To configure the sensor not to use port 1920, click useDefaultPortList. Then double-click the Value field in the row, and type false.

    The default value for useDefaultPortList is true. If a port list is provided and useDefaultPortList is set to true, port 1920 is added to the list of ports to look for the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server.

  8. To create computer system objects that display in the discovered components tree during a discovery, click discoverITMEndpoints. Then double-click the Value field in the row, and type true.

    If you do not want to create computer system objects during a discovery, either do not type anything in the field, or type false.

  9. Click OK to return to the Discovery Profiles window.
  10. In the Discovery Profiles window, click Save.
