Stand-alone ITCAM ISM

Technote (FAQ)


You want to install ITCAM ISM alone.


You can install ITCAM ISM alone without TEMS, TEP, or DB2 and still forward events to Netcool/Omnibus. You will need to use ISMBatch the manage the profiles.
General Steps:

- Install the Internet Service Monitoring package only.

- Load MTEMS (Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Services). Right Click on the "ITCAM for Transaction: Internet Service Monitoring Service" and then click on Configure.

After you click Configure, you will be presented with the Internet Service Monitoring Configuration window, where you can provide the connection details for the configured ObjectServer.

- Use ISMBatch to manage the profiles.
