Do I need to set the server alias for a monitored z/OS application server instance?

Technote (FAQ)


I am configuring the Monitoring Agent for a z/OS application server instance. Do I need to set the server alias?


By default, the Tivoli Enterprise Portal node name for an application server instance is made of the server name followed by the profile name. It is truncated to 18 characters.
If the first 18 characters of the server name plus profile name are not unique for an application server instance, that is, if another application server instance has the same Portal node name, you must set a server alias for one of the instances.

To set the server alias, in the file config_home/runtime/appserver_version.node_name.server_name/, uncomment and set the property to the required alias.
