CAN I CONFIGURE 2 DBSNMP AGENTS TO RUN ON HPUX

Hi
I want to run 2 seperate dbsnmp agents from 2 seperate kernels on the 1 server
so that we can support HPUX service guard high availability solution.
This is where one kernel & db can failover and move to another server. When
this happens I want the dbsnmp_agent to do this also.
This architecture works ok on 8.1.7 on NT using failsafe.

Re: CAN I CONFIGURE 2 DBSNMP AGENTS TO RUN ON HPUX

Hi,

To run dbsnmp agent in a service guard cluster you need to modify the package configuration script
(/etc/cmcluster/package_name/package.cntl) and add the start/stop functions

/oracle/product/8.x.x/bin/lsnrctl dbsnmp_start
/oracle/product/8.x.x/bin/lsnrctl dbsnmp_stop

Check anyway "Managing Service Guard" to modify the configuration files.
The oracle binaries need to be in both systems (preferible in internal disks);
and you will be able to switch dbsnmp with the database in both servers.

You only need 1 dbsnmp agent running on the server that will switch to the other node with Service Guard.

I hope this help.

Re: CAN I CONFIGURE 2 DBSNMP AGENTS TO RUN ON HPUX

Hi,
i already had a dbsnmp agent running on one of the servers so thats why i cant just failover the database and start the dbsnmp.
Ive now had it confirmed from Oracle that OEM does not support a HP/ServiceGuard environment where you have db's already running on both servers involved.
