I have been trying on the CA Application Delivery Analysis for which i have installed the Management Console & Standard Monitor following the Installation Guide from the bookshelf
I am slightly confused as to what comes next in the process. like how do I integrate Management Console and Standard monitor as they are on different servers. After installing the ADA components, I go to start menu and find the CA folder (empty).
I have installed the CA Performance Center on a third server, so in all I have three servers
Server1 - ADA Mgmt console
Server2 - ADA Stnd Monitor
Server3 - CA Performance Center
Please let me know if I'm missing out something as i don't have a hands-on experience. Would be really helpful if someone can guide me in the right direction.
Thanks & Regards
All configuration for ADA takes place in the web GUI, so once you have it installed, you can pull it up either by going to http://localhost on the ADA master console or http://<ip_address_of_master_console>.
The very first time you do this, you will probably be prompted to choose which IP on the master console (aka management console) is the management IP. Since you have the monitor installed on separate servers, this makes your installation a distributed (vs. standalone) installation. After getting the web GUI up (which will log you in automatically if you bring it up on the localhost), you'll need to add the monitor to the master console. Just go to administration and it should give you tips to get the next few steps done.
You can also check out my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS4MCCjNy8c where I did an install in a virtual environment. I believe I did a standalone in the video, but it's not that much different than distributed.

Thanks a lot Stuart.
I was under the impression that Mgmt console & monitor on different servers was the only available scenario. Thanks for clearing that up. I am currently going through the video you posted and will update the thread once i validate my installation.
Alright, but the odd thing i noticed is that i did not get the 'Standalone Manager' option on the installer as seen in the video.
I am using the - CA Application Delivery Analysis r10.0 0000 (DVD01171713M.iso) - [ADASetup10.0.112] and i only get the options for a distributed install (ref: screenshot). I hope it is still suported on verions later than 9.3 of the product and i have just missed it somehow.
Maybe i need to do a "Distributed Manager" install and a "Single Port Monitor" install on the same server to resemble a standalone environment :)
Any ideas.... ?
