I want to know which is the best way to deploy monitoring probes to the devices in UIM. I am new to CA UIM & we have a complex HA environment where we have Primary Hubs in HA monitoring devices in one DC & two Secondary Hubs in HA monitoring devices in other DC. i have heard of new feature called MCS (Monitoring Configuration Services) ,where u can configure monitoring parameters from UMP Portal itself. So MCS pushes down those respective probes to the servers ?So can i use MCS to configure the parameters in my scenario or configure & push probes from IM or Admin Console ? Does MCS work in case my Primary HUB is down & HA Primary Hub is up or similar scenario for Secondary Hub ?
You should be able to use MCS in a multi tenant environment , it sure would be a better way if you have a standardised configuration for all device monitoring . You can group the devices in USM and apply the configuration as a template using MCS . Also you wouldn't need to access AC or IM , the config can be pushed from USM directly
