    According to mon_config_service Key Value Reference (in theSetup Settings),

    one may configure

    automated_deployment_engine: Indicates whether automated_deployment_engine or distsrv manages the probe and package distribution in Admin Console.

     

    But I don't know where to configure what manages probe and package distribution in Admin Console...

    We prefer to use the distsrv, most because it has an API (probe utility call-backs) that we are already using, and also because it is much more lightweight than automated_deployment_engine.

     

    #distsrv

    #mon_config_service

    #adminconsoleapp

    #adminconsole

    - #automated_deployment_engine

    I have never tried this but you should be able to use raw config on  to edit the below key in mon_config_service

     

    from:

    <setup>
       loglevel = 1
       data_engine = data_engine
       automated_deployment_engine = automated_deployment_engine
       query_timeout_seconds = 300
       <utf8_supported_adapter_list>
          <rsp>

     

    to:

    <setup>
       loglevel = 1
       data_engine = data_engine
       automated_deployment_engine = distsrv
       query_timeout_seconds = 300
       <utf8_supported_adapter_list>
          <rsp>

     

    I would think you would need to cold start mon_config_service and the wasp probe on the primary to have this take affect.

    Thanks Gene,

    I can't imagine that this changes the probe management in adminconsole to distsrv, but I may be wrong...

     

    I have no problems changing the value of mon_config_service, the question was about adminconsoleapp:

      Where to configure what manages probe and package distribution in Admin Console

     

    The clue is the quote from the documentation:

     

    automated_deployment_engine: Indicates whether automated_deployment_engine or distsrv manages the probe and package distribution in Admin Console.

     

    which indicates that one may change the behavior of adminconsole, which is exactly what I like to know about...

    I have confirmed with dev this is not currently possible.
