If you are wondering how to change the ITCAM Extended Agent for Oracle Database (product code: rz) clustering and positioning in the TEP navigator, this blog will give you the steps on how this can be done.

 

Step 1)  Change the agent configuration environment variable "CTIRA_HOSTNAME" to provide an alternate hostname qualifier.

 

              a)  Open the agent configuration file.
                   On Windows systems, the file path is

                   For already configured agent instance,

 

              b)  Modify the environment variable
                   CTIRA_HOSTNAME=
                   For example,
                   CTIRA_HOSTNAME='CHN'

 

              c)  Restart the agent.

 

Step 2)  Set the TEPS configuration environment variable "KFW_TOPOLOGY_CLUSTER_LIST" to change the Physical Navigation to depend on CTIRA_HOSTNAME.

 

              a)  Open TEPS configuration file
                   On Windows systems, the file path is

 

              b)  Add the environment variable "KFW_TOPOLOGY_CLUSTER_LIST", and add the dynamic affinity of ITCAM Extended Agent for Oracle Database as the value.
                   KFW_TOPOLOGY_CLUSTER_LIST=%IBM.OracleAgents %IBM.OracleAgentRDB %IBM.OracleAgentASM %IBM.OracleAgentDG
                   Note: all in one line.

 

              c)  Restart the TEPS.

 

Step 3) Check TEP navigator, CTIRA_HOSTNAME takes effect. Take CHN as example (marked in red box).
