The installation process for agents varies by operating system. On UNIX, Linux, and IBM pSeries systems, installation is done at the command line using a script. On Windows, installation is done using a graphical utility.
All client systems must be accessible via a name. This name should exist in either the
/etc/hosts table on the Monitoring Station, or be accessible via a name server (e.g., NIS or DNS). If the host IP is changed, the Monitoring Station may send requests to the incorrect machine.
