Prerequisites for Adding Data Collectors (IBM XIV)
Identify a server where the Data Collector software will be installed.
64-bit OS. See the APTARE IT Analytics Certified Configurations Guide for supported operating systems.
Support Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 10.0.2.
For performance reasons, do not install Data Collectors on the same server as the APTARE IT Analytics Portal. However, if you must have both on the same server, verify that the Portal and Data Collector software do not reside in the same directory.
Install only one Data Collector on a server (or OS instance).
XCLI must be installed on the Data Collector server.
On the Data Collector server, add entries to the local hosts file, both resolving to the Portal server IP address.
Example: aptareportal.<yourdomain>.com aptareagent.<yourdomain>.com
