Monitor Availability of Solution Manager 7.1
We use Solution Manager heavily to monitor all of our SAP Systems. We have configured Self-monitoring which alerts us of any issues with Solution Manager. However, we want to get alerted if Solution Manager goes down. Our Solution Manager is configured as a managed system to itself. How can we setup availability monitoring for our Solution Manager system? We have a non-prod Solution Manager system. Do we use that?
The 2nd install of a SMD agent will detect the 1st agent, but as long as another instance number and SID are used it shouldn't be an issue.
Hostctrl however is a different story as by default it installs the same location every time; modifying the folder structure and services may be required if you need both operational in each Solman system. Not 100% sure if this is possible as I haven't had a reason to modify this particular set of services.
