There may come a time when you want to forward alerts from remote IBMi's to an Enterprise Console through a Central IBMi, using the Central IBMi as a proxy.
In this example, we will use the following:
To achieve this, you will need to set up/amend the following:
On the Central IBMi, define/amend a remote location for the Enterprise Console:
On the remote server(s), define the Enterprise Console Proxy.
The Enterprise Console is going to need to know what what to do with alerts that have been forwarded by the proxy on behalf of a remote system, so we need to add an entry into the Device Manager for each of the Remote systems as follows:
Note: Always remember, when adding/changing entries in Device Manager to reload the devices into the Enterprise Console.
Launch the Enterprise Console
As the alerts are physically coming from the Central system, the Device column (1) in the Enterprise Console will always be part of the Central system, HAL720P8 in our example.
If you wish to see the actual system name, from where the alert originated, display the description column (2) instead, or as well as, the Device (this is the reason the description was amended in Device Manager earlier).
To select/deselect the columns, use the selector icon (3).
In summary, each of our Remote Servers will be forwarding its alerts to the Central iSeries using port 50018. For each of the Remote Servers, there will be a corresponding record created in Device Manager, which will use the Central iSeries as the system name, and then a unique port per Remote Server.
