Hi,

 

I have to install multiple database agent for on-premise controller.

Could you please provide the steps to update the hostname for each database agent which will reflect while selection, ' Add Database Collector'

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Vijay.

Did you ever resolve installing the agent multiple times 

I have to add a second instance of the agent and do not want to stand up another server.

Hi Guys

 

All you have to do is to set the following 2 parameters in your startup arguments

From the Controller's perspective it will think the 2 Database Agents are running from 2 different servers.

 

-Ddbagent.name=<db_agent_name>

-Dappdynamics.agent.uniqueHostId=<uniquehostid>

 

The documentation states this

I have been working on this and several projects. 

Finally downloaded the latest database agent and it worked this time.

 

I was doing everything right but it was not working due to the agent was an older version.
