Symantec Cluster Server provides you with an interface, the Symantec High Availability tab, to configure and control application monitoring. The Symantec High Availability tab is integrated with the VMware vSphere Client.
You can administer application monitoring in two ways. One, using the Symantec High Availability tab as described below, and two, using the Symantec High Availability dashboard. Using the Symantec High Availability dashboard, you can administer application monitoring for multiple applications on multiple systems in a data center. For more information on the later:
Use the Symantec High Availability tab to perform the following tasks:
To configure and unconfigure application monitoring
To unconfigure the VCS cluster
To start and stop configured applications
To add and remove failover systems
To enter and exit maintenance mode
To switch an application
To determine the state of an application (components)
To resolve a held-up operation
To modify application monitoring settings
To view application dependency
To view component dependency
To view the Symantec High Availability tab, launch the VMware vSphere Client, select a system from the inventory and then click thetab.
If you have not configured single sign-on for the system, specify the user credentials of a user that has administrative privileges on the system.
You can also perform the application monitoring operations directly from a browser window using the following URL: https://<VMNameorIP>:5634/vcs/admin/application_health.html?priv=ADMIN where <VMNameorIP> is the virtual machine name or the IP address of the system from where you want to access the tab.
A prompt for user account details will be displayed. You must enter the system user account details.
