VCS provides agents that manage applications and resources in a cluster.
The different types of agents follow:
VCS comes packaged (bundled) with a set of agents that enable VCS to provide high availability. These include agents for mount points, IP addresses, file systems, VVR, and virtual environments. These agents are immediately available to you after installing VCS.
For more information about VCS bundled agents, refer to the Symantec Cluster Server Bundled Agents Reference Guide.
Agents are processes that manage predefined resource types. When an agent is started, it obtains configuration information from VCS. It then periodically monitors the resources and updates VCS with the resource status.
