For just a few systems you can probably just enter them as you go: [Edit --> Create Object|http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-5417/6n7gj8249?l=en&a=view]
My problem is when I start the console on the server (machine #1) it still only sees itself not the
second machine. I have looked through all the doc's that I have and there is nothing really on
setting this up?
For larger installs many people also script the creation of icons using the SunMC CLI to make their life easier. If you're interested send me an email and I can point you to a sample script.
Congrats on starting to use SunMC, it's a fantastic tool!
Thanks! That points me in the right direction, quick question though when you set them up do you use "SNMP Ping" selection when you create the objects for your Sun machines? It's the default just haven't gotten everything down yet. I'm printing out all 440 pages to read :)
ITs not answered posted a more precise posting...
This seems to be a strange creature to setup :( .... I have made sure all the "keys" are the same, made sure the SMC port or more specific the SNMP port is 11161, community name is "public" just to make sure that all 3 machines are on the same page. On my test suite I can get it to work and on my production suite I can only get the server to see the server adding a new AGENT object in the console I get bad port or hostname? Anyone else have this issue when wanting to run one, my setup is as follows....
Server/Console/Agent Combo (1 Server)
Agent (only) (2 Agent only boxes) to be added to the server to be visible....

You can try using IP address only rather than the hostname. Also, try unqualified Domain Names as well when trying to create the object. Also, make sure agent is running on the machines use ps-ef | grep esd. You can also modify the domain x file on your agents and vi it and change hostname of the server to IP address.
I hope this helps
