You can set up the PATROL KM for Microsoft Cluster Server to use one of the following configurations:

- External cluster-level agent
These configurations each offer advantages and disadvantages. To decide which configuration best suits your environment, see the monitoring configuration options at Installing PATROL KM for Microsoft Cluster Server.
Before you begin
Before configuring the PATROL for Microsoft Cluster Server components, you must verify that the software products are installed correctly.
To verify that you have installed the appropriate software on the appropriate computers, see Installing PATROL KM for Microsoft Cluster Server.
To configure the PATROL KM for Microsoft Cluster Server
Follow the following process to configure PATROL KM for Microsoft Cluster Server:
- From the PATROL Console, add the managed system that corresponds to your cluster by choosing Host > Add.
- From the PATROL Console, load MCS_Load.kml. For instructions on how to load KMs, see Loading the PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers KMs.
- If the KM is not already configured, Microsoft Clusters - Setup appears as the label under the MCS_Clusters application instance icon.
- From the Microsoft Clusters - Setup instance, select PATROL Admin > Maintain Account Info.
- In the Authorized Account dialog box, enter an account that is a member of the Administrators group on the local computer or cluster node. This account allows the cluster-level agent and external executables to access the cluster nodes you want to monitor. For internal cluster-level agents configurations, when requirements are met, the KM can use the PATROL agent default account.
