BMC PATROL for Microsoft Cluster Server 1.9 is not the latest version. The latest version is merged with the BMC PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers 5.0 KM as a component. To continue using it, import the BMC PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers 5.0. For more information, see BMC PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers 5.0.

Directory path and variableDescriptionValuesDefault
/MCS/
AccountInfoStores the Cluster account informationusername / encrypted passwordNA
ClaInsideClusterIndicates whether the cluster level agent can run on a cluster node.0, 11
DisableServiceAutoRestartIndicates whether the McsService is automatically started and stopped by the KM.0, 10
DisableParmOverridesIndicates whether the MCS_Clusters parameters, McsGwConAvailable, McsGatewayStatus, and McsServiceStatus, are automatically activated and inactivated by the KM.0, 10
PingIpTimeoutSpecifies the amount of time the KM waits before timing out when pinging an IP resource.Integer > 05000
ServiceCollWaitTimeSpecifies the amount of time in seconds that the McsServiceStatus parameter waits for the McsService to start before generating an alarm.Integer > 0 but =< 30060
applicationClass _ AnnotationMode

Stores the annotation mode setting for the following application classes:

  • MCS_Groups
  • MCS_Group_Resources
  • MCS_Nodes
  • MCS_Performance

The annotation mode is set through the PATROL Admin > Configure Annotation Mode menu command.

On, Off, or ErrorNA
clusterInstance _ CluDBBackupPath

stores backup path for the Cluster database. The path is not set by default, and therefore the BackupClusterDatabase parameter is offline.

The path is set through the Quorum Admin (MCS_Quorum) > Set Backup Path menu command.

Directory pathNA
clusterInstance _FileShareExclusionList

Stores excluded file shares. If a file share has been excluded, then it will not be monitored by the FileShareUnAvailable parameter.

Excluded file shares are displayed in the Desktop tree and data is collected from them by the ResourceStatus parameter.

You can exclude file shares through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Groups) > Maintain Exclusion List > Exclude File Shares menu command.

Llist of file sharesNA
clusterInstance _ IPExclusionList

Stores excluded IP addresses If an IP address has been excluded, then it will not be monitored by the CheckIPResourceColl parameter.

Excluded IP addresses are displayed in the Desktop tree and data is collected from them by the ResourceStatus parameter.

You can exclude IP addresses through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Groups) > Maintain Exclusion List > Exclude IP Address menu command.

List of IP addressesNA
clusterInstance _ResourceExclusionList

Stores excluded resources. If a resource has been excluded, then the resource is not monitored and an instance is not created.

You can exclude resources through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Groups) > Maintain Exclusion List > Exclude Resources menu command.

List of resourcesNA
clusterInstance _UpTimeBaseLine

Stores the start date and time for the ClusterAvailability parameter.

You can set the start date and time through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Cluster) > Set Available Start Date menu command.

Time in secondsNA
clusterName_NetworkNameForFileShares

Determine whether a network name has been designated for the file share resources of the cluster. If a name has been entered in the /MCS/clusterName_NetworkNameForFileShares variable, the KM attempts to map the file shares using that network name.

The FileShareUnAvailable parameter has been modified to read this pconfig variable. You can provide the network name for the file shares through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Group) > Assign Network Name menu command. Enter the network name in the dialog box. The network name is stored in the variable, /MCS/clusterName_NetworkNameForFileShares.

  • The name of a network
  • Null (the KM maps the file share resources to a default network)
 
DomainInclusionList

Stores the domain name being monitored. To monitor an additional domain, you must add a variable to the agent configuration database. Before loading and configuring the KM, verify that the domain with the cluster nodes trusts the domain with the cluster-level agent. Adding a domain:

  1. Create a change file as a plain text file using any text editor with the following content:Note: wpconfig command options are case sensitive.
    “/MCS/DomainInclusionList” = { REPLACE = “DomainName” }
  2. Execute on the command line: wpconfig +Reload your-filename.
Domain nameNA
hostName _LogMonKeyAlarm

Stores keywords that the KM searches for in the cluster log file.

If any of the keywords are found, the ClusterLogFileError parameter sends an alarm. Define the keywords through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Nodes) > Maintain Keywords menu command.

By default, no keywords are defined, and the parameter is offline.

List of keywordsNA
hostName _LogMonKeyDate

Stores the date from which the KM searches for defined keywords in the cluster log file.

If any of the keywords are found, the ClusterLogFileError parameter sends an alarm or warning. Define the date and keywords through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Nodes) > Maintain Keywords menu command.

By default, no date or keywords are defined, and the parameter is offline.

Time in secondsNA
hostName _LogMonKeyWarn

Stores keywords that the KM searches for in the cluster log file.

If any of the keywords are found, the ClusterLogFileError parameter sends a warning. Define the keywords through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Nodes) > Maintain Keywords menu command.

By default, no keywords are defined, and the parameter is offline.

List of keywordsNA
MenuCmdROMode

Stores the read-only setting for the Cluster Admin Commands.

Change the read-only setting through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Clusters) > Configure Menu Cmd RO Mode menu command.

Read-only is disabled by default.

True, FalseNA
MonitoredClusterList

Stores the clusters you are monitoring.

Change the list through the PATROL Admin (MCS_Clusters) > Select Cluster to Monitor menu command.

List of clustersNA
UptimeCollWaitTimeSpecifies in seconds the amount of time that the Uptime Collector spends waiting for the PATROL Uptime resource to send data.Number >0300
