DTA has a remote console whereas for ManageX you have to perform a second installation (and have an extra license). If you just want to see the incoming events in ManageX, you can use the web event browser (read-only, no action can be taken)

Re: ManageX and Desktop Administrator 5.0 Remote Console

Hi Kurt, thanks for your answer. The situation is like this: there is only one production server, so can we have a remote console, say on two other nt workstation. So there is no necessity to work at the server, can that be implemented with openview?

Re: ManageX and Desktop Administrator 5.0 Remote Console

It is certainly possible. For DTA you just install the remote console (Installing an additional console - page 136 Administrators guide DTA). For ManageX, you will need extra licenses. If you specify in the system route tables both MX consoles, all messages will be send to them.

Why don't you just take the server remotely over, eg with pcAnywhere or VNC. It will be probably cheaper.

Re: ManageX and Desktop Administrator 5.0 Remote Console

Hi,

If you are managing the production server with ManageX, then there is no need to get two licenses for ManageX. You can just install the console on your remote workstation and simply deploy the policies to the production server. The trick is not to install the console at the production server. If you do then you will need to have two licenses. I agree with Kurt, you can use pcAnywhere or other remote control products to manage these apps from anywhere in the network.

Thank you,

Antonio Borges

Antonio

Re: ManageX and Desktop Administrator 5.0 Remote Console

Hi, Thanks for both helps. If we use pcANYWHERE then only one person can take control at one time. What if we need to have three ppl monitirng the production server at one time? Thanks so much.

Re: ManageX and Desktop Administrator 5.0 Remote Console

If those people just need to monitor th events, you can use the web event browser for that reason. If those people need to be able to take actions from ManageX, , then you need different consoles.
