You should consider where MIMIX Monitor could help you in meeting your availability management requirements. Because MIMIX Monitor is typically used within a MIMIX installation, much of your planning and preparation should be considered in the context of your total MIMIX environment.

Do the following to prepare to use MIMIX Monitor:

  1. If you have not already done so, install and configure your Assure MIMIX Enterprise, Assure MIMIX Enterprise, or Assure MIMIX DR environment.

  2. MIMIX Monitor uses the MIMIXOWN profile that is shipped with authority to all objects. To protect your systems from misuse, implement additional security processes based on the information in Security considerations.

  3. If you have not already done so, turn on product-level security and grant authority to user profiles to control access to the MIMIX products. The License Manager for IBM i Products book documents these tasks.

  4. If you are updating an existing version 10.0 installation of MIMIX, review any critical monitors and verify that their status is correct.

  5. Ensure that any system definitions and transfer definitions you will need for a monitor are configured for the MIMIX replication environment. Refer to the Assure MIMIX Administrator Reference book.

  6. If it is not already active, start the MIMIX subsystem using Starting the MIMIXSBS subsystem.

  7. If you plan to use the switching support within MIMIX Monitor, use topic Preparing for a switch to guide you in preparing the systems for switching, creating a switch definition and an event program, and reviewing and testing your switching procedures.

  8. Create any monitors you need that are not shipped with MIMIX. If you need user-defined monitors, you need to create monitors and the programs called by each monitor. For more information refer to Working with monitors and Programming for monitors.
