The following error was found in the /opt/CA/IMDataCollector/broker/apache-activemq-5.15.2/data/activeme.log file:

In the activemq.xml file:

		    <networkConnector name="da_manager" uri="static:(tcp://10.xx.yy.116 10.xx.yy.117:61616)" duplex="true" 

This is not the correct syntax for FT DAs in DC AMQ xml file.

Both DA IPs were supplied in the first field:

The DC installer asks for 1 IP, then asks if FT DA, and then will prompt for 2nd DA IP.


Release : 21.2

Component : PM Data Aggregator



1) export DCM_ID=<dcmid>
2) uninstall DC
3) install DC.
 a) it will ask for first DA IP, enter it.
 b) it will ask if FT DA, say yes
 c) it will ask for second DA IP, enter it.

Get dcmid from DCs page, or apache-karaf/etc/  collector-manager-id=<dcmid>

The DC successfully connected to the DA.
