Guys I need a link to the administration/installation guide - as the only I can find are for 5.7 which are not valid for Linux DPA Collector commands....
I need to delete DPA collector from AVE and then re install it, or possibly reconfigure it as the DPA server changed.
Thank you in advance.
The DPA 6 documentation is at support.emc.com
You shouldn’t need to uninstall/reinstall the DPA Agent to point it to a new DPA Server
In the Agent install directory, typically, /opt/emc/agent/etc, there is a dpa.config file – update the DPA Server hostname in that file and restart the DPA Agent.
If you need the exact line to change in dpa.config, then let me know but it should be obvious ☺
I do not have DPA server line in the dpa.config..... here is the full file

Just checked, in DPA 6 it has changed to this file :
May also be best to remove the agent_repq.db file from /opt/emc/dpa/agent/data as well
already found that - but no good, so I re installed dpa colletor. Now agent's log is clear and no errors - dpa console however still does not display any info and does not generate reports... (actually it does but all the reports are empty)
Ok, perhaps all the pfiles needed to be deleted as it does store some parameters. As you reinstalled, the old pfiles would be deleted and start with new ones anyway ☺
As such, this would also mean that the data collection will start from the time of re-installation onwards. It does not automatically retrieve historical information.
If you have further issues, please open an SR with EMC Support.
