Installing Centreon BAM on the Centreon Remote Server

The procedure for installing the Centreon BAM module on a Centreon Remote Server is the same as on a Central server, however configuration and uninstallation are different.

Configuring Centreon Broker

Configuring the Centreon BAM module on a Centreon Remote Server requires configuring the Centreon Broker from the Centreon Central Server.

To do so, you need to modify the Centreon Broker Master configuration of the Centeon Remote poller. Go to the Configuration > Pollers > Broker configuration menu and edit the remote poller configuration.

In the Output tab, select BAM - Monitoring engine (BAM) and click on Add:
