About Veritas Cluster Server agents

Veritas agents provide high availability for specific resources and applications. Each agent manages resources of a particular type. For example, the Oracle agent manages Oracle databases. Typically, agents start, stop, and monitor resources and report state changes.

Before you install VCS agents, review the configuration guide for the agent.

In addition to the agents that are provided in this release, other agents are available through an independent Symantec offering called the Veritas Cluster Server Agent Pack. The agent pack includes the currently shipping agents and is re-released quarterly to add the new agents that are now under development.

Contact your Symantec sales representative for the following details:

  • Agents that are included in the agent pack

  • Agents under development

  • Agents available through Symantec Consulting Services

You can download the latest agents from the Symantec Operations Readiness Tools website:
