Installing DataStax Agents 6.8
DataStax agents must be installed on every managed node in a cluster and are necessary to perform most of the functionality within DSE OpsCenter 6.8.
When creating a new cluster with Lifecycle Manager, the DataStax Agent is automatically installed. When adding a new cluster to manage with OpsCenter, you are given the option to automatically or manually install agents. Also see DataStax Agents Status View.
