Provision Servers for Automation

Ops Manager can automate operations for the MongoDB processes running on your hosts. Ops Manager can both discover existing processes and deploy new ones.

Ops Manager Automation relies on an Automation Agent, which must be installed on every server that runs a monitored MongoDB deployment. The Automation Agents periodically poll Ops Manager to determine the goal configuration, deploy changes as needed, and report deployment status back to Ops Manager.

Install the MongoDB Agent on each host that you want Ops Manager to manage. The following procedure applies to all operating systems.

Instructions for a specific operating system can be read on Install MongoDB Agent.

On Linux hosts, if you installed MongoDB with a package manager, use the same package manager to install the MongoDB Agent. If you installed MongoDB without a package manager, use an archive to install the MongoDB Agent.

Once you have installed the MongoDB Agent to all your hosts, you can deploy your first replica set, cluster, or standalone.
