enable agents on multiple nodes from single console/UI
Our application makes use of more than 30 aegnts. Production environment has 8 nodes. Generally the deployment window is of very short time. Imediaetly after jar import and server restart all the agents are disabled so that no processing can happen. Next we enable Migration agents to migrate cases from old release to new relese format. Once that is done we need to enable rest of the agents. This process of enabling/disabling multiple agents on multiple nodes takes long time from SMA. Is there any way a signle console can be provided for multiple agents enabling/disabling on different nodes. It will be even better if it a single console is provided for mutliple environments like UAT, PROD etc. Does AES have these capabilities?

The solution you have devised is a solution which will need frequent changes in prconfig settings. We need something more UI friendly options where in users can see a matrix kind of thing and enable/disable agents. Say for example, in the grid X axis will show nodes and Y axis will show agent names. after checking a checkbox for a particular agent on a particular node data schedule of that agent should be enabled.
There are 2 issues in this design.
1 . How to get agent status on all nodes? Is there any API already available.
2. How to disable/enable any agents schedules on user click.
@ Jon -- I did not had correct role added so I was not able to see the Agent screen under operations.After adding role PegaRULES:SysOpsAdministrator I can see it.
But with your suggestion or with Suman's suggestion to use AES we still have to keep switching from one node to another using drop down.
I think we will have to build our custom control panel starting from what is available now. So that Admins can have a single view of all agents on all nodes and can check start stop agents on multiple nodes with fewer clicks.
