Host groups and Solaris - Is this possible?

99% sure I know the answer to this and its ugly, but looking to confirm. Is it possible to set host groups on Solaris? Thanks!

So I asked Dynatrace and the response is....

"Host Groups in Solaris is not currently possible. It's definitely something on our team's radar, but I have no ETA of it coming or not."

Is there anyone from Dynatrace who can comment when this will be available?

@Dynatrace - Is this still on your radar? If so, is there an ETA?

There is no public ETA at this time. Perhaps you can explore using tags and/or management zones to satisfy the use case.

Well looking at this https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/setup-and-... and trying to locate any sign of oneagentutil on the Solaris servers is leading me to believe that it is not supported.

In fact, everything I have found around host groups in terms of docs does not point to Solaris at all.

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/how-to-use-dynatrace/hosts/configuration/organize-your-environment-using-host-groups/

Unfortunately the docs do not specifically call it out either way that I can find anyway.

Although Host Groups are not possible on Solaris, there is the possibility to use DT_CUSTOM_PROP to separate process groups:

While I can not answer for Dynatrace, I would really not expect to see enhancements of any kind around Solaris. It's a dead OS for the most part so I can't exactly blame them. I would not invest in Solaris either at this point.

Dear All,

Do we have any further updates on this topic?

Especially, host groups configuration via the command-line interface.

Regards,

Babar
