Opened a PMR and IBM couldn't figure it out either. The bizarre part was
no error, nothing recorded in any joblog, yet it would not start. So IBM
had me set up a system monitor and try to start it. Got an error stating
"there are no endpoint systems in the Dilgard group." Eureka!

When adding systems to the monitor I was selecting a group called Dilgard
which has no systems in it. I don't even know why I have a group set up
since we only have a single lpar system. Changed the monitor by selecting
an endpoint system and it worked.

The IBM support person was miffed that it would issue that error message
when trying to start a /System/ monitor, but not issue an error when trying
to start a /Message/ monitor.

After a short struggle, I got a message monitor set up in System i
Navigator yesterday. The idea is to monitor QSYSOPR more closely because
of an unanswered inquiry message the day before. This is my first venture
with a monitor in System i Navigator.

Now I can't seem to get the monitor to start. I right-click it and select
start. It asks me what system to apply it to (even though we only have a
single system and it's already defined within the monitor). I dutifully
add the one and only system. Then click OK and . . . it never starts.

DSPLOG shows nothing. Management Central joblog shows nothing. Joblog
for the appropriate QZRCSRVS job shows nothing.

System i 520, 7.1, current on PTFs.

Suggestions where else to look to find out why it does not start?
