If the hardware's the same, it's most likely an install option that differed, somehow. Google had this:

Since CentOS isn't explicitly on the list of supported OSes, you may have to try one of the listed RHEL distributions.
I've installed a new server wirh ESRT2 with Centos 5.4 64 bit. I installed RWC2 on it. I can configure alerts.
This is a very strange issue and I don't know what is the cause for working on some systems and not in anothers.
I revised any dependency ... all is installed. Someone is suffering this too?
I am having the same problem.
I've installed version 6.90.04 of rwc2 on two identical machines running centOS 5.3, 64 bit. On one I get the "Error: One or more target component is not running." On the other, I can configure alerts with no problems.
What is going on???
It would help if I could figure out what "target component" is not running. I did both installs from the same download, one after the other.
Any help appreciated.
Problem mostly solved.
It seems that my issue was that mrmonitord needed to be running, and it was not on one of my two servers. However, diagnosis of the problem was made difficult by the fact that if I was using an rwc2 console to access multiple servers (well, 2 anyway) the first time I did "configure alerts" in an rwc2 session, it seemed to remember that particular server, so that even when I logged off the first server and onto the second one, when I did "configure alerts" again, it would pull up the alert configuration for the first server. I could tell I was definitely logged into the second server based on the "server info". If I exited rwc2 and started it again, I could then configure alerts for the second server, assuming I logged into it first.
