BSM environment recommendations

This topic provides information about the environments in which you should install BMC Atrium Orchestrator as certified by the BSM Reference Stack and BSM Interoperability programs. These programs provide information about validated use cases involving multiple BMC products and the third-party products that support them. BMC recommends that you install software versions that have been validated to work together by these programs, but the stacks validated by the programs do not represent the only possible combinations of products. For complete compatibility information about BMC Atrium Orchestrator 7.6.02, see Product Availability and Compatibility (requires Support login).

BSM Interoperability

The BSM Interoperability program helps you install compatible versions of BMC products together by testing an application stack of specific releases and verifying that they work together to perform key use cases. BMC Atrium Orchestrator version 7.6.02 SP2 was certified with BSM Interoperability 8.6.

This section lists the products and applications tested in BSM Interoperability 8.6. For more information such as a certified installation order, see the documentation for that release.
