CDP worksheet for upgrades from 7.6.03

You can upgrade the configuration distribution peer (CDP) after you upgrade or install the repository. If you are using an external Remedy Single Sign-On instance, it must already be installed. 

You can upgrade the optional BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel (OCP), with the CDP. To upgrade  the OCP with the CDP, use the Operator Control Panel worksheet for upgrades from 7.6.03 worksheet with the CDP upgrade worksheet.

Note

If you are installing a non-English version of the Operator Control Panel,  you must install it separately from the CDP. You must install the non-English OCP and CDP on separate Tomcat servers.

If you choose to modify any settings during the CDP upgrade, use this worksheet to record the new settings. The upgrade parameters in the table correspond to the parameters in the GUI upgrade panels and the options file.

Fully qualified domain name of the host where the repository is installed.

Admin Password

Password required to log on to the repository.

Repository HA Address

Provide the repository IP address and port for communication with the enterprise service bus. Use the following format:

<IPaddress>:<port>

On a machine that has multiple network interface cards (NICs) this must be the IP address that allows access from the CDP and/or the HA-CDP.

The default port is the repository web port plus 10. For example, if the repository port is 28080, the Repository HA address is 28090.

Notes

  • This entry is required for installations/upgrades with embedded RSSO installations. This is not applicable if you are using external RSSO on the CDP.
  • Often multiple IP addresses are detected by the installer (on a machine that has multiple NICs). Verify the default address and port number and replace them if required.
