Installing

This section provides information about installing the BMC Atrium Orchestrator platform and content.

Note

If your BMC Atrium Orchestrator environment will use HTTPS, ensure that your environment supports TLS secure transport protocol before installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform.

Installation process checklist

This topic describes a typical BMC Atrium Orchestrator installation and the order in which you must install the components. You can use the installation checklist in this section to keep track of your progress.

Regardless of whether you use the GUI installation or the silent installation, you must install the BMC Atrium Orchestrator components in the order shown in Component installation checklist.

Warning

When installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator components on a UNIX computer, ensure that the installation path does not contain a back slash ('\'). 

To install and configure BMC Atrium Orchestrator for a high-availability environment, see Installing a CDP as an HA-CDP.

To install and configure BMC Atrium Orchestrator with Remedy Single Sign-On high-availability clusters, see Installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform with Remedy Single Sign-On high availability clusters

Component installation checklist

Step

Component

Description

1.

External Remedy Single Sign-On (optional)


If you are using an external Remedy Single Sign-On (Remedy SSO or RSSO) authentication system, you must have installed it before installing the repository. For more information, see Perform Remedy Single Sign-On installation .

The external Remedy SSO system must be up and running before you install any BMC Atrium Orchestrator components.

2.

Repository

If you are using an external Remedy Single Sign-On authentication system, it must be installed and running before installing the repository.

3.

Configuration Distribution Peer (CDP)

  • Install the CDP after you have successfully installed the repository.
  • You can install the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel application with the CDP.
  • The CDP installation program requires the repository be up and running (and if you are using an external Remedy Single Sign-On authentication system it must be running).
  • After installing the primary CDP, the Default group has full access to the repository and to the grid, just as the AoAdmin group. Edit the Default group to remove the following permissions: Development Studio, Grid Administration, and Grid Management.

4.

Additional peers:

  • High-availability configuration distribution peer (HA-CDP)
  • Activity peer (AP)
  • Lightweight activity peer (LAP)

Important

Before you install any additional peers, you must use Grid Manager to add the peer to the grid.

The HA-CDP installation program requires the CDP and repository to be up and running (and if you are using an external Remedy Single Sign-On authentication system it must be running).

5.Dashboard

Install the Health and Value Dashboard component any time after you complete step 3 and configure the CDP.

You must configure the BMC Atrium Orchestrator environment to work with the dashboards after installing them.

For information about installing the dashboard component, see Installing the Dashboards.

6.Operator Control Panel (OCP)

If you did not install the OCP with the CDP, install the OCP any time after you complete step 3 and configure the CDP.

7.

BMC Atrium Orchestrator Content, which includes adapters, modules, and run books

Content includes adapters, modules, and run books.

You can perform this step any time after you complete step 3.

For more information about installing content, see Installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator Content.

8.

BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio

BMC recommends that you install BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio after you install the CDP and content. While you can install Development Studio without installing the CDP and content, to use content in Development Studio, you must connect Development Studio to the grid where you have installed the content.
9.Post-installation configurationAfter installing the components, ensure that you complete procedures in Configuring after installation. You must set up the fail-safe configuration for the service bus and any other procedures in that section that apply to your setup.
