Repository installation worksheet

The repository is a required server component that you install before any peers or other components. Before installing the repository, use this worksheet to record information specific to your system. The installation parameters in this worksheet correspond to the parameters in the GUI installation and the options file.

Note

If you are using the Remedy Single Sign-On (Remedy SSO or RSSO) external authentication service, you must have installed it before installing the repository. For more information on the required Remedy SSO version to use with this BMC Atrium Orchestrator (BAO) release, see the release-specific page for the BAO version you are installing in the Release notes and notices section (for example, if you are installing BAO version 7.9.01, check 7.9.01: Service Pack 1.

Advanced Options

Click Advanced Options to edit the following repository settings.

Service Name

BAO-REPO

If you install more than one repository on the same computer, ensure that you change the Service Name to avoid conflict.

Repository Protocol

https

Repository Host Name

Fully qualified domain name of the computer where you are installing 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.
