Creating a deployable package

As an administrator, you can select monitor installation components, such as the PATROL Agent and monitoring solutions to create a deployable package. The components can then be installed together using the deployable package. You can reuse the deployable packages, or deploy the packages to multiple computers.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you have imported the KM.
  • Ensure that you have reviewed the  Deployable packages best practices .

To create a deployable package

  1. Log on to the TrueSight console. In the navigation pane, expand Administration, select Repository, and select the Deployable Packages tab.

  2. ClickCreate Deployable Package.
    The Create Deployable Package wizard starts.

  3. On the Installation Package Solution Selection page, select the operating system for which you want to create a package, and then select a platform on which you want to install the package.
    The list of components in the repository that are supported on the specified operating system and platform is displayed.
  4. Select the components that you want to include in the package.

  5. From the Version list, select the version of the component that you want to include in the package.
    You can select a specific version or you can select latest, which automatically updates the package with the latest versions of the components when new versions of those components are added to the Infrastructure Management repository.

    Important

    To be able to deploy packages from the TrueSight console, do not include PATROL Configuration Manager, PATROL Agents, or PATROL Agent patches in the deployable packages.


  6. Provide PATROL Agent related information:

    1. Specify the installation directory.
      Note that the PATROL products are installed one level below the BMC products installation directory.

      Note

      The default installation directory has changed to C:\Program Files\BMC Software and not C:\Program Files (x86)\BMC Software. If you have installed a previous version of the product, use the path specified for that installation.

    2. Specify the PATROL 3.x product directory.
      Follow the instructions in the Important Information section of the wizard.
  7. Review the deployable package details.

    If you added a monitoring solution that contains sub-components, click the plus sign to view the included sub-components.

  8. In the Installation Package Details window, enter the following information:

    • Name: The name of the deployable package. Can contain only A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and underscore (_).
    • (Optional) Description: Enter a description of the package.
      The description is displayed in the list of deployable packages.
    • Format: Select a file compression format for the installation package.
  9. Perform one of the following steps:

    • To save the package for future installation on the current host or other hosts, click Save.

    • To save the package and download it immediately, click Save and Download.

    A template of the package is saved to the installationDirectory\truesightpserver\data\pproxy\installer_templates folder and is listed in the Deployable Packages tab.

     


Where to go from here

After creating deployable packages, deploy them to PATROL Agents. For more information, see Deploying packages to PATROL Agents.
