Importing the Repository

The Infrastructure Management–PATROL Repository (Repository) includes the current versions of the PATROL Monitoring Solutions that you can use with Infrastructure Management. For details about the contents of the repository files, see Monitoring Solutions and KMs.

To import the full Repository with predefined packages and policies

Tip

Choose this option to get started with commonly used packages and policies that are created automatically for you.

  1. Log on to the TrueSight console. In the navigation pane, expand Administration, select Repository, and select the Installation Components tab.
  2. ClickImport.
  3. In the Import a Repository or Solution dialog box, select Full repository with Predefined Packages and Policies and click Continue.
  4. Browse and select the repository file from the Presentation Server file system, and click Import.

    Note

    You can import predefined packages and policies only from the Infrastructure Management PATROL base repository version 10.5.00 or later. The extended repository does not contain predefined packages and policies.

  5. Provide the following information or accept the default information. All fields are mandatory.
    1. BMC Software Products Installation Directory
      Specify the installation directory. Note that the BMC PATROL products are installed one level below the BMC products installation directory.
    2. PATROL Default Account Properties
      Provide the PATROL default account credentials. You must create this account manually before continuing with the installation. If you plan to use a domain account, enter DOMAIN_NAME\account name; otherwise, enter the local account.
    3. System Root (or root privileged via sudo) Account Properties
      For UNIX operating systems, provide the System Root account details.
    4. Integration Service Configuration
      The Integration Service variable is used for automatic registration of the PATROL Agent with Infrastructure Management.
      Enter the Integration Services to connect to. Use the format Protocol:Integration Service Hostname:PortNumber. For example tcp:IS1:3183, where 3183 is the port on which the Integration Service host listens for an incoming PATROL Agent auto-registration connection.

      Tip

      By default, this field lists the first non-staging Integration Service in the BmcRealm tenant. If this condition does not apply, the first non-staging Integration Service across all tenants is listed.

    5. Predefined Policies
      If there are existing policies with the same name, you can choose to overwrite them or not.

The selected archive file is imported to the repository and extracted. You can close the window during the import process.

The predefined packages are created at Administration > Repository > Deployable Packages tab. You can delete predefined packages but cannot edit them.

Note

Since predefined packages include the PATROL Agent, you have to manually deploy the packages and not through the TrueSight console.


The predefined policies are created at Configuration > Infrastructure Policies. By default, the predefined policies are enabled with a precedence in the 900 range.
