Administrative tools

BMC Server Automation provides a number of tools and processes that administrators can use to improve their efficiency.



Custom commands

Custom commands allow you to perform many functions from within the BMC Server Automation Console that might otherwise require you to launch a command line interface like Network Shell or other external applications.

Repeater servers

When you deploy a BLPackage or software package, the objects being deployed are copied to a staging directory on target servers. Often this involves copying large files to many target servers. In some situations, copying these objects to a repeater server can reduce network traffic.

Routing rules

You can create routing rules to determine which Application Servers to use for job execution.

Infrastructure Management window

The Infrastructure Management window provides a way to view and manage Application Servers and other servers that support BMC Server Automation operations.

The following topics describe these tools and processes:
