Deployable actions and attributes for UNIX objects

When server objects are packaged and deployed, BMC Server Automation can usually roll back those deployments. However, the actions and attributes that you can deploy for UNIX objects cannot be undone because BMC Server Automation cannot always know the object's original state.

The following table lists the deployable actions and attributes possible with UNIX objects.


If you attempt to undo a deployment that includes actions or attributes for any of the UNIX objects in the table below, the undo succeeds for all items that can be undone but the actions and attributes for the UNIX objects are not undone.
