Generating a user information file

Use this procedure to generate a user information file, which caches your BMC Server Automation user ID and password. This file can be used as a keytab file for authentication, and is especially useful when running unattended automation scripts that make use of Network Shell proxy services or make calls to the BLCLI. 

  1. From <installDirectory>/bin, run the command bl_gen_blcli_user_info.
    The utility prompts you to create a file name.
  2. Name the file as user_info.dat.
  3. When prompted, enter your BMC Server Automation user name (such as BLAdmin) and password.
