Bundling snapshot results into a BLPackage

When viewing snapshot results, you can bundle them into a BLPackage.

When a snapshot contains multiple server object types, you can choose the contents you want to bundle by selecting individual server objects, a node representing a server object type, or multiple nodes.

To bundle snapshot results into a BLPackage

  1. Use the Jobs folder to display the results of a snapshot, as described in Snapshot and change tracking results.
  2. Expand the results of a job run.
  3. Expand the Server View node and do one of the following:
    • Bundle the contents of a server object type by selecting the node representing that type of server object. Then, right-click and select Add to Depot as > BLPackage. A wizard for bundling snapshot results appears. Proceed to step 4.
    • Select individual server objects by expanding the node for a server object type and selecting individual server objects in the table on the right. Then, right-click and select Add to Depot as > BLPackage. A wizard for bundling snapshot results appears. Proceed to step 4.
    • Bundle the contents in a snapshot for an entire server by selecting the node representing that server. Then, right-click and select Add to Depot as > BLPackage. The Create BLPackage wizard opens. Use it to create a BLPackage based on the server objects included in the snapshot. See Adding a BLPackage to the Depot.
  4. If the package includes software that does not match software stored in the depot, the Install Software - Select Matching Software window appears. Use it to match software in the depot with software in the package you are bundling. See Matching software with depot items.
  5. Provide information for the wizard, as described in the following sections:
  6. After completing the last step of the wizard, click Finish.
