Starting version 8.9.03, BMC Server Automation is renamed to TrueSight Server Automation. This space contains information about BMC Server Automation 8.9.02 and previous versions. For TrueSight Server Automation 8.9.03 and later releases, see TrueSight Server Automation 8.9.

Processing across mount points

Use this procedure to configure the Application Server so audits, compliance, snapshots, and BLPackages in BMC Server Automation can be processed across UNIX mount points and network mount points for remote file systems shared through NFS.

Note

On a Windows platform, the performance of Audit, Compliance, and Snapshot Jobs is impacted by the overall performance of the storage area network.


For example, to cross mount points, you can perform a snapshot or audit of / and processing can traverse other volumes such as /home or /usr that might reside under /. Choosing not to cross mount points can substantially increase the speed of audits, compliance, snapshots, and packaging of BLPackages. By default, processing does not cross mount points.

  1. Start the Application Server Administration console, as described in Starting the Application Server Administration console.
  2. To specify how UNIX mount points are processed, enter the following:
    set mountconfig SnpAudPkgCrossMounts true|false
    • False means that processing does not cross mount points (this is the default value).
    • True means processing of audits, compliance, snapshots, and BLPackages crosses mount points.
  3. To specify how network mount points are processed, enter the following:
    set mountconfig SnpAudPkgNetworkMounts true|false
    • False means that processing does not cross network mount points (this is the default value).
    • True means processing of audits, compliance, snapshots, and BLPackages crosses network mount points.
      To set SnpAudPkgNetworkMounts to true, the SnpAudPkgCrossMounts option must also be set to true (see step 2).
  4. Restart the Application Server.
