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.

Starting the Application Server Administration console

To start the Application Server Administration console, run the blasadmin utility. How you start the utility depends whether you want to configure the default Application Server or one of multiple Application Servers on the host.

Before you begin

If you have recently upgraded BMC Server Automation, restart all application server deployments before invoking the blasadmin utility for the first time after the upgrade.

To start the utility for the default Application Server

To start the Application Server Administration console when there is a single Application Server on the host, do one of the following:

  • (Windows) Do one of the following (both options run the same command):

    • From the Start menu, select Programs > BMC Software > BladeLogic Server Automation Suite > Utilities > Application Server Administration.
    • From the directory where BMC Server Automation is installed, enter the following:
      \bin\blasadmin.exe
  • (UNIX) From the directory where BMC Server Automation is installed, enter the following:
    .<installdirectory>/appserver/NSH/br/blasadmin
    This command starts the blasadmin utility.

    Note

    All commands you enter during the session affect only the default Application Server. Application Servers created on the host in the future do not have those changes. To have changes affect future Application Servers, use this command to start the blasadmin utility and configure the _template deployment: blasadmin -s _template
    For information about the default and _template deployments, see Managing multiple Application Servers on the same host.

To start the utility with multiple Application Servers on the same host

If there are multiple Application Servers on the same host, you must specify whether you want to use the utility to configure one specific Application Server or all Application Servers on the host. The blasadmin setting only applies to Application Server instances that run JOB services (JOB or ALL). It does not applies to instances running CONFIG or NSH_PROXY services.

Do one of the following:

  • To start the utility and configure one specific Application Server, use:
    blasadmin -s <appServerName>
    where:
    -s <appServerName> is the Application Server name.
    For example:
    blasadmin -s OtherJobServer
    This command starts the blasadmin utility and enables you to enter commands. All commands you enter during the session (until you enter exit at the blasadmin prompt) affect only the Application Server you specified.
  • To start the utility and configure all Application Servers on the host, use:
    blasadmin -a
    This command starts the utility and enables you to enter set and showcommands. All commands you enter during the session affect:

Note

The -a option does not affect _pxe, _spawner, and _launcher. Use the -s option to explicitly specify these instances.
