Exporting class definitions from BMC Atrium CMDB to cells

To synchronize classes from BMC Atrium CMDB to the cells, do the following on the system in which the publishing server is present:

  1. Open a command-line instance and run pclassinfo -x -o mc_sm_object.baroc.
  2. Replace the existing mc_sm_object.baroc file of the target cell in the installationDirectory/etc/cellName/kb/classes directory.
  3. Run the following command to compile the KB: 

    mccomp -n <cellname>
  4. Run the following command to reload the KB: 

    mcontrol -n <cellname> reload KB

    This documentation is incomplete. It does not indicate what to do with the file after it is created, restarting the cell, etc.
