Configuring the TrueSight Environment for the BMC Helix ITSM integration

This section explains each procedure to configure BMC Helix Service Resolution with TrueSight environment.

Do the following to configure the TrueSight environment for the BMC Helix Service Resolution integration:

  1. Enable the DDEN_POLICY_TEST policy by using the TrueSight console.
  2. Import certificates into the TrueSight Infrastructure Management server.
  3. Configure the BMC Helix Service Resolution integration in TrueSight Infrastructure Management.
  4. Verify the integration.

Step 1: Enabling the DDEN_POLICY_TEST policy

  1. Log in to TrueSight console.
  2. On the Administration tab, click By Policy Type, and select Dynamic Enrichment Policy.
    A list of the dynamic enrichment policies is displayed in the right pane of the Administration View.
  3. Right-click the DDEN_POLICY_TEST policy, and select Edit Policy.
  4. Select Enabled.
  5. In the Match Table section, do the following:
    1. For the Type field, select Enrichment Match Table from the drop-down list.
    2. In the Tag field, enter enrich-helix-IS.
    3. In the Data File field, browse and select the helixISMatchTableData.baroc file present in the <Infrastructure Management server Installation Directory>\pw\server\etc\<pn_cell_directory>\kb\data directory.

Step 2: Importing certificates into the TrueSight Infrastructure Management server

Do the following:

  1. Obtain the certificates from the Helix Network team or use the following URL to download them:
    The following certificates are required:

    • Name: digicert_global_root.cer
      Alias: rootCA

    • Name: digicert_sha_256.cer
      Alias: intermediateCA

    • Name: onbmc_wildcard.cer
      Alias: onbmc_wildcardCA 

    Keystore location

    The cacerts keystore is located at < TrueSight Infrastructure Management Installation Directory>/pw/jre/lib/security.

    The pnserver.ks keystore is located at TrueSight Infrastructure Management Installation Directory>/pw/pronto/conf.

  2. For TrueSight Operations Management version 11.3.02 or later, do the following:

    1. On the TrueSight Infrastructure Management server, run the following command to install the certificates in the TrueSight Infrastructure Management keystore/trustore.
      pw certificate import BSR

    2. Enter the BMC Service Resolution server details <host:port> to download the certificates.
      The port number is optional. If you do not enter the port number, the default port 443 is used.
  3. For TrueSight Operations Management version 11.3.01 or earlier, do the following:
    1. On the computer where the  TrueSight Infrastructure Management server is installed, back up the following files:

      • < TrueSight Infrastructure Management Installation Directory>/pw/jre/bin/lib/security/cacerts
      • < TrueSight Infrastructure Management Installation Directory>/pw/pronto/conf/pnserver.ks
    2. Run the following commands in the order shown below:
      1. keytool -printcert -sslserver <helix server name:port> -rfc | keytool -importcert -keystore ../lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit -noprompt -alias rootCA -file digicert_global_root.cer

      2. keytool -printcert -sslserver <helix server name:port> -rfc | keytool -importcert -keystore ../lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit -noprompt -alias intermediateCA -file digicert_sha_256.cer

      3. keytool -printcert -sslserver <helix server name:port> -rfc | keytool -importcert -keystore ../lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit -noprompt -alias onbmc_wildcard -file onbmc_wildcard.cer

      4. keytool -printcert -sslserver <helix server name:port> -rfc | keytool -importcert -keystore ../../pronto/conf/pnserver.ks -storepass get2net -noprompt -alias rootCA -file digicert_global_root.cer

      5. keytool -printcert -sslserver <helix server name:port> -rfc | keytool -importcert -keystore ../../pronto/conf/pnserver.ks -storepass get2net -noprompt -alias intermediateCA -file digicert_sha_256.cer

      6. keytool -printcert -sslserver <helix server name:port> -rfc | keytool -importcert -keystore ../../pronto/conf/pnserver.ks -storepass get2net -noprompt -alias onbmc_wildcard -file onbmc_wildcard.cer
