Creating a property instance in TrueSight Server Automation

After you push the packages from the repository into TrueSight Server Automation, you use the Property Dictionary in TrueSight Server Automation to create a property instance. You add the property instance to a deployment job. The values entered in the property instance are used to install and configure the component packages on the remote computers. 

To create a property instance in the TrueSight Server Automation

  1. Launch the TrueSight Server Automation Console.
  2.  From the Configuration menu, choose Property Dictionary View
    The Property Dictionary opens in the TrueSight Server Automation Console.
  3. Click the Property Dictionary tab. 

  4. In the Property Dictionary view, expand the Property Dictionary folder until the PATROL Configuration folder is displayed, and select Installation under that folder. 

  5. Select the Instances tab. 

  6. In the Instances tab, select either a UNIX or Windows instance, right-click, and choose Duplicate
    An additional instance is displayed with "Copy of" added to the beginning of the instance name.

  7. Select the Copy of instance, right-click, and choose Edit
    The Modify Instance dialog box is displayed. 

  8. In the Modify Instance dialog box, perform the following steps:

    1. Enter a unique name for the new instance.

    2. (Optional) Enter a description for the new instance.

    3. Click the value for the AGENT_PORT variable and enter the port number that the PATROL Agent uses.

      Note

      If you are using the default value for the PATROL Agent port number, then you do not need to change this value.

       

    4. Click the value for the PATROL_BASE_DIR variable, and enter the base directory where you want PATROL to be installed.
       

      Note

      If the computer on which you are installing the package already has a PATROL installation, the directory you enter for this variable must be the same directory where the existing PATROL installation is installed.

    5. Click the value for the PATROL3_DIR variable, and enter the subdirectory where you want PATROL to be installed. The value that you enter is appended to the base directory that you specify for the PATROL_BASE_DIR variable.

      Note

      If the computer on which you are installing the package already has a PATROL installation, the directory you enter for this variable must be the same directory where the existing PATROL installation is installed.

       

    6. Click the value for the INTEGRATION_SERVICE variable, and enter the name of the host computer where the Integration Service is installed.
    7. If you are not deploying a PATROL Agent package, click the value for the RULESET variable, remove the PIA_WIN.cfg value, and leave this field blank.

      Warning

      The PIA_WIN.cfg ruleset is used for PATROL Agent deployments only. If this ruleset is specified in the RULESET variable for any package other than a PATROL Agent package, the package deployment fails.

     

  9. In the Modify Instance dialog box, click OK. 

Where to go from here

After you complete creating the property instance, the next step is to create a deployment job in TrueSight Server Automation. For information, see Creating BMC Server Automation jobs to deploy Infrastructure Management component packages to remote hosts.
