Configuring the Infrastructure Management Server as a Central Server Router or a Child Server manually

The BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server is automatically configured as a Central Server or a Child Server when you install the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server or when running the pw configwsroles  command. This command updates the corresponding values in the pw\custom\conf\bppmws.properties file. However, if for some reason, the servers are not configured automatically, you can configure them manually.

To configure BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server environments using CLI commands, see pw configwsroles .
