Configuring Infrastructure Management Integrations using the operator console
You can integrate Infrastructure Management with other BMC products by using a post-installation configuration utility that is accessed from the TrueSight Infrastructure Management operator console.
The following BMC products can be integrated with TrueSight Infrastructure Management by using the post-installation configuration utility:
Other integrations with BMC products are possible but are not currently available for configuration using the post-installation configuration utility.
Advantages of using the utility
- Integrate the previously BMC products with TrueSight Infrastructure Management in a common interface by editing the required parameters for each configuration.
- Launch the integration interface from the TrueSight Infrastructure Management operator console and configure all integrations. There is no need to log on to the TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server to enable integrations.
- Save time during the installation process by performing the integrations after the installation.
- Save time during server deployments by performing the integrations after the deployments.
- Make changes to IP addresses and other configuration parameters previously set by launching the integration interface and modifying the required fields.
Limitations of the utility
After an integration is enabled, you cannot disable it through the interface. Active and inactive modes are available only for LDAP integrations.
Configuring Infrastructure Management integrations
- In the operator console, select Options > Administration.
Under Integrations with other BMC Products, click Edit.
The Configure Infrastructure Management Integrations dialog box displays the available integrations, and their relevant fields values. By default, all integrations are marked for configuration and their configuration fields appear on the screen. If the text fields are populated with values, it means that the integration is enabled. Empty text fields indicate that the integration is not configured.
You can hide integrations that are not relevant to your installation by clearing the check boxes next to the integration name.
When you select or clear one or more integrations, other integrations might be automatically selected or cleared due to shared dependencies.
In an upgrade scenario, details of the integrations already exist in the database. However, no data validation occurs during an upgrade. To initiate validation, modify the data in the configuration fields. All the fields that are available during installation are also available in the integration screen.
Scroll down and enter the configuration values for the integrations.
The system tries to integrate with all the applications for which you have modified the configuration values in one batch. The integration process might take several minutes before completing.
Verify the success or failure for each integration in the results window that is displayed.
