Using the CDMChecker tool

The CDMChecker program is a command-line tool, which is located in the cmdb\server64 directory of your BMC Atrium Core installation.

Run the CDMChecker utility to:

  • Detect invalid customization
  • Detect CDM corruption

Run the cdmchecker command line executable in the same directory as cmdbdriver, with the -g parameter.

cdmchecker commands

The details about cdmchecker commands are given in the following table:

Command nameAction performed

cdmchecker -x <filename> -u <username> -p <password> -s <server> -t <tcp port>

Exports the CDM to an .xml file specified by the <filename>. The XML format is the format used by the regular CMDB Export API.

cdmchecker -c <filename> -u <username> -p <password> -s <server> -t <tcp port> -ch

Compares the target CDM with the CDM in the xml file specified by <filename>. This option is useful to determine the customizations in the environment. Run cdmchecker with the -x option on a QA box and use this file for the -c option in the problematic environment. The CDMChecker points out the class differences, the new attributes, the changed attributes, and so on. Additionally you can use the -ch option with the -c option to view the differences in classes, attributes characteristics and custom characteristics in the output. Using -ch  is optional.

cdmchecker -m -u <username> -p <password> -s <server> -t <tcp port>

Compares the CMDB Class meta data with the underlying AR forms and points out the differences. This is the cdmchecker validation performed by the Health Check and written to missing_fields.log.

cdmchecker -g -u <username> -p <password> -s <server> -t <tcp port>

Determines if there are classes and attributes in pending state.

cdmchecker -a -u <username> -p <password> -s <server> -t <tcp port>

Finds missing fields on AR form required for CMDB attribute.

cdmchecker -y -u <username> -p <password> -s <server> -t <tcp port>

Checks if any overlay is created on CMDB class regular forms.
