Setting up distributed operations

To set up distributed operations, follow this process:

  1. Activate DSO and configure it for your distributed environment.
    See Configuring BMC Remedy Distributed Server Option.
  2. Determine which forms you will transfer data from and which forms you will transfer data to.
  3. Determine the amount of control you need over the transferred data:
  4. Determine which distributed fields to add to the forms identified in step 2.
    See Distributed fields.
  5. Add distributed fields to the forms identified in step 2.
    See Adding distributed fields to forms.
  6. Determine whether you will use distributed pools.
    See Distributed pools.
  7. (Optional) Create distributed pools according to your analysis in step 3.
    See Enabling distributed pools.
  8. Determine how to map the forms identified in step 2.
    See Distributed mapping.
  9. Create the required distributed mappings.
    See Creating distributed mappings.


    Unless otherwise noted, this section assumes that you are mapping between two servers. To maintain data integrity on more than two servers, see Chained and broadcast distributed transfers.

  10. Create filters or escalations that define the conditions under which distributed operations occur.
    See Creating workflow to perform DSO operations.
