Reconciling data

After the data is Normalized and Product Catalog updated, Reconciliation is the next stage where data from one or multiple discovery sources is merged and then promoted from the discovery dataset into production dataset (BMC Asset).

Reconciliation is an important pre-requisite for Software License Management (SWLM) as SWLM works only on the production dataset. If the data is not reconciled and not updated in the production dataset, SWLM is unable to use the data, and information about what is deployed in your environment is not reflected correctly.

To reconcile data

  1. Open the Atrium Core console and clicks the Reconciliation icon.
  2. Create the Reconciliation Job for the appropriate discovery source. For more information about creating reconciliation jobs, see Reconciliation jobs.

    Out of the box, BMC BladLogic Client Automation (BBCA) and BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping (ADDM) include reconciliation jobs that should be used if BBCA or ADDM is the discovery source.

  3. Schedule the Reconciliation Job to be run on a regular basis. This ensures that the CMDB maintains information that is accurate with the changes in the environment.
    Select the job and click the Start Job icon to run the Reconciliation Job adhoc.
