Setting the RPM Packages module parameters

The RPM Packages (PackagerRpm) module is the method used by BMC Client Management to create Linux specific packages for software distribution. RPM packages are capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating computer software packages. Each software package consists of an archive of files along with information about the package like its version, a description, etc. This module is loaded by default only on the master if it is a Linux device.


Default Value


Archive File Extension


Defines the type of extension for the custom package to be created. Be aware that this extension is valid for all packages which are created. If you modify the extension after having created a number of packages already the packager does not recognize the packages with the old extension any more.

Maximum Number of Retries


Defines the number of times the publishing process is repeated after a failure before the whole process is declared failed.

Retry Interval (sec)


Defines the minimum amount of time between each retry for publishing in seconds.
