Performing the BMC Configuration Drift Management installation
Drift Management has been deprecated from BMC CMDB. The documentation provided for Drift Management is also deprecated and provided for information only.
See Deprecated features.
You must run the installations from the server that is running AR System and be logged in to that server with sufficient administrator privileges (or be a non-root user for UNIX).
You can install Drift Management on Windows and Linux platforms. How you install the applications depends on the type of operating system your host machine is running:
|Install Drift Management using the GUI installer on Windows and Linux.|
|Install Drift Management using the command-line interface (CLI) installer on Windows and Linux.|
|The silent installation feature allows you to run Drift Management installations without user interaction, and so reduces errors and standardizes configuration across an enterprise. A normal installation is recorded, and the recorded installation data is used to install Drift Management on other computers. This feature is fully supported on the Windows and Linux platforms.|
If you are installing Drift Management on an Oracle database, the AR System server sometimes times out. If this problem occurs, see Issues with installing Drift Management and Help on an Oracle database.
