- /usr/ar (default AR System installed location)
- /etc/arsystem/<ARS- server-name>/armonitor.conf
If you do not install Drift Management in your home directory but in the default AR System directories, then you must be given access to specific directories that the installer writes to:
- /usr/arsystem/ (default AR System installed location)
When installing help, your Linux system administrator must give you full read, write, and execute access to the BMCCDMOnlineHelpSetup.bin executable and to the /tmp directory. You should install help in your home directory. Otherwise, you must be given access to specific directories that the installer writes to.
After you give access to the directories, run the following commands as a root user:
mkdir /usr/arsystem chown remedy:bmc /usr/arsystem cd /bin ln -s /opt/bmc/ARSystem/bin/arsystem ./arsystem cd / ln -s /opt/bmc/ARSystem/pluginsvr/ pluginsvr cd / ln -s /opt/bmc/ARSystem/conf ./conf
