BMC Remedy ITSM Process Designer checks

This topic provides information about the checks performed by the BMC Remedy Configuration Check utility for BMC Remedy IT Service Management (ITSM) Process Designer. It also describes the expected results of the checks and corrective actions to be taken if a check fails.
