Installing BMC Atrium Core Web Services components on an external tomcat
Ensure that you install BMC Atrium Core Web Services components as follows:
- Install BMC Atrium Core Web Services and BMC Atrium Core Web Registry on the same computer.
- Install BMC Atrium CMDB on a computer other than the one on which BMC Atrium Core Web Services and the BMC Atrium Core Web Registry are installed.
- You cannot install BMC Atrium Web services directly in a server group. BMC recommends to install BMC Atrium Web Services on a separate machine and then configure it for the server group.
When installing BMC Atrium Core Web Services:
- Unix non-root mode: You must have write access to \etc, \opt\bmc folder, and the install location.
- Windows non-admin mode: You must have write access to the install location, and %windir% directory.
- You can use bundled Apache Tomcat to deploy BMC Atrium Core Web Services components in a Proof of Concept (PoC) environment. However, in a production environment, you must use an external Tomcat to deploy BMC Atrium Core Web Services components.
Before you begin
- Install Apache Tomcat on your machine as a service (WINDOWS) or as a non-service (UNIX). For instructions, see . For Tomcat version, see
- After installing Tomcat, set the Maximum heap memory and Maximum memory pool parameters to 1024 MB.
To install BMC Atrium Core Web Services components
- Download the BMC Atrium Core installer on a computer other than where you have installed the AR System server.
- Unzip the installer.
- Navigate to the Disk 1 folder.
- Start the installer.
- For Windows, run setup.exe.
- For UNIX, run setup.bin.
- In the Welcome panel, click Next.
- Review the license agreement, click I agree to the terms of license agreement, and then click Next.
- In the AR System Server Information panel, perform the following actions:
- Enter AR System username and password.
- Enter AR System port number and host name.
- Navigate to the directory in which you want to install BMC Atrium CMDB.
The default locations are:
- For Windows: C:\Program Files\BMC Software\AtriumCore
- For UNIX or Linux: /opt/bmc/AtriumCore
- Click Next.
The installer validates the system resources of your computer.
- In the Installation Mode panel, select Install and then click Next.
- In the BMC Atrium Installation Information panel, review the information and then click Next.
In the Features panel, select only the BMC Atrium Core Web Services components, and then click Next.
For example, select BMC Atrium Core Web Services and BMC Atrium Core Web Services Registry.
Make sure Tomcat service is created and running, if you are using existing Tomcat in a windows environment. If you have registered Tomcat as a service, the installer automatically detects the Tomcat. Hence, you need not check if the Tomcat service is running.
In the succeeding panels, enter the values from the planning spreadsheet.
- In the Run Preinstall Health Check panel, click Next to run the additional validation tests.
If you don't want to run the health check, select No, and then click Next.
The health check is run after the installation.
- The installer validates the inputs. The Installation Preview panel appears, listing the product and product features that will be installed.
- Click Install.
Installation summary is displayed.
- To verify the installation, click View Log.
- Verify and rectify if there are any SEVERE error messages or warnings in the product installer log.
See whether errors are due to network, host, or other environment-related issues.

- Click Done to exit the BMC Atrium Core installer.
BMC Atrium Core does not provide load-balancing support for BMC Atrium web services components in an AR System server group environment. Instead, you can configure the AR System server group for providing redundancy capabilities to the web services components. For this, you need to update the BMC Atrium web services registry on the secondary servers. See, from the BMC Atrium Core online documentation.
