To configure BMC Service Resolution in multiserver deployment model of ProactiveNet

For information about the multiserver deployment model, see Central Monitoring Administration best practices from the ProactiveNet 9.6 online documentation.

When implementing BMC Service Resolution, you must perform the following tasks:

  1. Install BMC Service Resolution on the Central Server and child servers.
  2. (Optional) Integrate the Central Server and child servers with Remedy ITSM. See Integrating TrueSight Infrastructure Management or ProactiveNet with BMC Service Desk: Incident Management or Integrating TrueSight Infrastructure Management or ProactiveNet with Remedy OnDemand .
  3. If you do not want to integrate the Central Server with Remedy ITSM, but you want to receive incident information from the Remedy ITSM server, you must register the Central Server with the Remedy ITSM server.

For details about the flow of information in this deployment model, see Configuring BMC Service Resolution in multi server deployment of BMC ProactiveNet.

    What about installing for TrueSight 10.1?  Where are those instructions?  Where does it tell you to install on both TSIM and TSPS?
