Importing the ZipKit for Joomla CMS on RHEL 5.8

After you have downloaded the files for the ZipKit, use the eZDeploy toolkit to import the ZipKit and make it available for use by BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. 

Before you begin

Ensure that you have completed the following tasks:

Importing the ZipKit

To import the ZipKit:

  1. Locate the folder to which you downloaded the ZipKit.
  2. Open a command prompt window and navigate to the folder to which you downloaded the ZipKit.
  3. Execute the eZDeploy toolkit by issuing the following command:
eZDeploy> import -service "CLM 4.5-Joomla 3.1 on RHEL 5.8" 
-path "C:/ezdeploy/export/CLM 4.5-Joomla 3.1 on RHEL 5.8.eZ" 
-profile <eZDeploy target eZDeployProfile Name>

The toolkit extracts the blueprint, service, service offering, requestable offering, and the BMC Server Automation objects (packages and scripts) and makes them available for BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. See Using the eZDeploy utility for more information.


Once the import is complete, ensure that you change the following entities depending on your BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management environment:

  • blueprint tags
  • tenant mappings
  • entitlement package mappings
  • version of the blueprint selected in the service catalog; if the blueprint was modified, select the latest version

Also, in the Network Placement Details section of the blueprint, ensure that the IP address is set to Dynamic. If the IP address is set to Static, make sure that the target server is reachable.

To configure network tags for blueprints

After the eZDeploy toolkit makes the blueprint available for BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, you need to configure network tags that were imported with the blueprint according to your environment. See  Managing blueprint tags for more information.


Ensure that you disable NAT settings for the Blueprint tag.
