Using the Installer to integrate brownfield products into BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management

You might have existing brownfield stand-alone products in your environment that you want to integrate into the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution. You can integrate these products into the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution using the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution installer.

This topic includes the following information:


The process for integrating these existing products to the solution differs based on the product that you want to integrate. For example, if you want to integrate an existing BMC Remedy AR System installation to the solution, the procedure is different because BMC AR System Server – Cloud Portal and Database is the first product to installation in the installation order.

When you integrate existing BMC stand-alone products to the solution, you must follow the installation order. For more information, see Installation order and product dependencies

Use the Integrate with an Existing Deployment option to run the installer on a different computer after a BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management application has failed to install properly. For example, you might have tried to install a product and fixing the installation problems were too complicated on the current computer. You can run the installer on a different computer, integrate the applications that were installed successful, and then re-try installing. 

Integrating existing brownfield BMC products into BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management using the installer

To integrate the existing brownfield products using the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Installer, choose the Integrate with an Existing Deployment based on the following scenarios:

Scenario

Explanation

Upgrading your existing BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution to the latest version

If the latest BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Installer is not available, use this option to upgrade your solution.

Integrating older versions of existing BMC products into the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution

All existing BMC products that you want to integrate to the solution must match supported product versions. If a product does not match the version supported by the solution, you must upgrade that product by using the stand-alone installer. After upgrading, you can integrate the product to the solution, based on its product category as explained in the diagram in this topic.

Integrating existing BMC products into the solution that match supported versions

If a product matches the version supported by the solution, you can directly integrate the product to the solution, based on its product category as explained in the diagram in this topic.


The following table describes the version requirement for integration of other products in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer (Planner) :

Product

Version

BMC Server Automation

Ensure that BMC Server Automation version is either the one packaged with Planner or later versions of BMC Server Automation.

Other products ( for example, Atrium Orchestrator)Ensure that the product version is the one packaged with Planner. Later versions are not supported.

BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management does not support integration of products that are partially installed. For successful integration, ensure that the mandatory components are installed on the target server. For example,  

  • For Atrium Orchestrator primary integration, the following components must be present:
    • Access Manager and repository
    • Configuration Distribution peer
    • Atrium Orchestrator content
    • BMC Server Automation console

  • For Atrium Orchestrator secondary integration, the following components must be present:
      • Configuration Distribution peer
      • BMC Server Automation console

Where to go from here

The following topics explain the two categories of BMC products that you can integrate to the solution.
