Prerequisites for running the eZDeploy utility

Before you run the eZDeploy utility, ensure that all the conditions for running the eZDeploy are met by performing either of the following procedures:

To check the environment configurations manually

  • Ensure that you have installed Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.7 on the computer on which you would be running the eZDeploy utility.
  • Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable if it is not already set:
    • (Windows) Go to Advanced system settings Environment Variables; then click New, and add JAVA_HOME as the variable name and <JRE Path> as the value.
    • (Linux) Export JAVA_HOME=<JRE Path>.
  • Ensure that you have installed the BMC Server Automation console on the same computer on which you would be running the eZDeploy utility.
  • Ensure that you use the BMC Server Automation user that is assigned the BladeLogic Administrator role.
  • Ensure that Network Shell (NSH) is installed and the version of NSH matches the BMC Server Automation version that you are using with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.
  • Ensure that you have the NSHDIR set in the environment variables according to your OS environment, and as detailed below:

    Microsoft WindowsLinux
    Open Advanced Properties; then, from the Environment Variables section, create a new environment variable with the following specifications:
    Name: NSHDIR
    Value: C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH
    $ export NSHDIR = /opt/bmc/BladeLogic/NSH
    Check the following file: /usr/lib/rsc/HOME
    The contents of this file must match the NSH install directory; for example:
    C:\Windows\rsc>more HOME
    /cygdrive/C/Program Files/BMC BladeLogic/OM/NSH

    Check the following file:

    [root rsc]# pwd


    [root rsc]# more HOME

To run the validate command

Use the following procedure to validate your environment configurations:

  1. Download and extract the eZDeploy files.
  2. In your eZDeploy shell, execute the following command:

    validate -host <AR_HOST ADDRESS/IP ADDRESS of AR Server> -port
    <port number> -user <AR server user name> -password 
    <AR server user password>
    • host - BMC AR System server host name or IP address
    • port - BMC AR System server port number
    • user - BMC AR System server user name.


      Ensure that the BMC AR System server user has the Administrator and Cloud Administrator privileges.

    • password - BMC AR System server user password
