Mirroring SmartSwitch rules

You can mirror rules from a SmartSwitch view to one or more subsystems. For example, you can mirror a set of rules that you verified on a test subsystem to all of your production subsystems. The mirroring process transfers all SmartSwitch rules to the target subsystems and replaces the rules that reside on the target subsystems.

To mirror SmartSwitch rules

 New console
  1. In the Product Tools perspective, select a SmartSwitch view.
  2. Click MIrror all rules .

    Tip

    You can also right-click in the results pane to select this action.

  3. In the Mirror DB2 Utility SmartSwitch Settings dialog box, perform the following tasks:
    1. In the Name field, accept the default name, or provide a name for the deployment.
      The name can contain up to 50 characters, including all printable ASCII characters.
    2. Select one or more Db2 subsystem connections as targets for the deployment.

      Tip

       You can select to show only your favorites.

    3. Select whether to continue if an error occurs for a selected Db2 subsystem:
      • Clearing the check box stops the deployment immediately.
      • Selecting the check box continues the deployment with the next Db2 subsystem.
    4. Click Next.
  4. Review the summary of the rule deployment.

    If BMC AMI Command Center detects a connection problem in a target Db2 subsystem the application displays an error message in the lower left-hand corner of the wizard, which identifies the Db2 subsystem that has a connection problem.

  5. Click Finish
    • The mirror deployment view is displayed under Deployment in the navigation pane.
    • The Results tab is displayed in the results pane.
