Setting up Control-M for OCI VM

This procedure describes how to deploy the OCI VM plug-in, create a connection profile, and define an OCI VM job in Control-M Web and Automation API.


Integration plug-ins released by BMC require an Application Integrator installation at your site. However, these plug-ins are not editable and you cannot import them into Application Integrator. To deploy these integrations to your Control-M environment, you import them directly into Control-M using Control-M Automation API.

Before You Begin

Verify that Automation API is installed, as described in Automation API Installation.


  1. Create a temporary directory to save the downloaded files.

  2. Download the OCI VM plug-in from the Control-M for OCI VM download page in the EPD site.
  3. Install the OCI VM plug-in using the Automation API Provision service:
    1. Log in to the Control-M/EM Server machine as an Administrator and store the downloaded zip file in the one of the following locations (within several minutes, the job type appears in Control-M Web):
      • Linux: $HOME/ctm_em/AUTO_DEPLOY
      • Windows: <EM_HOME>\AUTO_DEPLOY
    2. Log in to the Control-M/Agent machine and run the provision image command, as follows:
      • Linux: ctm provision image OCI_VM_plugin.Linux
      • Windows: ctm provision image OCI_VM_plugin.Windows
  4. Create an OCI VM connection profile in Control-M Web or Automation API, as follows:
  5. Define an OCI VM job in Control-M Web or Automation API, as follows:
