This documentation supports the 18.02 version of BMC Digital Workplace. To view the latest version, select the version from the Product version menu.

Reconfiguring the BMC Digital Workplace server

You can use the MyIT configuration utility to change settings that were initially set during installation. For example, you can use this utility if the name of your BMC Remedy AR System server changes. If you set up a load balancer for your AR System server, use this utility to point your BMC Digital Workplace server to the load balancer instead of the AR System server. 

Before you begin

Locate the configuration utility, ux-application-configuration-version.jar, in the MYIT_HOME\Smart_IT_MyIT\ux-application-configuration directory, where version is the BMC Digital Workplaceversion and MYIT_HOME is the directory where BMC Digital Workplace is installed. The default BMC Digital Workplace installation location is as follows:

  • (Windows) C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Smart_IT_MyIT\
  • (Linux) /opt/bmc/Smart_IT_MyIT/
