Feature packs and fix packs contain a full installation of the Infrastructure Management Integration Service.

If you have already installed an earlier version of the Integration Service, you can upgrade it. If not, you can install a fresh version of the Integration Service.

Note

Version 10.7.00.001 and later of the Infrastructure Management server and the Integration Service support the TLS 1.2 protocol. Earlier versions of the Integration Service support the SSLv3 protocol. 

After upgrading the Infrastructure Management server, ensure to also upgrade the Integration Service to version 10.7.00.001 or later, if configured to communicate over SSLv3.

As a best practice, BMC recommends that both the Infrastructure Management server and the Integration Service are of the same version.

Note

If you manually delete the default remote cell created by the installer before installing the Fix Pack, the installer recreates the default remote cell during the Fix Pack installation. There is no impact to functionality. 

To configure the remote Integration Service or remote cell after installing the Fix Pack

Migrate Knowledge Bases for custom cells

The Fix Pack installer upgrades and migrates the cell created by the installer. For custom cells that are created manually, the installer upgrades the cell binaries but does not migrate the KBs.

To migrate the KBs for custom cells, perform the following steps:

  1. Follow the instructions at Using the mmigrate utility.
  2. Compile and restart the custom cells. For more information, see Compiling a Knowledge Base - mccomp.

Reinstall the pproxsrv service

If you installed the pproxsrv service on the remote Integration Server for configuring the HP-OM and Tivoli adapters, the Integration Service installer removes the pproxsrv service when you upgrade the Integration Service. The pns.reg file entries are also removed.

After upgrading the Integration Service, perform the following steps:

  1. From the pw command prompt window, run the following command:
    pproxsrv -install -p <port number> -m
  2. Load the pns.reg file.

Copy the S81pronto file

If you installed or upgraded the Integration Service on Linux as a non-root user, perform the following step:

Have an administrator of the Integration Service host machine copy the S81pronto.xxxx file from installedDirectory/pw/pronto/bin to the /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory.

The S81pronto.xxxx file is needed to automatically start the Integration Service after a restart of the host machine.

Reconfigure the remote Integration Service to run as a Network Service user

This step is required only if you configured the remote Integration Service to run as a Network Service user before upgrading to 10.7 Fix Pack 1 and later.

After upgrading to 10.7 Fix Pack 1 and later, the remote Integration Service reverts to run as a Local System user. Reconfigure it to run as a Network Service user. For more information, see Configuring TrueSight Operations Management components to run as a Network Service user.

Reconfigure the remote HA primary cell on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

Perform the following steps after upgrading the remote cells in a high availability SUSE Linux Enterprise Server environment.

  1. Stop the primary and secondary remote cells, if they are running.
  2. Perform the following steps on the primary and secondary remote cells:
    1. Rename the bin folder located under the $MCELL_HOME folder to bin_64.
    2. Rename the bin_32 folder located under the $MCELL_HOME folder to bin.
  3. Start the secondary remote cell, followed by the primary remote cell.
  4. Run the following mposter commands on the primary remote cell only:
    1. mposter -q -n <cell name> -d -a <time zone> -b “description='(UTC+00:00) UTC';tzid='UTC';utc_offset=0;dst_offset=0”
    2. mposter -q -n <cell name> -d -a <time zone> -b “description='(UTC+00:00) GMT';tzid='GMT';utc_offset=0;dst_offset=0”

Note

You can ignore any warnings related to mquery for DDEN_MATCH_TABLE.

(Optional) To configure the Integration Service and PATROL Agent to enable TLS communication

10.7 Fix Pack 1 and later for the Integration Service supports the TLS protocol with SHA-256 certificate support on the PATROL Agent to Integration Service communication channel. This requires the BMC PATROL Agent 10.0 or later.

After upgrading the Integration Service, perform the following steps to enable the Integration Service and PATROL Agent communication to be TLS-compliant.

UNIX

  1. Stop the Integration Service by running the following command: 

    pw is stop
  2. Navigate to the <Integration Service installation directory>/TSIMAgent/pw/patrol/common/security/config_v3.0 directory.
  3. Run the following command:

    #Syntax ./set_unset_tls_IS.sh <$BMC_ROOT> <SET_TLS;UNSET_TLS> <security_level>  
    #Example $set_unset_tls_IS.sh "/opt/TSIMAgent/pw" SET_TLS 3 
  4. Modify the bppmpis.plc file from the /etc/patrol.d/_opt_bmc_TSIMAgent_pw/security_policy_v3.0 directory with the following changes:

    1. At the end of the server section, add the following entries :

      service = SSL
      provider = bmcsslNull
      module_name = libbmcnss.so
    2. In the server section, update the identity and password values with the custom certificate values. Example provided below:

      Original:
      password = 17fa9e37f011ec79ef0b32d00cbc98c4f4ca367272714f6b, sample.bin
      identity = server
      
      Updated:
      password = 67f3e6095553374389b1556afa7e0e4437f6ba5e80295d50acd965c0c603286f, sample.bin
      identity = server - Frisky
  5. Modify the access file from the $BMC_ROOT/pw/patrol/common/security/keys directory and add the highlighted lines:

    For security levels 0-2

    [SSL_SERVER]
    ;
    ALLOW_ACL = *@bmc.com,*@BMC.COM

    NSS_DB_HOME = sql:”server certificate path”

    For security levels 3-4

    [SSL_SERVER]
    ;
    ALLOW_ACL = *@bmc.com,*@BMC.COM

    NSS_DB_HOME = sql:”server certificate path”


    [SSL_CLIENT]
    ;

    NSS_DB_HOME = sql:”client certificate path”

Windows

  1. Stop the Integration Service:

    1. Navigate to Start Settings Control Panel.

    2. Double-click the Services icon to launch the Services dialog box.
    3. Locate the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Integration Service in the list of services, highlight, and click Stop
    4. Click Yes to close the warning message that is displayed. 
      The status for the Integration Service changes from Started to (blank).

  2. Navigate to the <Integration Service installation directory>\TSIMAgent\patrol\common\security\config_v3.0 directory.

  3. Run the following command:

    #Syntax set_unset_tls_IS.cmd <$BMC_ROOT> <SET_TLS;UNSET_TLS> <security_level> -serverDbPath <serverDbPath> -identity <identity> 
    #Example $set_unset_tls_IS.cmd "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\TSIMAgent" SET_TLS 3 -serverDbPath "C:\Certificates\server_db" -identity bmcpatrol
