Before you begin
- You must install the BMC CMDB Extensions and components before you configure the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server to integrate with the CMDB.
- All BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Servers in your environment must be synchronized with a single CMDB for probable cause analysis and event propagation to work properly
The following scenarios help you to determine the installation and integration process appropriate for your environment:
