You can install the TrueSight Presentation Server unattended (a silent installation), which requires no user interaction during installation. You can perform a silent installation, as described in this topic, or you can use the installation wizard.
The following files are used to configure the silent installation of Presentation Server:
These files are located in the Disk1 directory of the Presentation Server installation file structure.
The following topics are included:
Before you begin the silent installation, complete the following items:
On the system where you want to install the Presentation Server, complete the following procedure:
Use a text editor to open the relevant server-silent-options.txt file.
Specify a valid installation directory for the Presentation Server:
The <directory> is the installation location.
Under the Installation Features section is the Presentation Server component name.
Under the Installer Configuration section, enter the TrueSight Server installation configuration information.
If required, change the default port numbers. Ensure that the port number you enter is available.
Presentation Server configuration descriptions
|System's localhost Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)|
Presentation Server High Availability (HA) option
The default value (0) means that the HA option is enabled.
HA option setting, either Primary Server mode or Secondary Server mode.
The default value (1) means that the Primary Server mode is enabled. The value (2) means that the Secondary Server mode is enabled.
The Secondary server maintains a constantly updated cache memory of the Presentation Server activity.
Elasticsearch cluster name for one node (server), or more nodes, that holds all of the data, and provides federated indexing and search capabilities across all nodes.
The default value for the cluster name is "truesight". It is recommended that you change this name to reflect the logical group name of the cluster.
If you do not use the default High Availability port numbers, only use port numbers between 1024 and 65535.
|Number of the Primary Cache Replication port|
|Number of the Primary Control port|
|Secondary (standby) server host name |
Only applicable when set to Primary Server mode (TrueSight_high_availability_type =1).
|TrueSight_high_availability_secondary_database_port||Number of the Secondary Server database port|
|Number of the Secondary Server Cache Replication port|
|TrueSight_high_availability_secondary_control_port||Number of the Secondary Server Control port|
Secondary server configuration file
Only applicable when set to Secondary server mode (TrueSight_high_availability_type =2).
This file is the HA configuration file that is uploaded during the Presentation Server installation.
|Apache Tomcat HTTP port number|
|Apache Tomcat HTTPS port number|
|Elasticsearch Representational state transfer (REST) port number|
|TrueSight_ElasticSearch_client_port||Elasticsearch client port number|
|TrueSight_cell_gateway_port||Cell Gateway port number|
|TrueSight_database_username||User name for the PostgreSQL database|
|TrueSight_database_confirm_password||Re-enter the encrypted user password|
|TrueSight_database_port||Number of the database port|
|TrueSight_sso_hostname||Host's Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On (SSO) server|
|TrueSight_sso_port||Number of the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On port. Use the port number of the Atrium Single Sign-On server installed on the system. The default port number is 8443.|
|TrueSight_sso_password||BMC Atrium Single Sign-On server encrypted super user password. The Single Sign-On super user name is amadmin.|
The Maintenance Tool enables you to create an encrypted password that the Presentation Server requires for importing a KeyStore. You must use an encrypted password so that the KeyStore password is not exposed in the server-silent-options.txt file.
You can run the Maintenance Tool in a GUI or from the command line interface (CLI).
TrueSight_database_passwordparameter as follows:
Run the following command, entering your password for the
TrueSightPServerMaintenanceTool.cmd -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password=<password> -confirm_password=<password>
.sh -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password=<password> -confirm_password=<password>
For Linux installations, any password that includes special characters requires single quotation marks before and after the password. For example:
.sh -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password='<password>' -confirm_password='<password>'
Copy and paste the encrypted password output to the server-silent-options.txt file for your silent installation.
For example, if the encrypted password output is DES\:d70cbe3669602717ce66af37cce7ecf0, modify the
TrueSight_database_password parameter as follows:
-J TrueSight_database_password= DES\:d70cbe3669602717ce66af37cce7ecf0
Perform the following tasks after installing the Presentation Server: Role-based user access to the features and components that compose BMC TrueSight Operations Management is enabled by persona-based authorization profiles. Each authorization profile is associated with one or more BMC Atrium Single Sign-On (SSO) Server realms and comprises user groups, roles and permissions, and objects. These authorization profiles determine the features and objects that users can access and monitor. You can . If necessary, you can also create authorization profiles.
./tssh service register <nonroot user name>
service BMCTSPSSvc status
The Core Server, Index Server, and Database Server processes should be listed as running.
