After you install the basic components of the Operations Management system, you must identify the component systems as data providers to the Presentation Server. This registration process enables the Presentation Server to receive data from its component parts. You can register data providers as you add component systems, or when you finish adding all components.

Before you begin 

You must have installed at least one Operations Management component, as described in Installing.

To connect an Infrastructure Management server 

 Click here to expand...
  1. In the TrueSight console, go to Administration > Components, select the action menu next to Components, and select Add Component.

  2. For the component type, select Infrastructure Management Server.

  3. Enter a valid Host Name or IP Address.

    Note

    If the "Invalid Host Name or IP Address" message appears, re-enter a valid name or address. The name or address cannot start or end with a dash ( - ), contain any spaces, or exceed 63 characters.

  4. Select an HTTP or HTTPS protocol.
  5. Accept the default port number (443), or enter a new value.

  6. Select any of the listed tenants.
    The list includes each tenant defined in the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On system.

  7. Enter a value between 1 to 10 in minutes for the Component Initialization Timeout (min) period.
    This is the time period that the Presentation Server tries to initialize a connection to the component. If the connection is not completed within the time period, the connection to the component will fail.

  8. Clear the Sync Events box to stop propagation of events from the Infrastructure Management server to the Presentation Server.

    Note

    To enable propagation of events at a later time, delete the Infrastructure Management server and re-add it with the Sync Events box checked. 

  9. Click Save.

To connect an App Visibility Portal to the Presentation Server and (optionally) an Infrastructure Management cell

 Click here to expand...

Add an App Visibility portal to the Presentation Server. In a multitenancy environment, add one portal per tenant.

In an integrated system, to see the App Visibility events in the TrueSight Presentation Server console, associate the App Visibility portal with an Infrastructure Management Server cell.

Warning

Deleting an App Visibility portal is irreversible. You cannot add a previously deleted portal. Synthetic execution data is lost.

Do not connect a previously deleted App Visibility portal to another Presentation Server or associate the portal with a different tenant. Automatically generated applications are carried over, compromising data isolation, and manually created applications can show unexpected results or errors.

  1. In the TrueSight console, go to Administration > Components, select the action menu next to Components, and select Add Component.

  2. For the component type, select App Visibility Portal.

  3. In Host Name or IP Address enter a valid fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

    Note

    If the "Cannot add App Visibility Portal using IP address or host name. Use fully qualified domain name instead." message appears, re-enter a valid FQDN. 

    • The name cannot start or end with a dash ( - ) or contain any spaces.
    • The name must be at least 3 segments separated by periods (.).
    • Each segment must not exceed 63 characters.
    • The name cannot be an IP address.

    Examples:

    • localhost is not a legal FQDN
    • bmc.com is not a legal FQDN
    • hostname.bmc.com is a legal FQDN
  4. Accept the Port number (default value 8100), or enter a new value.

  5. Select any of the listed tenants.
    The list includes each tenant defined in the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On system, and each tenant can have only one App Visibility portal.

  6. Under Custom Setting, choose one of the following event destinations:

    • Select an Infrastructure Management Server. 
      The list displays the Infrastructure Management Servers that are associated with the tenant that you selected.

    • Select Customize Cell Details, and enter the Cell Host, Cell Port (default value 1828), and Encryption Key for the cell.
      These settings are for the administration cell of an Infrastructure Management Server that is connected to the Presentation Server, or a remote cell that is itself connected to the administration cell of an Infrastructure Management Server connected to the Presentation Server. Only customized cells connected to an Infrastructure Management Server v10.x are supported.
    • Select No Event Channel Selected.
      With this option, no events are reported from the App Visibility portal.

7. Click Save.

To connect an IT Data Analytics Server 

 Click here to expand...
  1. In the TrueSight console, go to Administration > Components, select the action menu next to Components, and select Add Component.

  2. For the component type, select IT Data Analytics Server.

  3. Enter a valid Host Name or IP Address.

    Note

    If the "Invalid Host Name or IP Address" message appears, re-enter a valid name or address. The name or address cannot start or end with a dash ( - ), contain any spaces, or exceed 63 characters.

  4. Select an HTTP or HTTPS protocol.
  5. Accept the Port default value (9443), or enter a new value.

  6. Select any of the listed tenants.
    The list includes each tenant defined in the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On system.

  7. Click Save.
