    After you install TrueSight Presentation Server and Atrium Single Sign-On, you must register the component products as data providers to the Presentation Server. This registration process enables the Presentation Server to receive data from its component parts. You can register component products as you add them, 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.

      Notes

      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.

      Tip

      If the Infrastructure Management server contains a large number of groups, set the Component Initialization Timeout (min) period to 5 minutes. For more information, see Troubleshooting groups .

    8. Clear the Propagate 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 Propagate Events box checked.

    9. Click Save.

    Note

    If the Infrastructure Management Server is in high availability mode, ensure that the configured cluster name and host names of the primary and secondary Infrastructure Management servers are resolved with the proper IP addresses and reachable from the computer that hosts the Presentation Server.

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

     Click here to expand...

    Add one and only one App Visibility portal for each tenant that you monitor with the Presentation Server. In a high-availability environment, the connection to a portal is through its load-balancing server.

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

    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).

      In a high-availability environment, enter the FQDN of the load-balancing server.

      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:

      (error) localhost is not a legal FQDN

      (error) bmc.com is not a legal FQDN

      (tick) hostname.bmc.com is a legal FQDN

    4. Accept the Port number (default value 8100), or enter a new value.
      In a high-availability environment, enter the port number of the load-balancing server.

    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.

    To add a Real User Analyzer

     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 Real User Analyzer.

    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. Accept the Port default value (443), 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.

    6. Under Custom Setting, enter a Username and Password for the Real User Analyzer.

    7. Click Save.


    To connect with Capacity Optimization to view capacity pools

     Click here to expand...

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

    3. For the component type, select Capacity Optimization. 

    4. Enter a valid Host Name or IP Address.
       

      Notes

      • 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 ( - ), cannot contain any spaces, or exceed 63 characters.


    5. Select the Protocol as HTTPS or HTTP. The default is HTTPS. 
    6. Accept the Port default value (8280).

    7. Accept BmcRealm as the default tenant or select any of the listed tenants. The list includes each tenant defined in the Atrium Single Sign-On system.

    8. Click Save.

      The Capacity Optimization component is added and is listed in the Components page.

      Verifying component registration

      If the component is successfully registered, the Status column shows Connected, that indicates that the component is registered successfully, as shown in the following image:

      Capacity views is available in the Navigation panel. You can start accessing the capacity views from the Capacity views menu.

      Note

      If Atrium Single Sign-On is not configured correctly with BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization, you get the following error when you try to access the Capacity Pools View: BCO_PS_ERR102: Unauthorized: Capacity Optimization access is denied, check your Atrium Single Sign On configuration.
