Verifies that the BMC Service Desk is accessible and that you are able to ping the AR System server.
This test checks whether the AR System server is accessible. However, if pinging systems through a firewall is disabled in your environment, this test fails even though the AR System server is accessible through web services.
As a result, the other end to end validation tests will be successful. If the Check Incident test is successful, it indicates that the end to end test was successful and the failure message associated with the Check Service Desk Accessibility test can be ignored.
|Expected Result||BMC Service Desk is accessible.|
Ensure that the AR System server host is in the same network as that of the BMC TrueSight Operations Management/BMC ProactiveNet server.
