Central Monitoring Administration is enabled by default when you install Central Server, and you can register Child Servers with the Central Monitoring Administration during child server installation.

A registered Child Server with associated Integration Services enables policy actions on the following components:

  • Connected BMC PATROL Agents with matching conditions
  • Monitor instances discovered by those agents
  • Devices monitored by those agents

For details about the installation options, see Installing BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server.

Registering Child Servers with Central Monitoring Administration

If you did not register a Child Server with the Central Monitoring Administration during child server installation, use the pw cmadmin command to register the child server. In a single-server environment, register the server with its own Central Monitoring Administration.

For information about the pw cmadmin command, see pw cmadmin.

Importing the extended Central Monitoring Repository file

You can import the extended Central Monitoring Repository file (9.5_extended-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.zip) using the Central Monitoring Administration. For information about importing the repository files, see Managing the repository.

BMC PATROL Agent compatibility

Ensure that BMC PATROL Agents are up to date. For version details, see System requirements and product compatibility.
