The BMC ProactiveNet Central Monitoring Repository includes the current versions of the BMC PATROL Monitoring Solutions that you can use with BMC ProactiveNet. Administrators can use the repository with Central Monitoring Administration to select monitor installation components (such as the BMC PATROL Agent and monitoring solutions) and create an installation package. 

The BMC ProactiveNet Central Monitoring Repository is split into two files:

  • Base repository. The BMC Truesight Infrastructure Management Base Monitoring Installation Repository v10.5.00 file name is format.
  • Extended repository. The BMC Truesight Infrastructure Management Extended Monitoring Installation Repository v10.5.00 file name is in the extended_10.5.00-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.tar format.

where, yyyymmdd-hhmmss is the date and time of the repository image.

 You must download these files from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) facility, or copy the files from your installation kit to the BMC ProactiveNet Central Server file system.

When you install a BMC ProactiveNet Central Server or a standalone BMC ProactiveNet Server, you select the base repository image file to import its contents to Central Monitoring Administration. To update the base repository image, or import the extended repository image, use the import function in the Central Monitoring Administration. You can also download and import individual solutions from the EPD site, or import structured custom solutions (see Building a PATROL Knowledge Module Developers Guide from the BMC Support website). For information about importing KM to the Central Monitoring Repository, see Importing KM to the Central Monitoring Repository.
