Integrating with BMC Atrium CMDB in an Action Request Server group

When integrating with an Action Request Server Group, you must install the ProactiveNet CMDB Extensions on:

  • The primary administrative server - Installing on the primary administrative server creates the necessary forms, workflow, and data. It also deploys the Impact Model Designer on the primary server.
  • Each server that has the reconciliation function enabled - Installing on each server is necessary to install the BPPM Notify ARDBC plugin and iBRSD plugin. For more information, see Configuring the Notify ARDBC plug-in.
