The BMC Atrium Orchestrator Content Installer presents two installation paths that you can choose. You can install only one solution at a time.
When installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator content for use with a BMC solution, BMC recommends that you select the BSM Solutions installation path. However, if you do not want to install BMC Remedy ITSM, use the Custom feature set installation path to install the BMC Atrium Orchestrator content.
The BSM Solutions installation path preselects the content components required for your solution. Using this installation path enables the BMC Atrium Orchestrator content installer to install all the dependent adapters and modules. The installer also verifies that you have the correct versions of BMC Remedy ARS, BMC Remedy ITSM, and BMC Atrium CMDB installed.
During the BSM Solutions installation, BMC Atrium Orchestrator exports all the templates required for the solution to BMC Remedy ITSM. The Content Installer prompts you for the ITSM server configuration parameters and ITSM template fields. After the BSM Solutions has been installed successfully, verify whether the user name in the BMC Remedy ITSM task templates exists in the BMC Remedy ITSM.
When installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator content for use with a BMC solution, BMC recommends that you use the BSM Solutions installation path. You can resort to the custom feature set installation path if the BSM Solutions installation path fails. Contact BMC Customer Support if the BSM Solutions installation path fails.
The Custom feature set installation path does not preselect solutions content. The Custom feature set option provides a path for you to select components to install, even if the option is not required for BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management Triage and Remediation Solution.
The Custom feature set installation path will not install and configure BMC Remedy ITSM artifacts.
After you download the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Content Installer file, follow the installation instructions specific to your operating system platform.
You will need a graphical user interface (GUI) tool to run the content installation file in a Red Hat Linux or Oracle Solaris environment. Remote Linux installations need to use X Windows or a VNC to complete the installation.
