EnhancementDescription

Auto diagnosis of JServer failure

With this update of infrastructure Management Server, if JServer fails to initialize, JServer automatically diagnoses and reports the cause of the failure including the duration of each failure in the jserverautodiagnosis.log file. This log file also provides the details of processes that JServer initializes, including the initialization time taken by each process. 

JServer also reports the status of its initialization on multiple platforms in the jserver_initialization_report_<timestamp>.html file. The log and HTML files are located in the following folder:

(WindowsInfrastructureManagementInstallDirectory\pw\pronto\logs\

(Linux/SolarisInfrastructureManagementInstallDirectory/pw/pronto/logs/

Downloading the update

  1. Create a directory in which to place the downloaded files.

    Note

    On Microsoft Windows computers, ensure that the new directory is only one level into the directory structure. The EPD package creates a directory in the temporary directory when you extract the files, and the directory that contains the installation image must not be in a directory deeper than two levels into the directory structure.

  2. Go to http://www.bmc.com/available/epd.html.
  3. At the logon prompt, enter your user ID and password, and click Submit.

  5. If you are accessing this site for the first time, create an EPD profile to specify the languages and platforms that you want to see, according to the EPD site help; otherwise, skip to step 6.

      This method requires a one-time installation of the Akamai NetSession client program on the target computer and is usually the faster and more reliable way to transfer files. A checksum operation is used to verify file integrity automatically.
