As an administrator, you can select monitor installation components, such as the BMC PATROL Agent and monitoring solutions to create a deployable package. The components can then be installed together using the deployable package. You can reuse the deployable packages, or deploy the packages to multiple computers.
Log on to the TrueSight console. In the navigation pane, expand Administration, select Repository, and select the Deployable Packages tab.
ClickCreate Deployable Package.
The Create Deployable Package wizard starts.
Select the components that you want to include in the package.
From the Version list, select the version of the component that you want to include in the package.
By default, the latest version available in the Presentation Server is selected. Select latest to automatically update the package with latest versions of components when they are imported to the Presentation Server.
To be able to deploy packages from the TrueSight console, do not include PATROL Configuration Manager, PATROL Agents, or PATROL Agent patches in the deployable packages.
For monitoring solutions that contain sub-components, select the sub-components to be included in the deployable package. (This screen is not available in ProactiveNet and Central Monitoring Administration console.)
Provide PATROL Agent related information.
The following fields depend upon the components that are included in the deployable package. Not all fields may be displayed while creating a deployable package.
Specify the installation directory.
Note that the BMC PATROL products are installed one level below the BMC products installation directory.
The default installation directory is C:\Program Files\BMC Software and not C:\Program Files (x86)\BMC Software. If you have installed a previous version of the product, use the path specified for that installation.
Enter one or more existing Integration Service(s) to connect to. Separate each entry by a comma and use the format Protocol:IntegrationServiceHostname:PortNumber. For example tcp:Integration Service Hostname:3183, where 3183 is the port on which the Integration Service host listens for an incoming PATROL Agent auto-registration connection.
Central Monitoring Administration Tag(s):
Provide comma separated tags that the PATROL Agent will use to get configuration from Central Monitoring Administration. Each tag follows the format TagName:Description. If there is a space in the description, enclose it with quotes. For example, WinOS:"Windows OS Monitoring".
(Optional) Provide the cell configuration details.
Enter the Infrastructure Management encryption key and the cell details in the format Host/Port.
You can choose to route events via an Integration Service.
To route events via an Integration Service, the /EventSetup/Configuration/ForwardEventsToIS PATROL Agent pconfig variable must be set to Yes.
During the upgrade of earlier versions of the BMC PATROL Agent to version 10.0, ensure to provide the correct Cell name in the Infrastructure Management - Primary Cell and Infrastructure Management - Secondary Cell fields in the Infrastructure Management Performance Management Cell Configurations installation screen.
Proceeding with the default value resets the Event Destination of the BMC PATROL Agent to localhost/1828.
If /EventSetup/Configuration/ForwardEventsToIS is set to Yes and Infrastructure Management - Primary Cell is set to localhost/1828, then the PATROL Agent sends events to the local Cell of the Integration Service.
Review the deployable package details.
If you added a monitoring solution that contains sub-components, click the plus sign to view the included sub-components.
In the Installation Package Details window, enter the following information:
Perform one of the following steps:
To save the package for future installation on the current host or other hosts, click Save.
To save the package and download it immediately, click Save and Download.
A template of the package is saved to the installationDirectory\truesightpserver\data\pproxy\installer_templates folder and is listed in the Deployable Packages tab.
After creating deployable packages, deploy them to PATROL Agents. For more information, see Deploying packages to PATROL Agents.
