Synchronizing database registration information

For Database Advisor, synchronizing database registration information with the information that is stored in the repositories ensures that repository data reflects only the most current state of databases.

The database registration synchronization function compares the current state of a database with registered database information and determines whether data has been added, deleted, or changed. If any information is different, Database Advisor synchronizes the information by updating the repositories with current state information. All updates are reported to the CPCLOG.

BMC recommends that you synchronize database registration information daily. You can synchronize database registration information by using one of the following methods:

  • Schedule database registration synchronization to occur automatically (recommended)

  • Use the BMC database registration synchronization batch utility

The only difference between methods is that the batch utility provides an option to report the differences to the CPCLOG without updating repositories automatically with current state information.
