Deploying products to other subsystems, LPARs, and sysplexes

The Installation System does not directly deploy products to other environments; it does, however, create deployment-ready JCL which makes it easy to deploy installations to additional subsystems, LPARs, and sysplexes.

The generated installation and configuration JCL contains INCLUDE members that you modify to deploy products to another environment. You do not need to go through the user interface or set configuration options again.

Best Practice

BMC strongly recommends creating a new JCL data set for deployment. Doing so ensures that you have the full set of JCL used to perform the configuration of the BMC products for the subsystem, LPAR, or sysplex in question.


The following figure depicts the flow for deploying products. For more information, use the links in the table below the figure.
