Configuring BMC BladeLogic Server Automation (BSA 8.2 to 8.6) systems 

 Click here to expand...

  1. Identify the servers where the BMC BladeLogic Server Automation (BSA 8.2 to 8.6) database is installed. 
  2. Make sure all ORACLE environment variables are set and accessible for the logged-in user on that server (Server user field value).

Note

The database user should be the normal user with Read/Write permissions to the Database schema.

Windows

 Ensure that the "ORACLE_HOME" environment variable is set for the logged-in user (Server user field value) on that server.

UNIX

  1. Ensure that the "ORACLE_HOME" environment variable is set in the “. profile” file for the logged-in user (Server user field value) on that server.
  2. If the ORACLE_HOME variable is not set:
    1. Log in to the Unix machine with the user name and credentials used in the "Server User" and "Server password" fields on the License Utility UI while adding the deployment.
    2. Copy the script from location:"<LU_Install_Directory>/licenseusagecollector/EnvVariableScripts" to the Unix machine.
    3. Give execute permission to the script using chmod +x <scriptname>.
    4. Execute the script.

       Sample run

      The following is a sample run:

      1. Give the permissions as mentioned below:

                     chmod 777 setOracleHome.sh 

      Sample execution statements pasted below: 

      ================================================================================================

      2. To see the usage of this script, please execute the following command: 

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# ./setOracleHome.sh –help 

      setOracleHome [OracleInstallationPath] 

      Specify all the parameters. 

      Type --help to view how to use the script. 

      OracleInstallationPath: Oracle installation absolute path upto sqlplus directory. 

      For Ex: /data1/oracle/product/11.2.0/bin/ sqlplus will be my ORACLE_HOME. 

      ================================================================================================

      3. If the .profile file exist, it gets updated with the ORACLE_HOME variable appended at the end of the it. 

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# ./setOracleHome.sh /usr/oracle/11.2.0 .profile file exist, appending the ORACLE_HOME environment variable to it. 

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# cat .profile

      ORACLE_HOME/usr/oracle/11.2.0

      export ORACLE_HOME 

      ================================================================================================

      4. If the .profile file does not exist, it gets created  with the entry of ORACLE_HOME variable. 

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# ./setOracleHome.sh /usr/oracle/11.2.0 .profile file does not exist. Creating it with ORACLE_HOME environment variable entry.

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# cat .profile

      ORACLE_HOME=/usr/oracle/11.2.0

      export ORACLE_HOME

Configuring BMC BladeLogic Server Automation (BSA 8.7 to 8.9) systems 

 Click here to expand...

Note

For BSA 8.7 Windows and UNIX: The “Profile User” must be assigned to the “BLAdmins” role.

Windows and UNIX

Identify the servers where BMC BladeLogic Server Automation (BSA) Appserver is installed. 

Windows

Ensure that the NSH folder is in the system path. 

UNIX

Ensure that the SSHD process is running on standard ports.

Configuring BMC Performance Manager Portal (BPM Portal v2.11) systems

 Click here to expand...

Windows and UNIX

  1. Identify the servers where the BMC Performance Manager Portal database is installed.
  2. Ensure that, on the Oracle database server, either the ORACLE_BASE or the DATASTORE_HOME environment variable is set.
    The License Utility will check for these two environment variables.
  3. Store the value in the PORTAL_PATH variable to refer it to the PORTAL_PATH\utility\BPM_Datastore_Utility.

Note

In Windows the user should belong to the group ora_dba. In Unix it is group dba.

Windows

Ensure that the "ORACLE_BASE or DATASTORE_HOME " environment variable is set for the logged-in user (Server user field value) on that server.

UNIX

  1. Ensure that the "ORACLE_BASE or DATASTORE_HOME " environment variable is set in the “. profile” file for the logged-in user (Server user field value) on that server.
  2. Make sure one of the following files has the execute permission:
    1. $ORACLE_BASE/utility/BPM_Datastore_Utility/DatastoreCliBMCPDS.sh
    2. $ DATASTORE_HOME/utility/BPM_Datastore_Utility/DatastoreCliBMCPDS.sh 
  3. If not, assign the permission (as per the screenshot) using the following command: chmod +x DatastoreCliBMCPDS.sh.

UNIX

  1. Ensure that the SSHD process is running on standard ports.
  2. Ensure that the user whose credentials are being used by the License Utility to connect to this server has BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME mapped to the correct directory and exported in the .profile file. For example:  Export BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME=/<dir1>/<dir2>/ARSystem

  4. If the BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME variable is not set:
    1. Log in to the Unix machine with the user name and credentials used in the "Server User" and "Server password" fields on the License Utility UI while adding the deployment.
    2. Copy the script from location:"<LU_Install_Directory>/licenseusagecollector/EnvVariableScripts" to the Unix machine.

      3. If the .profile file exist, it gets updated with the BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME variable appended at the end of the it.

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# ./setARHome.sh /data1/bmc/ARSystem .profile file exist, appending the BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME environment variable to it.

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# cat .profile
      BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME=/data1/bmc/ARSystem
      export BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME

      ================================================================================================
      4. If the .profile file does not exist, it gets created with the entry of BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME variable.

      [root@vl-xyz-qa09 ~]# ./setARHome.sh /data1/bmc/ARSystem .profile file does not exist. Creating it with BMC_AR_SYSTEM_HOME environment variable entry.
