BMC Service Level Management Maintenance tool

The BMC Service Level Management Maintenance tool is a diagnostic utility that is included when you install BMC Service Level Management.

Note

To simplify operations such as logging and performing health checks, the BMC Service Level Management Maintenance tool runs on the designated AR System server.    

The following sections describe the uses of the BMC Service Level Management maintenance too, and provide some information about the other BMC Remedy ITSM Maintenance tools:

Collect and view logs

The BMC Service Level Management Maintenance tool provides access to installation and uninstallation logs. Each time that you run the installer or uninstaller, a log file is created or appended to an existing log file. You can view the log file from a log viewer, which you launch from the BMC Remedy ITSM Maintenance tool.

The log viewer is a graphical presentation of the log files. Each installer log session is displayed as a tab. The tab's name includes a time stamp of the installer run. The tab displays the contents of the log file, with errors highlighted in red and warnings highlighted in yellow. Entries are presented in a table format that you can sort.

See Working with logs and Viewing installation and installation logs for more information.

Encrypt passwords

From the BMC Service Level Management Maintenance tool Encryption tab, you can generate an encrypted password to use when running a silent installation.

See Encrypting passwords for more information.
