Separating the downloaded ITM/ITCAM media image into smaller agent/platform bundles

Technical Blog Post


Abstract

Separating the downloaded ITM/ITCAM media image into smaller agent/platform bundles

Body

The method for separating the downloaded media image into smaller agent/platform bundles is to use the command "tacmd exportbundles"

You can use the command "tacmd listbundles" to determine what bundles are available to be exported.

 

The tacmd commands are available on any system where you have installed Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring server or Tivoli Enterprise Portal server.

The tacmd commands can also be installed on any system from the ITM base_unix, base_linux, or agents media by selecting the application "Tivoli Enterprise Services User Interface Extensions" for the current platform.

 

The 6.3 online documentation links for the tacmd commands is here.

For this example;

The expanded media image is available at /media/itm/CZ5XLEN The working area where the bundles will be places in located at

/working/bundles/CZ5XLEN

NOTE: This directory must exist before running tacmd exportbundles.

 

 

The following command will list the Windows (WINNT, WIX64) bundles available on the media.

tacmd listbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/WINDOWS/Deploy

 

The following command will list the Windows (WIA64) bundles available on the media.

tacmd listbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/WIA64/Deploy

 

The following command will list the Unix/Linux bundles available on the media.

tacmd listbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/unix

 

The following commands will export bundles for the OS agents on all of the Windows platforms:

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/WINDOWS/Deploy -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL -t nt

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/WIA64/Deploy -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL -t nt

 

The following commands will export bundles for the OS agents on all of the Unix and Linux platforms:

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/unix -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL -t ux

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/unix -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL -t lz

 

 

The following commands will export all bundles for all platforms:

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/WINDOWS/Deploy -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/WIA64/Deploy -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL

tacmd exportbundles -i /media/itm/CZ5XLEN/unix -e /working/bundles/CZ5XLEN -o LOCAL

 

The bundles will be placed in individual directories under

/working/bundles/CZ5XLEN.

The subdirectories have the following naming convention:

<PC>_<VERSION>_<PLATFORM>

 

The exported bundle subdirectories for all of the OS agents in the 6.22.02 media looks like the following:

NT_062202000_WIA64  lz_062202000_ls3246 ux_062202000_hpi116

NT_062202000_WINNT  lz_062202000_ls3263 ux_062202000_sol283

NT_062202000_WIX64  lz_062202000_ls3266 ux_062202000_sol286

lz_062202000_li6243 lz_062202000_lx8266 ux_062202000_sol293

lz_062202000_li6263 ux_062202000_aix523 ux_062202000_sol296

lz_062202000_lia266 ux_062202000_aix526 ux_062202000_sol606

lz_062202000_lpp266 ux_062202000_hp11

lz_062202000_ls3243 ux_062202000_hp116

 

 

You can tar or zip each directory or ease of transport.

 

The bundle repository can be significantly larger that the media itself since common components are now duplicated in each of the bundle directories.

 

To install a Windows bundle, run silentInstall.bat from the bundle directory.

To install a Unix or Linux bundle, run silentInstall.sh from the bundle directory.

Install also works with:

/opt/IBM/ITM/bin/install.sh -q -h /opt/IBM/ITM/ -p /opt/IBM/ITM/response/silent_install_lz.txt

/opt/IBM/ITM/bin/itmcmd config -A -p /opt/IBM/ITM/response/silent_config_lz.txt lz
