HP BSM 9.0

Jump to solution
Hello All,

In BSM 9.0, we get uCMDB as part of the installation which provides all the features available in the standalone uCMDB product.
Then, the question is, why do we need to buy uCMDB separately when we get the same from BAC/BSM 9.0?

Thanks for your response!

Hi ,

you have to plan why you need to use an external UCMDB , for example if you would like to integrate UCMDB with SM so the such integration only supported on external one not the BSM embedded.


Thanks

You cannot buy uCMDB because it costs nothing. It's provided for free with any product that uses it. It's DDM that costs money.

Hello Haytham,

Thanks for the information, that helped us.

In that case, how can I integrate HP SM, uCMDB and BSM 9.0?

What ever I understand from your comments is that SM cannot be integrated with BSM and embedded uCMDB. Is my understanding correct?

Thanks!

The correct way to integrate these 3 products would be regular uCMDB-SM integration + uCMDB-BSM topology synchronization (integration adapters for such sync are available in both uCMDB 9 and BSM 9).

Hi,

yes , you have to integrate SM with external UCMDB and also UCMDB will integrate with BSM out of the box , once you isntall BSM you will prompt to configure your databases

one of options is to connect to an external UCMDB.

Hope this helps you

Thanks

This is totally incorrect. BSM 9.0 cannot be deployed with external uCMDB as it was possible to do with BAC 8.x. BSM 9.0 MUST use embedded uCMDB instance called RTSM (aka ODB) and can only be synced with a separate uCMDB 9 instance acting as CMS in the entire BSM-uCMDB-SM solution.

In order to hook the ucmdb/ddm server to the BSM9 application would I point the ucmdb to the ODB schema that I created for BSM9?

As I previously mentioned it's NOT possible to "hook" external uCMDB server to BSM 9 directly. What was possible in 7.x and 8.x is gone. In 9.x world you can only sync 2 _separate_ uCMDB instances - one is external/standalone uCMDB and another is embedded uCMDB (called RTSM) that is part of BSM 9 platform.

Do you know if there is "How To" documentation for sycn BSM9.x with external UCMDB 9.x?
If so, could you point me to it?
