  • As this new version of the product is still being integrated into the larger BMC suite of products, you should not use it to populate the Atrium CMDB if it is also being populated by other BMC products  such as BMC Bladelogic or BMC BladeLogic Client Automation (formerly BMC Configuration Automation for Clients).  This would result in duplicate computer system CIs being inserted into the BMC Asset dataset.  If this situation applies to you, please continue to use ADDM 7.5.01.  BMC is currently working to provide full compatibility with these products and plans to release an update shortly.
  • You can download the ADDM Integration Extension from the CMDB Sync page. You must install the extension before you can export data to BMC Atrium CMDB. See Exporting to BMC Atrium CMDB for more information on the configuration steps required.

  • If you choose the Custom option, you can edit the cron file to specify the exact timing of the synchronization. Edit the $TIDEWAY/etc/cron/tw_exporter_CMDB-Sync.cron file. After editing the tw_exporter_CMDB-Sync.cron file you must run tw_cron_update to apply the change.
