Installation Notes

The SAI package in the Inventory Discovery Knowledge Pack is a delta package. The full SAI package is released with major Content Pack (CP) releases.

If you are using a content pack for which the Discovery Knowledge updates are no longer available, you need to switch to using the Discovery Knowledge updates from CP22 instead. But before these updates can be applied, the full SAI package from CP22 must be installed once.

To apply the full SAI package from Content Pack 22, see Apply Full SAI Package from CP22 below.

To apply a Discovery Knowledge update for supported CP versions, see Install Inventory Discovery Knowledge Pack (SAI Libraries) Updates for UCMDB.

 

Apply Full SAI Package from CP22

To apply the full SAI Package from CP22, perform the following steps:

  1. Prerequisites

    The UCMDB Server must be running when you install the Inventory Discovery Knowledge Pack Update.

  2. Back up existing packages

    1. Launch a Web browser and enter the following address:

      https://localhost:8443/jmx-console

      Log in using the JMX console authentication credentials.

      Note Note: Starting with UCMDB version 10.30, by default the HTTPS protocol is enabled for UCMDB server, with the HTTP protocol being disabled.

      If necessary, you can enable HTTP communication for UCMDB Server. For instructions, see "How to Enable HTTP Communication for UCMDB Server" in the HPE Universal CMDB Administration Guide.

    2. Click the UCMDB:service=Packaging Services link.

    3. On the JMX MBEAN View page, locate the following JMX operation: exportPackages ().

      • In the packagesNames field, leave this field empty to export all packages.

      • In the outputDir field, enter the full path to a directory where UCMDB should place the backed-up packages. For example, <UCMDB_Server_Home>\content\my_packages_backup. The directory is created automatically.

      • In the userOnly field, select False to export all packages (and not only the user-created packages).

    4. Click Invoke.
