BMC TrueSight Server Automation Initial Setup

Jeremy Bragg

The initial setup was fairly standard. I've done a lot of installs of the software. There are certain strategies that we developed in the post-sales consulting we did - as opposed to pre-sales - for how we would set up environments. We did that because it made it easier for support to support the product because they knew that we had a consistent methodology for how we built out the environment. We followed the standard playbook that we had in consulting. We based the size of the environment on the number of servers and estimated job counts, to be able to hit the thresholds. It's been a while since I've been there. I've been with this company for eight years now, but at the time we had a really good setup, playbooks for how we did the initial installations.

When you are installing any sort of new tool or application into the enterprise, not all enterprises are the same. We did have a few teething issues when we first stood it up, but that was fine. We got around those teething issues. The platform is there today working. We haven't really had any problems with the application. It has been running happily. When we had our requirements integrate into a different scanning tool, we found that it isn't plug and play. There is bespoke development that needs to happen to be able to integrate it with those tools. This is something I would like them to improve. View full review »

The setup is not too complex compared to SCCM. I came to the project without any knowledge of BMC BladeLogic. We started going through the documents from the BMC BladeLogic KB articles and then we started working on the BMC tools. That was it. We didn't have any training on BMC BladeLogic. View full review »

The initial setup for this solution is straightforward. We are just starting to deploy the product. Right now we're sampling about fifty systems to do automation, such as updating and rebooting systems. View full review »

The initial setup of this solution is complex, but it was specific for me and my company. When it came to deploying the endpoint, it needed a long time to get it together. For me, it was complex. View full review »
