Adding and configuring external Symantec CMDB connections

IT Analytics Solution lets you add Symantec CMDB connections so their relevant data can be leveraged for reporting purposes.

You need to complete these steps only if the IT Analytics Client and Server Management Pack is installed.

The IT Analytics Client and Server Management Pack lets you view data from one or more Symantec CMDBs. By default, the local Symantec CMDB on which IT Analytics is installed is used. If the local Symantec CMDB is the desired configuration, then you do not need to carry out this procedure.

If the local Symantec CMDB is part of a hierarchy for inventory replication, you must configure the local CMDB as an external connection.

See Configuring the parent or local Symantec CMDB as an external connection.

External Symantec CMDB connections provide global IT Analytics reporting across multiple CMDBs without the need to replicate large amounts of data. It allows multiple Notification Servers to populate all existing cubes. Notification Server computers can be configured in a hierarchy or standalone.
