To take advantage of vendor-specific technological expertise and minimize dependency on single product or technology, today organizations invest in truly heterogeneous storage environment. A typical enterprise's datacenter contains a large number of servers. These servers are grouped in clusters, business units, or any other group depending on their main usage.
All the servers in a group are expected to be similar as far as the installed packages and patches are concerned. In large enterprises, the installations are usually carried out using automated tools. Thus, the installed packages are identical on all the servers belonging to a group. However, subsequent fixing, tweaking, and other maintenance activities may lead to disparity in package configuration.
It becomes a complicated task for the administrator to monitor and maintain these packages considering the high number of such installations. Veritas Operations Manager Package Anomaly Add-on lets you automate the package installations, and generate the report that contains package installation anomalies across your datacenter. It provides you with an end-to-end visibility across your datacenter. Package Anomaly Add-on lets you compare all the servers against a set of packages and patches. It helps you find the systems that are non-standard, or have installations different than other similar systems.
The Veritas Operations Manager Package Anomaly Add-on 5.0 is compatible with Veritas Operations Manager 3.1, or later.
