Runbook Updates

 

Continuous Compliance for Servers

 

Part of BMC’s Intelligent Compliance use case, the BMC Continuous Compliance for Servers run book automates the integration of BladeLogic Server Automation monitoring, auditing, compliance, and remediation processes with IT management systems such as BMC Remedy ITSM. The 20.14.02 release simplifies the configuration and customization of the solution by replacing the previous module (Closed_Loop_Server-SA-Compliance) with two new modules

•              Closed_Loop_Compliance-SA-Servers

•              Closed_Loop_Compliance_ITSM_Integration

 

This change effectively breaks out the BladeLogic Server Automation workflows from the ITSM workflows enabling them to be installed and tested independently of each other. This change should make it simpler to configure the solution and customize if required.
