    How to set default reboot options for Truesight Server Automation (TSSA) deploy jobs?


    ANSWER:

    You can set default reboot option in following steps:

    1) From BSA console, go to 'Configuration' menu >> select "Property Dictionary View" menu item
    2) Expand "Built-in Property Classes" >> expand 'DeployOptions' >> select 'REBOOT_OPTIONS'
    3) Set the preferred option

    NOTE:
    - This will only apply to new bldeploy jobs, not existing jobs
    - This default option will not work for file deploy nor patch remediation jobs.

    REBOOT_OPTIONS

    Enumerated

    Specify reboot behavior by choosing one of the following:

          
           
    • Use item defined reboot setting — Causes a target to reboot after an object in the BLPackage is processed if the instructions for that object call for a reboot. If the reboot setting for an object is By end of job, and a reboot is not scheduled for this job, then a reboot occurs at the end of the job.
    •      
    • Ignore item defined reboot setting — Prevents a server from rebooting no matter how a package is defined unless the object being deployed includes an out-of-band reboot (that is, a reboot that is built into the object and is not part of the BLPackage instructions).
    •      
    • Use item defined reboot settings and reboot at end of job — Causes a target to reboot after each object in the BLPackage is processed if the instructions for that object call for a reboot. In addition, at the end of the job a final reboot occurs if the last item in the job is not defined to reboot. If the last item is defined to reboot, only one final reboot occurs at the end of the job.
    •      
    • Ignore item defined reboot settings and reboot at end of job — Prevents a server from rebooting during a job no matter how a package is defined unless the object being deployed includes an out-of-band reboot (that is, a reboot is built into the object and is not part of the BLPackage instructions). At the end of the job, the server reboots.
    •      
    • Consolidate reboots until end of job — Prevents a server from rebooting unless the item being deployed includes an out-of-band reboot (that is, a reboot that is built into the object and is not part of the BLPackage instructions). If any job items are defined to reboot after deployment, those reboots are consolidated into one reboot at the end of the job. If no job items require a reboot, no reboot occurs at the end of job. If a deployment to Solaris target servers includes items that require a reconfiguration reboot, those reboot requests are consolidated and the reboot at the end of the job is a reconfiguration reboot.
      Note: If a Deploy Job includes a reboot, the job must be executed in single-job mode. This prevents the reboot from interfering with other Deploy Jobs.
