BMA 8.3, 8.5, 8.7
Where there are separate datacenters and zones in the topology, the BMA deployments and operations takes a long time.
In a multi zone and different datacenter topology BMA deployment can take a long time if the BMA host and the target DMGR hosts are not in the same zone/datacenter. BMA heavily depends on network as it connects to the target via a SOAP port (for WebSphere) and http ports (for other targets).
Please make sure BMA and the targets are in the same zone/datacenter and more specifically on the same subnet to see a better performance.
