My 3rd day into BMC Atrium CMDB 8.x administering - Part 2: We have covered a lot of great material and I am feeling really good about what I have learned so far.
Excellent! What are the top 3 tips?
I still have 2 more days of the class left, but so far the big 3 hit-home things for me was:
1. Federation!- Don't store any data in the CMDB that is not needed.
2. CI's - A great way to decide if its a CI to store in CMDB: Is it Unique? Does it provide a Service? Is it Manageable?Is it changeable?
3. AI - What a powerful tool.With AI wizard you can seriously set up a job to import into your CMDB in the matter of a few minutes. Looking further into Pentaho Spoon, there are endless possibilities to manipulate, enrich, and upload your data to/from the CMDB any many other data sources.
