Since the advance repeater is not provided with the installers in 8.6 onwards, I guess BMC has plans for decommissioning that.
It should work either ways with Advanced or normal.
The 8.5 ARS should still work w/ 8.6 and 8.7, there aren’t any changes to it. you should be able to use the ARS and normal repeaters in the same env. just setup the rules correctly.
If you create below for a Target Server:
"Repeater Routing Rule #1" with "Condition1" and use "Traditional Repeater"
"Repeater Routing Rule #2" with "Condition2" and use "Avd Repeater"
The stage-indirect deploy job will use Traditional repeater if Condition 1 meets (takes precedence) in the routing rule and normal File Server and Tranditional repeater will be used.
If Condition 2 meets first, then Advanced Repeater + Adv File Server will be used in the deploy job.
So as Bill Robinson mentioned, please configure your repeater routing rule precedence accordingly.
super! Thank you!
I looked for BMC docs that explains how to install repeaters but I can just find docs to Adv. Repeaters.
can any one post the link to how to install repeaters?
In EPD there is no software named repeater or something like that.
Is that 2 Agents one for Server management and the other one works as repeater? like AppServer & FileServer on the same machine I think?right?
a repeater is just a rscd, if you want to have file deploy jobs go through this, you also need NSH installed
basically the same requirements as the ARS, just no ARS here.
I anderstand that with just one RSCD Installation on the RepeaterServer, We can manage the RepeaterServer and the Servers behind the Repeater?right? we don't need 2 Agents with 2 IPs?
Ok, Thank you!
This "yes" marked as the right answer is somewhat misleading because it is taken away from its original context. From the first post it seems that BMC does not recommend using the Advanced Repeater. Is there any way to correct this "mark as the right answer"?
What is misleading?
The Advanced Repeater can be used, but not recommanded from BMC I Think. Right?
actually the original question was if the customer can have a ARS at one facility and a normal repeater at another one. the answer is yes
Thank you, Jim - now I had a second look into the docs and found the official statement (which I was missing before):
(section: Statement of support for Advanced Repeaters)
