You need to create configuration file objects for those files you want to look into. you can do this globally, in the 'config object dictionary', the files will show up in the live browse of all servers the files exist on, or you can create them locally, for this component template, and they would be available in the live browse of the created components only.
to create them locally goto the 'local config objects' section of the component template and add create new config file objects.
Thanks. I've added the files to the Configuration
Object dictionary and they are now part of my
template and discovered components.
One follow-up question. When I click on one
of the "File" type parts of the component,
how do I get it to display the checksum along
with the Date Created/Modified etc ?
Right click and do 'properties' of each file. Some of the attributes may only be viewable via an audit or snapshot job.
Thanks, I do see the checksums when I look at my
Why do I only have the option
to do checksums on Type "File" and
not Type "Configuration"
in my component template ?
the 'file' is the object container, and that is where the permissions, checksums, etc apply.
the 'config file' is looking inside the container. there is no metadata associated at that level, only content.
Oops, I forgot the basic concept.
Is there an way for a file
in a component to be seen as both
a Type "Configuration" ( to examine its contents)
and Type "File" ( to do checksums ) ?
For example , if I wanted
to add /etc/hosts ( Type "Configuration ) as part of a template.
Could Bladelogic would give me the choice of adding
/etc/hosts to the template as either "Configuration", "File" ,
or both ?
you add it twice. once as a file, once as a config file.
You've been very helpful.
