The ‘external command’ in the blpackage opens a shell on the target system. Unless you have the blcli installed on your target, and you add a blcred line to establish creds, this would not work.
What are you trying to do?
The customer is provisioning AIX LPar using a BLPackage. Once provisioned they need to register that newly built Lpar with BladeLogic which they do using a nsh script. So these two jobs (Deploy and nsh script job) are batched up.
They are having problems when they copy this batch job to another folder where the jobs (Deploy and nsh script job) still point to the original location where they were copied from.
So if they could run the blcli from a BLPackage then we could have just added it at the end of the provisoning BLPackage and then we wouldn't need a batch job, just a single deploy job would do.
Can you do the lpar provisioning using a nsh script? or can you have the nsh job call the deploy job w/ the properties you want?
That should work, let me give that a go...
do you know the blcli to add/update properties of a BLPackage at the deploy job level?
I have found the blcli.
Thanks for your help Bill.
