To configure servers for CA SDM, you add servers records using the web interface and then execute the pdm_configure utility on the servers. The server list displays information about the server deployed in your CA SDM installation. You can modify existing server information, or search for a specific configuration from the list.

Follow these steps:
  1. Log in to the following server, depending on your CA SDM configuration:
    • Conventional: Primary server
    • Advanced availability: Background server
  2. Select System, Servers from the Administration tab.
    The Server List page opens.
  3. Click Create New to add a server record for the following server, depending on CA SDM configuration:
    • Conventional: Secondary server
    • Advanced availability: Application or standby server
      The Create New Server page opens.
  4. Complete the server fields, as appropriate for the server.
  5. Click Save.
    You added the server detail.
Create Server Fields
The following fields appear when you create a server:
Host Name
Specifies the local host name of the server. The local host name is stored in the usp_servers table in local_host column.
Ensure that host name is entered as case-sensitive in the usp_servers table.
Time Zone
Specifies the time zone where the server is located. The time zone is used for triggering events in the system if the Use End User Time Zone option is not selected, or if no time zone is specified for the service type.
Record Status
Indicates the state of the server. Active status indicates that the server is a part of the CA SDM deployment.
If you have inactivated any server, it is recommended not to start CA SDM services on that server. This action may result in unexpected behaviour.
Server Type
Specifies the type of server that you want to configure. Following server types can be selected, depending on your CA SDM configuration:
  • Advanced Availability: Application or standby server
  • Conventional: Secondary server
Configured
Available only for advanced availability configuration. Indicates the state of the configured server. The default value of this field is No. The value is updated to Yes after you successfully run pdm_configure on that server. If you edit any of the automatically entered field values of a server record, the Configured field turns to No.
