Move Device Pack Engine
Use the Move feature to move a device pack Engine from one LocalController to another.
Follow these steps:
  1. Select one or multiple Engines and click Stop.
  2. Click Move, specify the LocalController as new destination, and click Move.
  3. Do one of the following steps:
    • In the destination LocalController, if you want to prevent the download and process of the already polled data, continue from Step 4.
    • In the destination LocalController, if downloading and processing the already polled data is acceptable, continue from Step 7.
  4. Browse to the following location in the destination LocalController: /opt/CA/CAMM/COMPONENTS/ENGINE_<
    devicepack name
    >
  5. Create the tmp, input, performance, and inventory folders in the following order:
    /opt/CA/CAMM/COMPONENTS/ENGINE_<d
    evicepack name
    >/tmp/input/performance
    /opt/CA/CAMM/COMPONENTS/ENGINE_<
    devicepack name
    >/tmp/input/inventory
  6. Cut the .historyFile.inventory from the following locations in the source LocalController and paste them in the corresponding folders [created in step 5] in the destination LocalControllers:
    /opt/CA/CAMM/COMPONENTS/ENGINE_<
    devicepack name
    >/tmp/input/performance
    /opt/CA/CAMM/COMPONENTS/ENGINE_<
    devicepack name
    >/tmp/input/inventory
    Perform steps 4 through 6 before the next poll. After the poll, the tmp, input, performance, and inventory folders are created automatically and the previous history files are downloaded causing unwanted memory usage.
  7. Select the moved Engine in the Manage Device Packs tab and click Start.
