Upgrade existing Flexera BMC Discovery adapter (Applies to Flexera One ITAM/IT Visibility)

To upgrade your existing Flexera BMC Discovery adapter integration, you need to update the Flexera BMC Discovery staging database and adapter (FnmpADDMStage.exe & FnmpADDMSettings.xml) used to import data from BMC Discovery by integrating with BMC Discovery API.

How to upgrade

  1. Download the attached extended Flexera BMC Discovery adapter BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Tools.zip on the server used for Flexera BMC Discovery integration to import inventory data into Flexera One ITAM & IT Visibility.
  2. Extract the BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Tools.zip to BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Tools
  3. From the extracted BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Tools\SQL folder open ADDM_staging.sql in the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio and SELECT ADDM_Staging database and execute the ADDM_staging.sql to update the Flexera BMC Discovery staging database.
  4. After successful execution, you should see the following two tables
    1. ADDMNetworkDevices_ci (To store Network devices)
    2. ADDMPrinters_ci (To store Printers)

Note: Above two tables must exist for successful Flexera BMC Discovery adapter deployment.

  1. Open the folder where the Flexera FNMPADDMStage.exe tool is deployed.
  2. Create a backup copy of both files used by a configured existing adapter.
    1. FnmpADDMStage.exe
    2. FnmpADDMSettings.xml
  3. Open the FnmpADDMSettings.xml from the extract the folder BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Tools\FnmpADDMStage
  4. Update the connection strings for both BMC Discovery API integration and ADDM_Staging database connection. (you can update these connection strings by copying these connection string from existing FnmpADDMSettings.xml used by existing deployment)
