How can I stage packages on the Scalability Server manually without using the network?

Introduction:

The network bandwidth between the Domain Manager and the Scalability Server is not big and therefore using the 'Stage' option is not viable. Is there a way to transfer the packages to an external media and register them to the Scalability Server?

 

Background:

This document details how you can stage multiple packages from the Domain Manager to remote Scalability Servers without using the normal staging job that normally runs between the Domain manager and the scalability server. The document steps you through the export of the packages on the Domain Manager and the import on the remote scalability server. 

 

Environment:

CA Client Automation - All Versions 

 

Instructions:

  1. In the DSM Explorer drill down to Software->Software Package Library->All Software and in the right-pane multi-select the packages that you want to export.

  2. Right click and select the option Export->Library Image.

  3. Specify a temp folder to export the packages to.

  4. Copy this folder to an external media i.e., DVD , thumb drive etc,.

  5. To register the exported packages on the scalability server use the following command for each of the packages on the external media:
    sd_sscmd aregsw {[path=path] [reginfo=reginfo] [logfile=logfile]}

    Ex: sd_sscmd aregsw path=E:\temp reginfo="E:\temp\2AEE15E2-A69F-42BB-8B4F-7315B65B7C9F.arc\reginfo"

    Note: If there are multiple packages write a batch file with sd_sscmd command containing the reginfo path for each package.

  6. Run 'sd_sscmd stagecheck' on the scalability server which will make the domain manager aware of the packages registered on the scalability server.
