SOI and EEM are installed on the same server. The new version of EEM has been installed on another server. How do we point / configure SOI to use the new EEM install?


Original(Current) EEM Server:

  1. Logon to the EEM UI.
  2. Choose the SSA-<Current Host> Application
  3. Login as the "EiamAdmin" user
  4. Click on the Configure folder tab
  5. Click on the EEM Server link
  6. Click on the Export Application link
  7. Click on the Export button
  8. A File downloads, please save this file.
  9. Logout from EEM
  10. Unzip above saved file, it will have .xml file.

On New EEM Server:

  1. Copy the above .xml to new EEM server
  2. Open SSA-<current>.xml file and modify any entries SSA-<current> to new desired application name like SSA-<new_hostname> or leave them as it is.

    Open command prompt

  3. CD to \\Program Files\CA\SharedComponents\iTechnology
  4. Run below command...

    safex -h <New EEM Host> -u EiamAdmin -P <password> -f "<above xml file path>"

    Note: If above command successfully excuted, then you will be able to see the Application Instance created under new EEM.

  5. Update 'SamUI\conf\jaas.config' with new EEM server host.
  6. Update \SOI_HOME\tomcat\registry\topology\physical\node0\sor\ with new EEM Host.
  7. Run "registryloader" from \tomcat\registry.
  8. Restart both SOI Manager and UI services.

Note: If there is a password change, follow the steps in SOI Implementation guide, page 131.
