I am in the process of trying to intergrate SMS with SD CMDB. Does anyone know of any white papers or documentation on how to do this process? I am new at intergrating any external application with SD.
Hi Gail, Indeeed, Anda is right. We cannot speak about SMS integration with OVSD in the same manner with OVO or NNM. You have to choose one of the following options: 1. To import data from SMS database via data exchange described by Anda or, 2. Create an interface between SMS and OVSD to carried out information stored in SMS database( based on a link defined in OVSD able to retrieve detailed information about HW/SW configuration items discovered by SMS in your network. This solution has some advantages. (eg. avoid creation of a huge number of relations between HW and SW CIs installed on). Best regrads, Dan
Yes, you will need to make connection via ODBC connect. Win XP has driver for SQL Server - use it. Set configuration parameters: server name, username, and password. Select database name from list that will be provided. You will need user with select rights to SMS database.
