Is there anyway to update the serverclass.conf automatically ?

We are using 6.2.1. Is there anyway to update the serverclass.conf automatically?

Example: If any host got decommissioned, it needs to delete from serverclass.conf (automatically update). And if any new host is added, automatically it needs to add in serverclass.conf.

So, that the manual intervention will get reduce. Please suggest.

Hi chskm,
it's possible to automatically insert a server in a serverclass only if you choose as a filter:

  • a technology (e.g. Windows),
  • an IP range in whitelist (10.10.10.*),
  • an hostname with * (myhost*).

It isn't possible to automatically remove an host.

Bye.

Thanks for the reply cusello.

We can remove hosts automatically, by creating some automation scripts. But, according to my knowledge it is tough to add a server by identifying it automatically.

Please advise how to implement that.

It depends by your apps: if you can create a serverclass, for example, with all the windows machines or an hostname (myserver*), you can automatically add a server to it, probably the only way is a script also for adding a server.
