This is a commercial app. Closed source
- Installation (workaround needed)
-> Choose planning domain and create a single job
-> Choose Monitoring domain and order a job, run it and check output/log
-> Open Configuration Manager (CCM) and check agents status
What does not
- Application runs very slow
- Screen blinks constantly
- temporary freezes
Procedure for installation:
I) In order to avoid Built-in CScript.exe to be used (installer tries to determine version by running cmd with no params - built-in version doesn't give this info), go to /opt/wine-XXXX/lib / /opt/wine-XXXX/lib64 and rename cscript.exe in both directories
(As I'm using wine-devel package, XXXX in my case is devel - replace your's according to your distro)
Note: This should not be needed, but I faced problems (wine insisted to use built-in instead of native cscript)
II) Create a new wineprefix (64 bits);
II) Open winetricks, select created prefix and install wsh57
III) Go to your prefix directory and copy cscript.exe from syswow64 to system32. If you're using a default prefix, execute the following:
cp ../syswow64/cscript.exe ./
IV) Unpack your Control-M EM Client (DRNFT) and run the installer:
V) Follow Installer steps. At some point, it will "freeze" when it says "Add permission to directories and files"
Go to terminal, and locate a "cmd" process without arguments and kill it. You can use this command:
ps -ef | grep cmd | grep -v grep | grep -v "internal_se"
This seems to be an embeeded "cmd" executable copied by installer, however it never ends. As this just adjust file permissions (calling icacls),
there's no huge impact killing it (except security).
VI) Repeat step V until installer finishes (note: keep dragging the window with your mouse to a non visible area to force screen refresh)
Procedure for running:
A) run winetricks again and install the following packages:
B) Under BMC installation (~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/BMC Software/Control-M EM/INSTANCE_NAME/bin - Replace INSTANCE_NAME with the value filled during install)
edit emccm.exe.config and remove the duplicated
C) Run emwa.exe using wine
What was not tested
- Control-M Reports
- Creating or running CM jobs (AFT/MFT, SAP, Database, etc)
As pointed, EMWA itself runs very slow. So, this is not recommended for a production use.
EMCCM runs ok.
