Those settings are for actually executing jobs, they do not affect the display (and if you have "Control-M Security" set to "off" on the Control-M Server then they will have no effect anyway). To control what the user can see in the display use the Tools/Authorizations/Users (or Groups) from your st...

You can ask BMC to add you to their "patch alert" mailing list (e.g. the new patch for Control-M Server was released last week - 8.02).

Also, if you go to the bmc.com site, click support and login and use the EPD option then you can see all the latest release/patch levels.

The only time I've seen this happen was after applying patches on the Agent. Even then it was just a case of chmodding the value back to the correct one to fix the issue permanently.

I'd open a case with BMC for this.

You only need to make the second value unique, i.e. 7005 & 7007 (instead of the defaults 7005 & 7006). You'll also need to change the EM port from 13075 (simply move it on to 13076).

There is pobably a 'cleverer' way to do (and if BMC are reading then it would nice if they could expand the range of system defined variables provided by the Control-M Server) but I do the following - Just after midnight I run a shell script (my Control-M server is Unix-based) and I set up a load of...

Download all the tables via the Table Manager and save all the tables in one local file. Then open the file and do a count on a tag like </JOB>. This tag should only appear once per job, so a count of this should tell you how many jobs you have. You could also do a serach on "Dummy" and this would t...

The install is a lot easier (with the PostGreSQL). Some of the housekeeping tasks can be spun-off from the User Daily and User Daily is now a lot quicker. The big difference is on the Admin side, mass updates are much more easier to do (e.g. you can replace any field and use substrings). The Job Def...

This can be done automatically if you have a recent version of Control-M. If you only have version 6.3.1 or earlier then - 1. Save the %%ORDERID and %%JOBNAME via DO Set-Var and FORCE another job in. 2. The FORCED job should have this on the CMDLINE - ctmpsm -LISTSYSOUT %%YOUR_ORDERID | mailx -s "ER...

If you just need a spreadsheet then the CCM will allow you to export the Agents list (well, actually all connected components) to an xls file.

Once you upgrade an Agent and point it at the new server then the CCM should - sooner or later - recognise the migrated Agent automatically.

Windows error codes can actually mean anything - it's one of the "really bad" things about Windows.

However, 32 as a standard often means that the file you want to use is being used by another process.

To enforce the server security you must switch it on via Option 5 in the "CONTROL-M System Parameters" panel. In general these settings should be the same as on the Enterprise Manager, the reason you have places to do what is essentially the same task is that the products were developed seperately. ...

There is another step that is sometimes necessary - on your Control-M Server go to ctm_server/data. Inside that directory is the AGSTAT directory, where all the Agent info is kept. Alongside the AGSTAT directory is a directory called AGSTAT_RJX and this is where the remote agent definitions are kept...
