Configuring LANDesk cores

To enable Process Manager to initiate LANDesk Management Suite actions, you need to provide the credentials for the LANDesk core servers you will be accessing in your workflows. You configure these settings using Process Manager's Database Utility. Once you have created and saved these settings, any cores you've defined will be selectable from the Attributes window when you include LDMS actions in your workflows. Only those cores defined here will be accessible to LANDesk actions.

Using the Database Utility, you can add cores, edit their credentials, or remove them from the list.  

To define a LANDesk core
  1. Start the Database Utility and enter your username, password, the database server, and the database name.
  2. Click Test Connection to verify that you are able to connect to the database.
  3. Click Configure and restart services.
  4. Click the LANDesk Management Suite Cores tab.
  5. Click Add, and enter a display name and core machine name.
    Note: The core name is displayed in the Network View in the LDMS Console, and the Display name you provide here is used when manually mapping fields (instead of autogenerating them) when you create a Database listener that will monitor the LDMS core (see "Database event listener").
  6. Enter the core username (domain\username) and password.
  7. Click OK to save the credentials for the new core.
  8. Click OK to save the new core settings and restart the service.
  9. Click OK to close the service restarted message box.
  10. Click Close.

The LANDesk core will now be selectable from the dialog box when defining the core credential set for LANDesk workflow actions in Process Designer.
