How to configure the SDNotifier in Spectrum to start automatically

Environment

Release : Any

Component : Spectrum integration with Service Desk

Resolution

1. Log into the SpectroSERVER system where SDNotifier is running

2. Make a copy of the $SPECROOT/lib/SDPM/partslist/ALARMNOTIFIER.idb and name it SDNOTIFIER.idb

3. Edit the SDNOTIFIER.idb file so it looks like the following:

# Processd Install Ticket for SDNotifier
PARTNAME;SDNOTIFIER;
APPNAME;SDNotifier;
WORKPATH;$SPECROOT/Notifier/sd_notifier;
LOGNAMEPATH;$WORKPATH/SD_NOTIFIER.OUT;
#ADMINPRIVS;N;
AUTORESTART;y;
AUTOBOOTSTART;y;
#STATEBASED;N;
NUMPROCS;1; // one per host
RETRYTIMEOUT;600; // 10 minutes
#TICKETUSER;$USER;
RETRYMAX;3;     // 3 retries allowed
STARTPRIORITY;30;
SERVERPROCESS;Y;
#ENV;<var>=<value>;
ARGV;$SPECROOT/Notifier/sd_notifier/SDNotifier<CSEXE>;

4. Restart processd

    a. Log into the system as the user that owns the Spectrum installation

    b. If on Windows, start a bash shell by running "bash -login"

    c. cd to the $SPECROOT/lib/SDPM directory and enter the following command to restart processd:

./processd.pl restart

5. Check to verify SDNotifier is running
