How to configure a machine to automatically show in Estate Management after a manual software install

If you have manually installed a BMR product (not via the Virtual Appliance), it is still possible to add this system to a VA for management.

Windows:

When installing VIA the suite installer, you can add the IPV4 address of your VA. This will automatically enable your system to show in the Estate Management area of your selected appliance.

If you left this entry blank then you will need to create a user.ini file in the installation directory (usually C:\Program Files\Cristie\CBMR

The contents of the user.ini should be as follows

[VA]
address=<va ip>

Then restart the BMR phone home service and your system will show in the Estate Management section of your chosen VA.

Linux

Create a user.ini file inside /etc/cbmr

The contents of the user.ini should be as follows

[VA]
address=<va ip>

Then restart the BMR phone home service (cristie_bmr_phone_home) and your system will show in the Estate Management section of your chosen VA.
