CA Patch Management

Arrgghhh!! I’ve been working for over a week to try to get the CA Patch Management software installed so that I can evaluate it. A pre-req for it is CA IT Client Management (ITCM) and I cannot get the frakking software to install.

Let me take that back.. I can get it to install, just can’t get the blasted software to actually work.

PM requires ITCM to be up and working, because it needs the web services to work. You can install CM and it doesn’t complain about anything, but the Web portal does absolutely nothing.

Documentation, you say? Sure, there are several thousand pages you can troll thru, but none are of any help whatsoever.

I’ve never been a fan of CA products, and this certainly isn’t helping!
