Setting up the Barcode Solution environment

Barcode Solution

Barcode Solution provides you a simple and accurate way of gathering and verifying asset information in the field. Before you can use the features of Barcode Solution, you must set up your environment.

See Performing asset management tasks using Barcode Solution

Table: Process for setting up the Barcode Solution environment




Step 1

Configure asset merge settings.

You can specify the merge keys. When a match of a specified key is found during upload, the duplicate resources are automatically merged.

See Configuring asset merge settings

Step 2

Create a synchronization profile.

A synchronization profile lets you determine what data is sent from the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) to a particular handheld device.

See Creating a synchronization profile

Step 3

Install Barcode software on the host computer and on the handheld device.

Barcode software lets you synchronize data between the CMDB and the barcode device.

You install Barcode Manager on the host computers and then use the host computers to install Barcoder on the handheld devices.

See Installing Barcode software on the host computer and on the handheld device

Step 4

Perform initial data synchronization.

Initial synchronization uploads the data from the CMDB to the barcode device. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Synchronization Profiles page, you can specify what data you want to synchronize.
