Step 3: Install the product (database and application)

An Automation Console deployment consists of two components: database and application. The TrueSight Automation Console supports PostgreSQL as the database. 

You can install the database by using the executables provided on the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site (recommended for demo or test environments), or use an existing PostgreSQL instance in your environment (recommended for production environments).


Install the Stack Manager tool.

Using a single script in the Stack Manager tool, install the database first, and then the application server.

Install using one of these modes:

Installing in the interactive mode – Directly provide inputs on the command line.

Installing silently – Create an inputs file with the required inputs and then use the file for installing the product on any number of servers.

What next?

After successfully installing the product, configure the connectors to integrate with BMC Discovery and TrueSight Orchestration.
