Deployment engine only upgrade

This topic explains how to upgrade the deployment engine only for BMC Release Package and Deployment (RPD) 5.0 on Windows and Linux.
  1. Start the installation program:
    • To install the product with administrator privileges, navigate to RLMinstallationFolder\RLM\Disk1, and run the following command: setup.cmd.
    • To install the product as a normal user, double-click setup.cmd.
    1. Log in as a root user, and navigate to RLM/Disk1.
    2. To make the installation file executable, run the following command: chmod -R +x . 
    3. To start the installation program, run the following command: ./
  2. On the first page of the BMC Release Lifecycle Management installation wizard, click Next.
  3. On the license agreement page, select I agree to the terms of the license agreement, and click Next.

  4. On the Directory Selection page where the directory of the previously installed version of RPD is displayed, click Next.

  5. On the Destination Problem page, click Next.

  6. On the Installation Type page, select the appropriate option:

    • Installer is started with root privileges so perform full installation: Installs the solution as an administrator or a root user.
    • Install solution files and configurations. Do not perform tasks that require special rights: Installs the solution as a normal user.


      • If you are a normal user without administrator or root privileges, and you select the first option, your installation might not complete successfully. For a successful product installation, specify the installation directory to which you have access (for example, your user home directory).
      • If you select the second option, you can install the solution as a normal user without administrator or root privileges, but you cannot register the product components as services.Therefore, the services related to the deployment engine, dispatcher, RPD API, Apache server, and PostgreSQL database server may not start automatically after you restart the computer. However, you can register these components later. To do this, see instructions in the RLMhome/README_special_configuration file (where RLMhome is your installation directory).
  7. Click Next.
  8. On the features selection page, only the Install BMC Release Package and Deployment Engine 5.0.00 check box is selected. The other options are grayed-out, because you upgrade to the latest 5.0 version of the products that were previously installed on your computer—no new components will be added. Click Next.
  9. On the Installation Preview page, verify the details of your installation, such as installation path, selected features, and total disk space that will be used, and click Install. The following services will be upgraded with the engine:

    • Engine
    • API
    • Dispatcher
  10. (Optional) To see the installation log, click View Log.
