To download the files

Note

The product files that you download from the BMC Software Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) website might contain some or all of the patches listed on a product's Customer Support web page.

  1. Create a directory in which to place the downloaded files.

    Note

    On Windows computers, ensure that the directory is only one level into the directory structure. The EPD package creates a directory in the temporary directory when you extract the files, and the directory that contains the installation image should not be in a directory deeper than two levels into the directory structure.

  2. Go to the BladeLogic Portal 2.2 download page.

  3. At the login prompt, enter your user ID and password, and click Submit.

  4. On the Export Compliance and Access Terms page, provide the required information, agree to the terms of the agreements, and click Continue.

  5. Make sure the Products tab is selected.

  6. Select the files for the platforms you want to download.

  7. Click Download (FTP).
    The selected items are placed in an FTP directory, and the credentials and FTP instructions are sent to you in an email message. 

Where to go next

Review the requirements for installation and then enable web services in BMC Server Automation, which is a prerequisite to installation. Then proceed to Installing.
