Completing the installation spreadsheet
Before you start installing or upgrading the products and components, use the attached installation spreadsheet to gather the installation parameter values that are required by the installers. During upgrade, most of the fields in the installer panels are either skipped or pre-populated. However, you could use the spreadsheet if you want to make any changes to the editable fields.
You must know the actual logon credentials to a server or database to complete installations. BMC installers are not integrated with BMC Remedy Single Sign-On, SSL, or any other authentication method. For example, you cannot use a smart card scan to authenticate a user to perform installations of BMC products.
Consult the following topics for information that is helpful to understanding the installer prompts:
