This documentation supports the 20.02 version of Remedy Deployment.
To view an earlier version, select the version from the Product version menu.

Downloading the installation files

This topic explains how to obtain the files that you need for installation or upgrade from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site. To understand which files you are entitled to download based on the licenses that you purchased, see Licensing overview  in the BMC Remedy AR System documentation. 

You can install/upgrade Remedy applications such as BMC Remedy ITSM Suite (ITSM), BMC Service Request Management (SRM), and BMC Service Level Management (SLM) from the previous version by first installing the 18.05 version (using the 18.05 installers) and then applying the latest deployment packages.

When to install a full release or download a patch

For a fresh installation or an upgrade, check the release notes to determine the latest update and then download the following:

  • The latest release   
    When you are performing a fresh installation or upgrade, the installer will install or upgrade the full product. 

  • The deployment package
    When you are performing an application installation or upgrade, the deployment package will install or upgrade the relevant application.
  • Any patches that are available for the release
    Patches are not full installers and must be applied over the latest full installation (release). You must then apply the latest patch available.

  • Any hotfixes that are available for known issues

If you sign up for  Proactive notification , you will be notified about new releases or patches for applying the latest changes, as well as bulletins about critical fixes.

Installation files

The following table provides direct links to the page in the EPD website that contains the installation files to download products in the Remedy ITSM Suite. Before downloading the installers from the EPD, ensure that you can log on to http://www.bmc.com/available/epd.html by using your Support user ID and password. You might also be prompted to complete the Export Compliance Form. If you are accessing this site for the first time, create a new EPD profile to specify the languages and platforms that you want to download. For assistance with EPD, see EPD site help  .

You can also review the license information for each product on the same page. This list does not represent the order in which you must run the installers. For the order, see Installing or Upgrading.

To verify the installation files

Run the virus scan on the downloaded installation files to ensure that they are virus free. You can scan the installation files by using any anti-virus software.

Locate the files you downloaded and verify the SHA256SUM checksum results before installation. To verify that the installers are not corrupted during the downloading process, calculate the checksum value of each Remedy component and check if it matches with the SHA256SUM value provided by BMC.

      In the "Remedy AR System server" section, under Remedy Mid Tier Components, Tomcat and Crystal Reports are both listed as components that are installed. Based on information on this page, https://docs.bmc.com/docs/brid2002/restricted-statement-of-direction-compatibility-matrix-925014933.html, those components have been removed. Which is correct?

        Hi Thad,

        Thank you for your feedback on the documentation. The components Tomcat and Crystal Reports have been removed from the Remedy AR server installer.

        We have updated the topic accordingly.
