This topic describes the end-to-end tasks required to install BMC Remedy IT Service Management (ITSM) Suite in a server group. A server group consists of two or more BMC Remedy Action Request (AR) System servers that are designated as part of a group and share the same database. Servers that belong to the same group can provide backup for server operations that are allowed to run on only one server at a time. Critical operations have greater availability, because you can configure any server in the group to back up another server's operations.

There are no installers for Remedy ITSM applications after version 18.05.

This approach results in a significantly faster and easier upgrade.

Installing Remedy ITSM installs BMC Service Desk (includes BMC Incident Management and BMC Problem Management), BMC Asset Management, BMC Change Management, and BMC Knowledge Management. You can use the BMC Remedy ITSM Suite installer to perform the installation by using any of the following options:

  • GUI for installing the complete suite in one go
  • Command line utility to install the suite in phases
  • Command line utility to install in silent mode

After installing Remedy ITSM 18.05, the next step is to install BMC Service Request Management 18.05 and BMC Service Level Management 18.05 and then apply the latest deployment packages.


Before you apply the latest deployment packages, ensure that the 18.05 version of the applications are installed on all servers in the server group
