StepActionAdditional Information
1.Prepare an application for installationNone.
2.Compress the adapter components for Identity Request Management

The AZ Compression utility is used for packaging the adapter components that Identity Request Management will use. This utility restricts and validates the folder structure that must be maintained to proceed with the compression.

Ensure that the folder structure described in this topic is observed before running the AZ compression utility.

3.Import the sample data when installingBefore starting to install or upgrade BMC Service Request Management, set the BMC.Asset data set accessibility to "writable." This is required if you want to import the sample data during installation. If you do not do this, an error is generated when the BMC Service Request Management installer attempts to import the sample data.
4.Verify the RPC socket number

Identity Request Management uses the RPC socket to communicate with the BMC Remedy AR System server. The default socket that is used by Identity Request Management is 390685. Before you run the installation wizard, you must verify that this socket is not in use by either the BMC Remedy AR System server or by any other application on the computer where the BMC Remedy AR System server is installed. If it is in use, you must reserve another socket. Verify the RPC socket in use.

5.Install Adobe Flash Player

You must install Adobe Flash Player on every client computer that accesses the application. Otherwise, errors can occur when viewing data visualization fields.

You can download Adobe Flash Player from the Adobe website.

6.Temporarily deactivate BMC Remedy Encryption SecurityIf you activated BMC Remedy Encryption Security on the BMC Remedy AR System server, you must deactivate it before you install a product. Installing a product on an encrypted BMC Remedy AR System server is not supported. After completing the installation, you can reactivate BMC Remedy Encryption Security.
