Patch 1 for version 3.5.00: 3.5.00.001

This patch is released to enable compatibility between BMC Service Resolution 3.5.00, BMC TrueSight Presentation Server 10.1.00 and BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management 10.0.500.

The following topics are provided:

Important

  • The BMC Service Resolution 3.5 Patch 1 installer is a full installer package and need not be installed on top of BMC Service Resolution 3.5.
  • If you are on BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management version 10.5 and later, to use BMC Service Resolution, you need to enable BMC Service Resolution features without installing it. See Enabling BMC Service Resolution on TrueSight Operations Management

Before you begin

Installing supported product versions

Before you install BMC Service Resolution 3.5 Patch 001, you must first install the supported version of BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management/BMC ProactiveNet. See Supported products and versions.

Installing BMC CMDB Extensions

If you are integrating Infrastructure Management with BMC Atrium CMDB, you must install the BMC CMDB Extensions and components before you configure the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server to integrate with the CMDB. Install BMC CMDB Extensions on the same computer where BMC Atrium CMDB is installed. See  Installing BMC CMDB Extensions in the Infrastructure Management online documentation.
