To download the files
Create a directory in which to place the downloaded files.
On Windows computers, ensure that the directory is only one level into the directory structure. The EPD package creates a directory in the temporary directory when you extract the files, and the directory that contains the installation image should not be in a directory deeper than two levels into the directory structure.
At the logon prompt, enter your user ID and password, and click Submit.
On the Export Compliance and Access Terms page, provide the required information, agree to the terms of the agreements, and click Continue.
If you are accessing this site for the first time, create an EPD profile to specify the languages and platforms you want to see, per the EPD site help otherwise, skip to step 6.
Verify that the correct profile is displayed for your download purpose, and select the Product Patches tab.
Expand BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management or BMC Cloud Extension Pack to show its versions, and then expand the version, platform, and language to show its downloadable files.
Select the files that you want to download.
Click Download (FTP) or Download Manager:
Download (FTP) places the selected items in an FTP directory, and the credentials and FTP instructions are sent to you in an e-mail message.
Download Manager enables you to download multiple files consecutively, and to resume an interrupted download if the connection drops.
This method requires a one-time installation of the Akami NetSession Client program on the target computer and is usually the faster and more reliable way to transfer files. A checksum is used to verify file integrity automatically.
You can also click on a download file and be prompted to save it.
