Downloading the installation files

You obtain the product installation files by downloading them from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) website. Your ability to access product pages on the EPD website is determined by the license entitlements purchased by your company. To understand which files you are entitled to download, access the license entitlements for your product.

When to download a service pack

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

  • The latest release or service pack (if available).
    For service packs, the installer will install or upgrade the full product. For example, when you install version 8.9.01, it installs version 8.9.00 along with enhancements that were made in 8.9.01 (Service Pack 1).
  • Any hotfixes that are available for known issues

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