Performing the BMC Digital Workplace installation

This topic provides an overview of how to perform the BMC Digital Workplace installation.

Before you begin

Complete the steps in Preparing for installation of BMC Digital Workplace.

Before you proceed with the installation, remember these tips:

  • To protect data, use HTTPS to communicate with the Digital Workplace server. You can do so through a load balancer or reverse proxy, or by enabling HTTPS on the BMC Digital Workplace server.
  • If using an Oracle database for your installation, verify that USERS and TEMP tablespaces exist. If they do not, create them. The installer creates the user schemas that reference these two tablespaces by default.
