Preparing for installation of BMC Digital Workplace
Complete the following tasks:
|1||Complete installation worksheets for Digital Workplace.||Before you start installing the products, you must gather information about the parameters that the installer requires for each product. The planning spreadsheet provided in this section helps you gather these parameter values. To avoid installation errors, refer to this spreadsheet when you run the installation.|
|2||Download the BMC Digital Workplace installation files.||This topic explains how to obtain the files that you need for installation from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site.|
|3||Install Oracle JDK or OpenJDK 11|
Install Oracle JDK or OpenJDK 11 on all the servers where you will install BMC Digital Workplace. Set the Java Home path.
|4||Pre-create the database.|
If you have database access restrictions and cannot allow the BMC Digital Workplace installer to create a database, a DBA can create a pre-existing database.
|5||(Linux) Review Requirements for a non-root user to run the installer||If a non-root user will run the installer in a Linux environment, a system administrator must set the needed permissions.|
|6||Apply the deployment package on your Remedy ITSM server|
(For ITSM 18.08 or later) Before you install BMC Digital Workplace, install the BMC Digital Workplace deployment package on your Remedy ITSM server. This package enables BMC Remedy ITSM to work with BMC Digital Workplace. Without this package, timelines, email notifications, and social features will not work in BMC Digital Workplace. For more information, see Applying a deployment package .
(For ITSM 18.05 or earlier) If you are performing a new installation of BMC Digital Workplace, you must also install the BMC Digital Workplace ITSM Integration Patch Version 18.05. For more information, see Installing the ITSM integration patch.
Note: You can skip this step if you are upgrading from a previous version of BMC Digital Workplace and installed the BMC Digital Workplace ITSM Integration Patch Version 18.05.00 patch.
|7||(Linux) Installing the package to launch the UI installer (on Linux).|
On a Linux environment, to invoke the UI installer for installing BMC Digital Workplace, you must download a package containing Xorg libraries.
Hi IDD -
Can someone provide the EPD hyper link for Deployment package and also the installer (both D2P and installer for integration patch).
Regards, Kunal Das
Thanks for your comment, Kunal. The EPD links are available here → Downloading the BMC Digital Workplace installation files.
On EPD site is available only this package: "BMC Digital Workplace Deployment Package Version 19.08.00", but I'm not able to import it into "ITSM Deployment Management Console", the zip file size is 650Kb, are you sure that it is the right package?
Thanks for your comment, Ivan. The file used for Digital Workplace Advanced should be around 20 MB.
Please try using this deep-link to the deployment package → https://www.bmc.com/available/ddl.html?path=/LP/380578/407906&fltk_=H1Xk4lhaAEEB4zdvEUcM1h6T8hJksIsesTplqG41Fye3juWNbvqKNmaB7KaRcDbt
