Preparing for installation of Digital Workplace

Complete the following tasks:

Task Action Additional information
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 64-bit Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 8 or 11, or install OpenJDK 11.

Install JRE or OpenJDK 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 Install the ITSM integration patch.

Before you install BMC Digital Workplace, install the BMC Digital Workplace ITSM integration patch on your BMC Remedy ITSM server. This patch enables BMC Remedy ITSM to work with BMC Digital Workplace. Without this patch, timelines, email notifications, and social features will not work in BMC Digital Workplace.

Note: If you have installed BMC Remedy ITSM 18.08 Patch 1, and also downloaded and installed the Remedy ITSM Version 18.08.00 Patch 001 Deployment Management Package for BMC Digital Workplace 18.11.00 patch, you do not need to download and install the BMC Digital Workplace ITSM Integration Patch Version 18.05.00 patch from the BMC Digital Workplace installation files.

7 (Linux) Install 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.
