By using the BMC Application Management Console interface, besides the Console itself, you can update all components configured in it:

    • MultiExcerpt named 'varCompRUColl' was not found
    The multiexcerpt named 'varCompRUColl' was not found. Please check the page name and MultiExcerpt name used in the MultiExcerpt Include macro.
  • Real User Analyzer

  • Performance Analytics Engine

  • Real User Monitor

Use the Console component as a single location to update other components at once without the need of updating each of them separately. This applies both to updating the components within one version and upgrading them from one version to another.

Notes

BMC recommends that you update all components by using the Console interface, not by using the Analyzer and Collector component interfaces.

When you update the product from version 1.3.00 (or earlier) to 2.5.00, you must update Analyzer and Collector components by using their web interfaces (Administration > Device status > Device update).

Before upgrading the system, review the known and corrected issues on installation and upgrade.

Warning

When you update the product from version 2.0.00 to 2.5.00, BMC recommends that you update the Console first, and then — update all other components.

Performance Analytics Engine 2.5 will not work with the Console 2.6. You must update Performance Analytics Engine to the version 2.6 when you are updating the Console to the 2.6 version.

 Users with the Administrator or Security role can obtain and install all necessary update files without contacting a BMC Support representative. These updates can consist of minor and critical code updates or new features for the following update types:

  • Firmware
  • License
  • Geolocation database

This section provides the following information and instructions about updating the system:
