    Downloading the installation utility and the product files

    This section provides information for downloading BMC PATROL for JBoss Application Server 3.0.00 from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) website.

    Note

    If you have previously downloaded other BMC products, you might have an older version of the installation utility on your hard drive. BMC recommends that you use the latest version of Installation Utility. To download the latest version of the installation utility for this service pack, perform the following steps.

    1. Create a directory in which to place the downloaded files.

      Note

      On Windows computers, ensure that the directory is only one level into the directory structure. The EPD package creates a directory in the temporary directory when you extract the files, and the directory that contains the installation image should not be in a directory deeper than two levels into the directory structure.

    3. At the logon prompt, enter your user ID and password, and click Submit.
