Downloading the installation utility and the product files

This section provides information for downloading PATROL for Oracle WebLogic 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.
