  1. Using a web browser, go to the ESD site .
    When prompted, provide the BMC ESD FTP site user ID and password. Obtain these from the Installation System web page . A BMC Support Central logon credentials are required to access this information.
  2. Download the most recent version of the Installation System image file (bmcozi-vvrmm-image.bin) and the decompression job (inst_dcmp_sample_jcl.txt).
    To determine the version number (vrmm), see the most recent Installation System release notes on any product page on Support Central .
