Downloading the Smart IT installation files


You obtain the product installation files by downloading them from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) website. Your ability to access product pages on the EPD website is determined by the license entitlements purchased by your company.

Before you begin

This topic is part of the Preparing for installation of Smart IT process. The previous step in this process is to complete the Smart IT installation worksheet.


When to download a service pack or patch

For a fresh installation or an upgrade, check the Release notes to determine the latest update and then download the following:

  • The latest release, service pack, or patch (if available). For service packs and patches, the Smart IT installer will install or upgrade the full product. 
  • Any hotfixes that are available for known issues.

If you sign up for  Proactive Notification , you will be notified about new service packs or patches for applying the latest changes, as well as bulletins about critical fixes.  

Installation files

The following table provide links to the page in the EPD website that contains the installation files for this product. From the EPD page you can select and download the installation files for your platform. Access to the EPD website requires that you provide your BMC Support credentials.

To download the patch from the EPD site

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

    Note

    On Microsoft 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.

  2. Login to the  BMC Electronic Product Download site .

  3. At the login prompt, enter your user ID and password, and click Submit.
  4. On the Export Compliance and Access Terms page, provide the required information, agree to the terms of the agreements, and click Continue.
  5. If you are accessing this site for the first time, create an EPD profile to specify the languages and platforms that you want to see, per the EPD site help; otherwise, skip to step 6.

  6. Verify that the correct profile is displayed for your download purpose, and select the Licensed Products tab.

  7. Select a product from the list of available products. For example, Remedy with Smart IT.
  8. Select the required version number from the Version field, the required platform from the Platform field, and click Go.
    1. Products—Displays the product files and service pack files available for download.
    2. Patches—Displays the patch files available for download.
    3. License Information—Displays the files related to licenses.
    4. Documentation—Displays the Online Technical Documentation Portal links and the offline zip files of the documentation available for download.
  9. Select the check boxes next to the installation files, documentation, and (if available) associated prerequisites and technical bulletins, that you need to download. For example, Remedy with Smart IT to show the available versions.
  10. Click Download (FTP) or Download Manager
    1. Download (FTP) places the selected items in an FTP directory, and the credentials and FTP instructions are sent to you in an email message.
    2. Download Manager enables you to download multiple files consecutively and to resume an interrupted download if the connection drops.
      This method requires a one-time installation of the Akamai NetSession client program on the target computer and is usually the faster and more reliable way to transfer files. A checksum operation is used to verify file integrity automatically.

To verify the files

Locate the files you downloaded and verify the following MD5 checksum results before installation:

  • md5sum.txt
  • sha256sum.txt

Tip

You can use any MD5 checksum tool to verify the checksum results.

    I am a bit confused, the patches mentioned under Installation files do not seem to be available in the EPD under version 18.05. Is this maybe a translation issue from earlier versions?

      By translation I mean conversion from earlier version.

      Peter, I checked in EPD and see these these patches in 1805. Could you open it on another browser and if these files are still unavailable for you, open a Support Case for additional help.

        OK, I see it now. I was looking for the patches manually by visiting the EPD, not using the direct link.

    Peter, when you log into EPD, then click on Product Patches in the menu and then search for "Remedy with Smart IT", you should see the patches for the 18.05 version of Smart IT. Please note that the patches for Remedy AR System, ITSM applications (incl. SRM, SLM) are also in the Smart IT 18.05 folder, because the patches to these other components are only required, when using Smart IT.
