Applying a patch

BMC offers all the patches as a deployable package. Applying a package in your environment is easier and faster. You can download and apply the patch in your environment without using an installer.

Ensure the following before you install the patch:

  • You must upgrade Remedy to 18.08.01, as described in 18.08.01: Patch 1 for version 18.08 in the BMC Remedy ITSM Deployment space.
  • Ensure that the AR service, Mid-Tier service, Smart IT service, Mid-Tier file deployer service, and Smart IT file deployer service are running before you apply the patch.
  • Before deploying the patch, BMC recommends to check the ranking for the components. For more information, see Setting the component ranking order before deploying a binary payload in Remedy AR System online documentation
  • (Optional) Capture a snapshot of your application objects. For instructions, see Capturing a snapshot of server application objects .
