Step 3: Install TrueSight Vulnerability Management

A TrueSight Vulnerability Management deployment consists of three nodes: database, Elasticsearch, and application. TrueSight Vulnerability Management currently supports PostgreSQL as a database. You can install the database either by using the executables provided on the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site, or you can use an existing PostgreSQL instance in your environment for the application.

Description Procedure

Install the database, Elasticsearch, and application in the following order using a single script contained in the Stack Manager tool, which is shipped with the product:

  1. Database
  2. Elasticsearch
  3. Application

Install in one of the following modes:

  • Installing in the interactive mode: In this mode, you can use one of the following deployment methods:
    • You create input files and then use them for installation. You can generate the input files on any of the computers where you want to install database, Elasticsearch, or application and then copy it to the required computers as and when needed, or you can generate it on the required computers.
    • Directly provide inputs on the command line during installation of the database, Elasticsearch, and application.
  • Installing silently: In this mode, you create an options file containing all the required inputs and then use this file for installing the product on multiple computers in your network.
