Installation System Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to install the Installation System multiple times?
No. After installing the Installation System once, you can use it for multiple installations.
Do all mainframe-based BMC components, products, and solutions use the Installation System?
Most of them use the Installation System now, and the remainder will begin using it in the future; implementation will occur in a phased approach. For a list of the currently supported products, see supported products.
When are passwords required?
Passwords are required for running BMC products and solutions, but not for installing them.
Do all BMC Software components, products, and solutions that use the Installation System require passwords?
All require passwords except MainView Explorer, RxD2/FlexTools, and RxD2/Link.
Can the country setting for my terminal cause errors during an installation?
If the terminal uses a non-English alphabet or a translation table, you will get error messages, especially when trying to move past the Select Products panel (BMIPC1A) during installation. Determine whether you are using usermods that will translate BMC installation code to your country's language. The recommended terminal type is 3278.
