Home  Previous  Next

Installing EMC Disk Arrays KM for PATROL is an automated process managed by a wizard. The wizard goes through the necessary steps to install EMC Disk Arrays KM for PATROL and all files associated with it. You are simply prompted for the product's folder location and the product/components to install.

Browse to the bmc_products folder where the files have been extracted (both EMC Disk Arrays KM for PATROL and the Common Installer).

On Windows: Launch the setup.exe program
On UNIX: Launch the script

importantSince the installation of a PATROL Agent on a EMC Disk Array is not permitted, the PATROL Agent needs to be installed on a different machine (Windows, Linux, or UNIX) than the one on which the monitoring of disk array(s) will be performed. However, make sure that both machines are connected to the same network and are able to communicate through the WBEM protocol.
