1.Copy the installation package to the host where BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management - IBM DS3000 DS4000 DS5000 Series Storage Monitoring needs to be installed
2.Extract the installation package as appropriate for your operating system. The package is extracted to the bmc_products directory on the current host.
3.From the bmc_products directory, run the installation utility for your operating system:
(UNIX or Linux)
(Microsoft Windows) RunSilentInstall.exe

The package is installed on the current host. If the package includes a BMC PATROL Agent, the agent sends a configuration request by passing its tags to BMC ProactiveNet Central Monitoring Administration, via the Integration Service. Central Monitoring Administration evaluates policies that match the tags, determines the final configuration to be applied, and sends the configuration information back to the agent. Monitoring is based on the configuration information received by the agent.

If no policy matches the tags associated with the agent, the agent does not receive configuration information. The agent does not begin monitoring until a matching policy is created.
