This page only contains a summary of the installation process. Please see the IBM Endpoint Manager Installation Guide for more details.

In order to install a production copy of IBM Endpoint Manager (IEM, also known as TEM), you first need to have purchased a license from IBM or from an authorized reseller. Click here if you would like to try an evaluation version of IEM.

 

Part 1: Endpoint Manager Installation Requirements

Before installing TEM, you need to make sure that you have an "install computer" that is used to create the private keys, create the installers, and run the Console (often this computer is your workstation or the Server computer). You also need a server computer that meets all of the requirements. For more information, see Endpoint Manager system requirements.

For more detailed installation or administration information, refer to the product documentation:

 

Part 2: Creating the License Certificate

Before you can use IEM, you need to create the Private Key (license.pvk) and installation masthead (masthead.afxm) for security and license reasons. For more information about licenses, see Managing licenses.

You can download the latest version of IEM from here: http://support.bigfix.com/bes/install/downloadbes.html. Note that 'n.n.nnnn.n' is the version of the BES installer. For example, BigFix-BES-n.n.nnnn.n.exe.

Before installing IEM, see this topic.
