3. Installation

  1. Extract the supplied zip file to a suitable location. You will need about 1.5 GB of disk space for the extracted files and substantially more for the installed files.

  2. Navigate to the directory containing the extracted files and run TSM for VE installer.exe.

  3. Fill in the requested information in the form that is displayed:

    If you wish to install the vCenter server plugin, you should check the box for that option and provide details of an administrative account on the vCenter server. This account is only used to register the TSM for Virtual Environments vCenter plugin. Hovering over each item on the form will give more information on that item. Help takes you to this page.

  4. Once you have filled in the information, click Install. The installer does several things:

    • Installs or updates the TSM client if required.
    • Installs TSM for Virtual Environments.
    • Configures the above for use.
  5. The installer will take some time to complete. Once it is, you will see a message reminding you of the required firewall holes.

  6. If a reboot is required, the installer will ask you if you want to reboot now or later.
