You acquire the software for the Multicast Manager, in one of two ways:

  • From the installation CD/DVD-ROM.

    Insert the CD/DVD-ROM into the optical drive of the host system. “Procedures for CD/DVD-ROMs” on page 93 describes how to access the optical drive for various operating systems.

    When you insert the installation CD/DVD, several minutes might pass between the InstallShield preparation screen and the VMware Smart Assurance splash screen/installation dialog boxes. Be patient. Do not eject/reinsert the CD/DVD to start a second install process.

  • From the VMware online support website.

    Go to the VMware online support website and download the installation file that is specific to your platform.

    You install each product in one of two ways: CLI mode, or Unattended mode.
