You acquire the software for the VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager, VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager, VMware Smart Assurance MPLS Management Suite, VMware Smart Assurance Server Manager, and VMware Smart Assurance Network Protocol Management Suite in one of two ways:

  • From the installation CD/DVD-ROM.

    Insert the CD/DVD-ROM into the optical drive of the host system. Appendix C, “Procedures for CD/DVD-ROMs,” 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 three ways: Wizard mode, CLI mode, or Unattended mode.
