Install a Windows Client

The Service Manager Windows Client is mainly for Service Manager administrators and implementers. HPE recommends that you use the web client for end users.

Note The Windows Client installer also installs the Client Configuration Utility in the following directory: <Service Manager installation path>\Client\ClientConfiguration. To run the utility, double-click the confutil.bat file in this directory.

You can install a Service Manager Windows Client (including the Client Configuration Utility) locally or on a network share where multiple users run from the shared client installation. Click a task below to view instructions for installing the Windows Client on a local machine or on a network share.

Caution If you share a Windows Client on a network share, you run the risk of running out of user licenses or network system resources to run the client.

The Windows Client is now installed. Next, you need to define a connection from the Windows Client to the Service Manager Server.
