How to Install the Remote DSM Explorer on 12.8fp1



When pushing the 12.8 DSM Explorer package via Software Delivery to a 12.8fp1 agent machine,

it tries to install the 12.8GA software delivery agent as a prerequisite:


This causes problems since CAF gets stopped and has to be manually restarted for the install to complete.



There is no 12.8FP1 DSM Explorer package, but as a workaround you can right click on the Explorer package and select  New -> Software Package Version:


Enter a different name or version and click ok. Find the unsealed package in the Software Library and expand its procedures and procedure dependencies:


Right click and delete the "CA DSM Agent + Software delivery Plugin Instal" procedure dependency:


Then right on the package and seal it and it will deploy without the agent dependency.
