Installing BEA Tuxedo on UNIX Systems Using Console-Mode Installation

The following sections describe how to install BEA Tuxedo using console-mode installation:


What Is Console-Mode Installation?

Console-mode installation is the text-based method of executing the BEA Installation program. It can be run only on UNIX systems and is intended for UNIX systems with non-graphics consoles. Console-mode installation offers the same capabilities as graphics-based installation


Before You Start

If you are upgrading from BEA WebLogic Enterprise or BEA Tuxedo 9.1 or earlier software, see Upgrading the BEA Tuxedo System to Release 10.0 and follow the instructions given there. Then return here to continue your BEA Tuxedo installation.


Starting Console-Mode Installation

To start the console-mode installation process, follow these steps:

  1. Select a UNIX system that meets the hardware and software requirements described in BEA Tuxedo 10.0 Platform Data Sheets.
  2. Log in to the UNIX system as the BEA Tuxedo administrator.
  3. Ensure that you have enough free space for the BEA Tuxedo installation.
  4. For disk space requirements, see BEA Tuxedo 10.0 Platform Data Sheets. For important disk space allocation information, see File and Database Management and Disk Space Allocation.

  5. If installing BEA Tuxedo by downloading from the BEA Web site:
    1. Go to and download the BEA Tuxedo 10.0 installation file specific to your platform.
    2. Go to the directory where you downloaded the installer and invoke the installation procedure by entering the following command:
    3. prompt> sh filename.bin -i console

      where filename is the name of the BEA Tuxedo installer file.

  6. If installing BEA Tuxedo from the product software DVD:
    1. Mount the DVD as a filesystem and insert the BEA Tuxedo DVD into the CD/DVD drive.
    2. Go to the top-level directory of the mounted DVD.
    3. Invoke the installation procedure by entering the following command:
    4. prompt> sh filename.bin -i console

      where filename is the name of the BEA Tuxedo installer file specific to your platform. For more information see, Tuxedo 10.0 Installation Binary Files.

  7. Proceed to Running Console-Mode Installation.


Running Console-Mode Installation

To complete the console-mode installation process, which is currently available in English and Japanese, respond to the prompts in each section with one of the following actions.

Congratulations! Your installation of the BEA Tuxedo software is complete!
