4.4 What's Next?

You are now ready to launch Guardian. If you are running Guardian on a version of WebLogic Server earlier than 10.0, you need to deploy the Guardian Agent in the WebLogic Server Administration Server. For more information, see "Deploy the Guardian Agent" in the Oracle Guardian User's Guide.

If you are upgrading Guardian from a previous release, you might want to run the Update Wizard prior to launching Guardian. The Update Wizard, which is available from the Guardian user interface, connects to My Oracle Support. You are prompted to enter your My Oracle Support username and password. You are then presented with a list of product updates that you may download and install. For information about running the Update Wizard, see "Updates and Upgrades" in Oracle Guardian User's Guide.
