17 Installation Utilities

This chapter provides reference information for Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) installation utilities.

pin_setup

Use this utility to configure the BRM Pipeline Manager.

See "Running the pin_setup Utility".

Note:

This utility does not access the BRM database, so it does not need a pin.conf file.

Important:

Pipeline Configuration Manager is an optional component.

Location

Pipeline_home/bin

where Pipeline_home is the directory where the Pipeline Manager software is installed.

Syntax

pin_setup [-recover_last] [-runone step_name] [-h] [-notee]

Parameters

-recover_last

Restarts the configuration. The configuration begins where it stopped.

Important:

This option recovers from the last point of failure. It does not roll back the changes made by the successful steps.
-runone step_name

Runs the files from a single step directory.

-h

Displays online help for the pin_setup utility.

-notee

Turns off displaying the progress as the utility runs.

Results

The utility records results in two log files in the Pipeline_home/setup/log directory:

  • pin_setup.log: All messages and output from the scripts that the utility runs.

  • steptracker.log: Each step that has been processed.

uninstaller

Use this utility to uninstall the BRM server software, client applications, and optional components from a single machine. If your BRM system is distributed among multiple machines, you must run the uninstaller utility on each machine.

This utility does not remove all BRM files and directories from your system or reverse changes made to your configuration files and database. For a list of files and directories that you must remove manually, see "Uninstalling Optional Components".

Important:

To use the uninstaller on Solaris, you must first install the latest patch for your version of Solaris.

Location

BRM_Home/uninstaller

Syntax

uninstaller  -log BRM_Home/uninstaller/uninst 
             [ + | - | = ]product product_name
             [ + | - | = ]component component_name product_name
             read text_file_name

Parameters

-log BRM_Home/uninstaller/uninst

Logs status and error messages to the uninst log file.

+

Registers the product or component to uninstall.

Points to the product or component to uninstall.

=

Verifies that the product or component is registered for uninstallation.

Commands

  • product product_name

    Uninstalls the specified product. You can only uninstall one product at a time.

    The Infranet.prod file, located in the directory where you downloaded and extracted your BRM software, stores the names of all products installed on your system. product_name must match one of the names in this file.

    For example, to uninstall BRM, type:

    % uninstaller -log BRM_Home/uninstaller/uninst -product Portal_Base
      
    
  • component component_name product_name

    Uninstalls the specified component. You must specify the component name and the parent product.

    The comps directory, located in the directory where you downloaded and extracted your BRM software, lists the names of all components installed on your system. component_name must match one of the file names, minus the extension, in this directory.

    The Infranet.prod file, located in the directory where you downloaded and extracted your BRM software, stores the names of all products installed on your system. product_name must match one of the names in this file.

    For example, to remove the Connection Manager (CM) only, type:

    % uninstaller -log BRM_Home/uninstaller/uninst -component CM Portal_Base
      
    
  • read text_file_name

    Reads the text file and performs any batch operations specified in the text file.

Results

The uninstaller utility doesn't notify you whether it was successful or unsuccessful. You must look in your directory structure to see if your files were removed.
