This chapter explains how to install and configure the Oracle Tuxedo system on your OpenVMS system.
The topics covered in this chapter include:
|Note:||Before you begin the installation process, you may wish to review the Polycenter product installation utility (PCSI). This utility is used to install Oracle Tuxedo and you should have a working knowledge of its operation.|
Before installing Oracle Tuxedo, you must:
The following sections provide procedures for verifying this information.
Before you install Oracle Tuxedo, you must verify that the machine on which you wish to install Oracle Tuxedo meets the minimum hardware and software requirements.
Use the following procedure to verify your machine meets the requirements.

The person installing Oracle Tuxedo must log on to the machine with the user ID privileges and quotas as listed in Table 2-1
Use the following procedure to verify the user ID privileges.

|Note:||atmi client (to install only the Oracle Tuxedo ATMI client)|
5. The PCSI utility will install the required files. You can monitor the progress of the installation on the screen.
Before you can use Oracle Tuxedo, you must set up your environment using a DCL script named
postinstall. The DCL script performs the following tasks:
vps_daemonif you have requested this process
|Note:||This script must be run each time the machine is rebooted. The Oracle Tuxedo administrator may put the DCL script into the start-up environment so that when the machine is rebooted the script will be executed.|
Before you can use Oracle Tuxedo, you must set several logical names. The OpenVMS operating system allows you to set logical names in either the group table or the system table.
Setting logical names in the group table gives you the ability to run multiple versions of Oracle Tuxedo on the same platform. Subsequent versions of the Oracle Tuxedo system can be installed under different group tables.
To use this method requires that all users who want to invoke Oracle Tuxedo commands must be listed in the group table in which all the required logical names for Oracle Tuxedo reside.
Setting logical names in the system table allows you to give all users of a system access to Oracle Tuxedo. However, subsequent versions of Oracle Tuxedo cannot be installed simultaneously on the same machine.
vps_daemon process provides the basic infrastructure for Oracle Tuxedo client and server processes. Oracle Tuxedo client and server processes use the
vps_daemon process to perform data exchange, synchronization, monitoring, and network communication functions. The
vps_daemon process also allocates the resources needed for Oracle Tuxedo client and server processes to perform these functions.
vps_daemon process requires that the logical name
VPS_INITPATH point to a valid file containing the configuration parameters for the process. This file,
vps_init.txt, is located in the
udataobj directory and should not be modified. The parameters in this file are comparable to the IPC (Inter Process Communication) tunable parameters on the UNIX platform and to the IPC parameters on the Windows NT platform. The default parameters in
vps_init.txt are capable of supporting approximately 50 Oracle Tuxedo servers and 200 Oracle Tuxedo clients.
If you want to change the default parameters (or perform other advanced configuration tasks), please consult Oracle Support.
This section explains how to configure Oracle Tuxedo once you have finished installing it.
Use the following procedure to complete the configuration process.
