This section contains important information about installing and uninstalling Instant Messaging.
(Linux Only, Issue Number: 6518514) If you are upgrading Instant Messaging from a previous version, you must apply the sun-im-ident-7.2–24 patch before applying the sun-im-install-7.2–24 patch. Otherwise, upgrade may fail.
(Issue Number: 6361796) If you perform a patchrm on the Instant Messaging installation, all customizations to the client resources will be lost. Ensure that you back up client resources before performing this action.
(Issue Number: 6473540) On Solaris, if you upgrade from Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7 2005Q4 to 7.2, then rollback to the 2005Q4 release, and then run the
configure utility, configure fails with errors, but the rollback is successful.
If you are using Access Manager with Instant Messaging you need to install the “Legacy (version 6 style)” Access Manager using the Java Enterprise System installer. This version of Instant Messaging is not compatible with the “Realm (version 7 style)” Access Manager.
If you choose to use Sun Java System Access Manager to store policies when configuring Instant Messaging, policies like the following are created:
Ability to administer Instant Messaging and Presence Services
Ability to change your own Instant Messaging settings
Ability to manage Instant Messaging Conference Rooms
The Instant Messaging Installation Guide has been discontinued. If you are installing Instant Messaging 7.2 for the first time, see the Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX for installation instructions. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Instant Messaging, see the Sun Java Enterprise System 2006Q3 Upgrade Guide.
