Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

Before Installing

Before beginning the tasks in the chapter, you should have developed an installation sequence and ensured that any general installation requirements and prerequisites are met.

Verifying Prerequisites and Requirements

Refer to Verifying General Installation Prerequisites for specific information on prerequisites for this release of Communications Suite.

You can find system requirements for Communications Suite listed in the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Release Notes. For Java ES, see Platform Requirements and Issues in Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Release Notes for UNIX.

Note –

You must use Access Manager Legacy (6.x) installation type if you are installing Access Manager with Messaging Server, Calendar Server, Delegated Administrator, or Instant Messaging. Access Manager Realm (7.x) installation type can only be used if you are not installing any of these product components.

(Optional) Setting Your Local Display for a Remote Host

If you are logging in to a remote host, make sure your DISPLAY environment variable is properly set to the local display. If the DISPLAY variable is not set properly, the installer runs in text-based mode.

You might need to grant display authorization to run the installer on your local display. For example, you can use the following command to grant display authority from myhost to the root user on serverhost:

myhost\> xauth extract - myhost:0.0 | rsh -l root serverhost xauth merge -

For full instructions on granting such authorization safely, refer to the “Manipulating Access to the Server” chapter in the Solaris X Window System Developer's Guide.
