Sun Cluster Data Service for SAP Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Install the Sun Cluster HA for SAP Packages by Using the Web Start Program

You can run the Web Start program with a command-line interface (CLI) or with a graphical user interface (GUI). The content and sequence of instructions in the CLI and the GUI are similar. For more information about the Web Start program, see the installer(1M) man page.

  1. On the cluster node where you are installing the Sun Cluster HA for SAP packages, become superuser.

  2. (Optional) If you intend to run the Web Start program with a GUI, ensure that your DISPLAY environment variable is set.

  3. Insert the Sun Cluster Agents CD_ROM into the CD-ROM drive.

    If the Volume Management daemon vold(1M) is running and configured to manage CD-ROM devices, it automatically mounts the CD-ROM on the /cdrom/cdrom0 directory.

  4. Change to the Sun Cluster HA for SAP component directory of the CD-ROM.

    The Web Start program for the Sun Cluster HA for SAP data service resides in this directory.

    # cd /cdrom/cdrom0/components/SunCluster_HA_SAP_3.1/
  5. Start the Web Start program.

    # ./installer
  6. When you are prompted, select the type of installation.

    • To install only the C locale, select Typical.

    • To install other locales, select Custom.

  7. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the Sun Cluster HA for SAP packages on the node.

    After the installation is finished, the Web Start program provides an installation summary. This summary enables you to view logs that the Web Start program created during the installation. These logs are located in the /var/sadm/install/logs directory.

  8. Exit the Web Start program.

  9. Remove the Sun Cluster Agents CD_ROM from the CD-ROM drive.

    1. To ensure that the CD-ROM is not being used, change to a directory that does not reside on the CD-ROM.

    2. Eject the CD-ROM.

      # eject cdrom
