Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX

ProcedureTo Specify a Configuration Type and Common Server Settings

  1. Specify a configuration type from the following options:

    • Configure Now (the default). Allows you to configure product components that permit configuration at installation time. Your Configure Now tasks include specifying the common server settings and entering the configuration information for the product components selected.

      Note –

      Some product components cannot be configured during installation. If any of these product components were selected, you receive a message saying that you will need to configure these product components after installation.

    • Configure Later. You provide only the minimum values that are necessary for installing the packages. The installer proceeds without doing further configuration. If you chose the Configure Later type, skip to To Install the Software.

  2. For Configure Now, choose how your administrator user ID and password should be entered.

    If you selected more than one product component that uses administrator user ID and password, you are prompted to choose.

    Note –

    For the Java ES installer, white space cannot be used in admin passwords, nor can the following symbols: ; & ( ) ! | < > ' “ $ ^ \ # / , @ %

    • Use a single administrator account and password. (default) If you accept the default, you enter the administrator user ID and password once, and these fields will not be displayed again on the configuration pages.

    • Use different administrator account for each product. If you select this option, you will be asked to enter administrator user ID and password on the configuration pages for each of the selected components that use administrator ID and password.

  3. For a Configure Now installation, specify common server settings.

    The installer presents you with a list of common server settings and their defaults for the components your selected. For example:

    Specify Common Server Settings
    Enter Host Name [myComputer]  {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Enter DNS Domain Name []  {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Enter IP Address []  {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Enter Server admin User ID  [Admin]  {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Enter Admin User's Password (Password cannot be less than 8 characters) []  {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Confirm Admin User's Password  []  {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Enter System User [root] {"<" goes back, "!" exits}
    Enter system Group [root] {"<" goes back, "!" exits}

    Either accept the defaults, or use alternate data for these global parameters. For information on the parameters, refer to the Common Settings in Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Reference for UNIX.
