Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX

ProcedureTo Install the Software

When you are satisfied with the Ready to Install list, you can start the installation.

Note –

For Linux, do not use the rpm command while the installer is running. For HP-UX, do not use the swlist, swcopy, or swinstall commands. If you use these command during Java ES installation, the installer might hang.

  1. To start the installation, press Return to accept the default [1].

    The installation process starts and a progress indicator bar informs you of the state of the installation. For example:

    Java Enterprise System

    Depending on the size and complexities of your installation, this process can be lengthy.

    When the installation has successfully completed, the Installation Complete message is displayed.

  2. Examine the Installation Summary and Installation logs.

    When installation is complete, any issues from the installation, such as insufficient memory, are displayed on the screen. The following files also contain useful information

    • [1] Installation Summary. Lists each component installed and the settings you specified. If you chose Configure Now, this summary includes all the configuration values.

    • [2] Installation log. Displays the installer’s log messages for components.

    After installation, these files can be found here:

    Solaris OS: /var/sadm/install/logs

    Linux and HP-UX: /var/opt/sun/install/logs

    To see a full listing of the Java ES logs, refer to Examining Installation Log Files.

  3. Exit the installer.

    Your installer session is done. Product components that were installed will need to be started after you have completed all postinstallation tasks. Proceed to Next Steps.

  4. Register your successful installation.

    After Java ES installation completes successfully, the Java ES Reporter installation utility starts automatically in the console or terminal where you invoked the installer. You are asked to provide the URL or IP address of a proxy that Reporter will use to access Sun through the internet. No other input from you is required.
