If some of the product components you have chosen can be configured during installation, the Configuration Type page is displayed. You have the following configuration choices:
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.
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 enter only the minimum values that are necessary for copying the packages. The installer proceeds without doing further configuration. If you chose the Configure Later type, skip to To Install the Software.
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, the Password Choice Panel is displayed.
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.
For the Java ES installer, white space cannot be used in admin passwords, nor can the following symbols: ; & ( ) ! | < > ' “ $ ^ \ # / , @ %
For a Configure Now installation, specify common server settings.
Either accept the defaults, or use alternate data to answer the installer questions regarding these global fields. Values that you enter here appear as default values on subsequent product component configuration pages. Refer to online help or to Common Settings in Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Reference for UNIX for information on these fields.
If you choose to enter alternate values instead of accepting the default values, you will need to be sure to specify your chosen alternate values whenever the item is requested by the installer or a configurator.
The following example screen shows the Specify Common Server Settings configuration page. In this example, the fields associated with Administrator User ID and Administrator Password are not displayed because a choice was made to use a single administrator account and password earlier in the installation session.
Click Next to proceed.
For a Configure Now installation, the configuration pages for each product component that can be configured during installation are displayed one by one.
Configuration values are gathered by the installer as you proceed through the installation. After installation is completed, you can access this information in the Installation Summary in the following locations:
Solaris OS: /var/sadm/install/logs
Linux and HP-UX: /var/opt/sun/install/logs
