After you have accepted the terms of the license, the installer surveys the software on your host and presents you either with a page for upgrading certain components detected on the host, or the Component Selection page.
Monitoring Console cannot be run on any host where its monitored components are located. Because the installer does not prevent you from installing them together, it is important that you always run a separate installation session to install Monitoring Console on a host separate from the Communications Suite components. For instructions in installing Monitoring Console, see the Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX.
If needed, run an upgrade session using the installer.
The installer surveys the host for incompatible versions of Application Server, Message Queue, and HADB. If any of these components are found, the Choose to Upgrade or Install page is displayed, allowing you to upgrade these components.
If you do not plan to install any of these components in your session, you can accept the default which is Install New Software, then proceed with installation.
If you will be installing any of these components, choose Upgrade Existing Software. An upgrade session starts, displaying the upgradable components. Shared components are usually included. When you have completed the upgrade session, you can then start a new installation. For additional information, refer to How Upgrading Works.
Application Server, Message Queue, and HADB are the only product components that can be upgraded by the installer. If any other incompatible product components are found, you will receive a message telling you that you must exit the installer and upgrade or remove these components before the installer can proceed.
Select the software you want to install.
If your installer window is too small to view all the text, you might need to resize the window manually by dragging the corner.
To see information about the individual product components, hold the cursor over the item. A description of that item is displayed in the text box at the bottom of the page.
To see information on the compatibility status of a product component, click the ellipsis (...) in the Details column, if available.
Product components that are already installed are disabled (grayed out). If they can be upgraded by the installer, their Status is Upgradable.
Click the Help button to view the online help for the page.
On Solaris 10. If you are running the installer in a non-global zone, any components that cannot be installed into a non-global zone will be disabled.
There are some specific issues to be aware of when installing or upgrading in Solaris 10 zones. For guidelines, refer to Solaris 10 Zones.
On the Component Selection page, you can select components for installation as follows:
All components. To select all product components and their required shared components, choose Select All.
Some components. To select some product components, individually select the product components. As you make each selection, the installer automatically selects any product components that the component you selected depends on.
Subcomponents. To select subcomponents, expand the subcomponent list by clicking the expansion turner to the left of the component. As you make each selection, the installer automatically selects any product subcomponents that the component you selected depends on.
Shared components. To upgrade all shared components to the current release, select Shared Components.
Language packages. To install language packages, click Install multilingual packages for all selected components. (The default value is unselected.) Each additional component you select causes additional multilingual packages to be installed, adding to the disk space required for installation.
If applicable, select a web container.
If you are not sure which product component to use for your web container, you can select both Application Server and Web Server, then choose Configure Now when prompted for configuration type. You will be offered a choice of web container on a configuration page later in the installation session.
To use Web Server as the web container, the Web Server Configuration Type mode must be set to Server, not Agent, when you are queried on the Web Server Configuration Type Data page. The default value is Server.
If applicable, select a third-party web container.
To use a third-party web container, do the following:
If applicable, specify any remote dependencies.
To satisfy dependencies by using product components installed on other hosts, do the following:
After you made you product component selections, expand and scan the entire list of components.
Examine the selected components to see what the installer has automatically selected that you might not be aware of.
Deselect any product component that you are planning to access on a remote host.
For example, a previously-installed and configured Directory Serveris commonly accessed remotely. When you click Next, the Dependency Warning screen is displayed.
Choose Use a Version Installed on a Remote Host.
