Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

ProcedureTo Update Your MANPATH Variable

The following example procedure shows how to ensure that the Application Server man pages are available using the C shell.

  1. Check your MANPATH environment variable to see if the correct path is already there.

    env | grep MANPATH

  2. If the correct path is not there, add the location of your Communications Suite component man pages to your MANPATH environment variable.

    • On Solaris OS, the following example command sets your MANPATH environment variable for the session:

      setenv MANPATH {$MANPATH}:/usr/dt/man:/usr/man:/opt/SUNWappserver/share/man

      To configure this environment variable to apply each time you log in, add the setenv command contents to your .login or .cshrc file.

    • On Linux, update the /etc/man.config file with the required MANPATH. For example, add this line to the /etc/man.config file:

      MANPATH /opt/sun/man

      The new man pages will be fully accessible, regardless of path.

      Note –

      For Linux, if users have MANPATH settings in their own shells, the procedure for Solaris OS should be used. This allows their personal settings to override the /etc/man.config file.

  3. Verify that the man pages are accessible.

    For example, the following command should display the asadmin man page for Application Server:

    man asadmin
