Install everything on one system
The AnswerBook2 server software and Solaris 7 document collections are on the Solaris 7 Documentation CD. If you install both parts of the server product on a single system, when you finish the installation process and start the server, it will be ready to serve documents to all clients. See "To Install the AnswerBook2 Server Software" for more information.
Install server and documentation on separate systems
You can install the documentation server software on one system and point to document collections that are located on a different system. You might want to do this if you have minimal space available on your server's system or if you have existing collections on another system. To do this, you need to add each collection manually to the server's database and the Scan for Locally Installed Collections function will not find these collections. See "To Install the AnswerBook2 Server Software" for more information.
Run a server from the CD
If you are operating in a non-networked environment (stand-alone) or you only occasionally view the online documentation, you can run the AnswerBook2 server directly from the Solaris 7 Documentation CD. A documentation server run from the CD tends to be slower than a documentation server installed on your system. Do not use this approach if you expect other users to access this documentation server. For more information, see "To Run a Documentation Server From the Solaris 7 Documentation CD".
