This guide describes how to install, upgrade, configure, and remove Sun Ray Server Software 4.0. It also provides instructions for upgrading to the appropriate version of the Solaris operating environment.
The reader is presumed to be familiar with basic UNIX® commands and to have experience in network configuration and administration. Technical information and procedures are presented with a command-line interface.
The installation flow chart (FIGURE 1-1) and network configuration flow chart (FIGURE 1-2) summarize the tasks to be performed. Following the procedures in this guide can help to avoid unnecessary problems when you install, upgrade, or configure Sun Ray systems.
Sun Ray Server Software 4.0 is available on CD-ROM and ESD (electronic software download). If you download the software electronically, then when instructions and procedures in this guide ask you to change to the image directory on the CD-ROM, please change instead to the image directory under the download directory. Commands issued in either file system should execute properly.
The following diagram shows the key decisions you should take before performing an installation or upgrade.
