Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX

Verifying After Installation

This section provides instructions for verifying that installation of the Java ES component packages was successful. If you performed a Configure Now installation, some of the components are configured and ready to run. However, the purpose of the guidelines in this section is simply to verify that the packages are installed correctly, with no partial packages or missing components.

A good way to verify that packages were installed successfully is to examine the product registry. After installation, the Java ES installer updated the product registry to contain the components that were installed. During uninstallation, this same file is read by the Java ES uninstaller to determine which components are present and can be uninstalled.

Looking at the installation logs is also helpful, as is checking a few of the components to see if the correct version is contained in the appropriate directory.

Finally, you can try to start components that were part of a Configure Now installation, such as Web Server or Directory Server.

Use some or all of the following steps to verify installation.

ProcedureTo Verify That Installation Succeeded

  1. Verify that no partial packages were installed. On Solaris OS:

    pkginfo -p
  2. Verify that the correct version of a component is present.

    To see the correct versions for this release, refer to Appendix A, Java ES Components for This Release. For example, the J2SE version for Solaris should be 1.5.0_03.

    cd /usr/jdk
    ls -l
  3. Verify that the installed components are reflected in the product registry.

    1. On Solaris, use the prodreg tool to view installed packages:

      prodreg &
    2. Expand the Java Enterprise System Node to view the packages installed by the Java ES installer.

    3. You can also use the following command to view the productregistry file directly.

      view /var/sadm/install/productregistry

      To exit, press the Esc key, then :q.

  4. Review the configuration data you provided during installation by opening the summary log:

    cd /var/sadm/install/logs
    view Java_Enterprise_System_Summary_Report_install.*
  5. For a Configure Now installation, start Portal Server and its related services.

    1. Start Directory Server:

    2. Start Web Server:


      Starting Web Server automatically starts Portal Server and Access Manager.

    3. Access the Web Server URL:

    4. Access the administration URL for Web Server:

  6. For a Configure Now installation, stop Portal Server and its related services.

    1. Stop the Web Server administration server:

    2. Stop Web Server:

    3. Stop Directory Server:

  7. For a Configure Now installation, start Portal Server and Access Manager services

  8. For a Configure Now installation, access the Access Manager console

    For login, User ID is amadmin, password is password.

  9. For a Configure Now installation, access Portal Server:

    For login, User ID is amadmin, password is password.

  10. If errors occur, restart Web Server and repeat the steps.
