Determine which type of installation you will perform and follow the instructions for that type of installation.
If you are installing Agent for BEA WebLogic Server 9.0/9.1 in a clustered environment, you must perform many of the steps explained in this chapter. However, see Chapter 5, Installing and Configuring Policy Agent 2.2 for BEA WebLogic Server 9.0/9.1: Cluster. The installation and configuration of a clustered deployment is presented in that chapter combining specific tasks with generalized tasks. For the generalized tasks, you are directed to various locations in this guide to perform the more detailed steps required.
Before describing any tasks, this chapter provides you with installation-related information specific to BEA WebLogic Server 9.0/9.1. The subsequent sections lead you through the pre–installation and installation steps and describe how to view the installation log files. First, perform the pre-installation (preparation) steps. Then, perform the installation itself. The installation process has two phases. The first phase of the installation includes launching the installation program, which requires a directory to already have been selected for the agent files. The second phase of the installation involves interacting with the installation program. During this phase, the program prompts you step by step to enter information. Accompanying the prompts, are explanations of the type of information you need to enter. After you complete the installation, you can look at the installation log files.
