|Installing Components > (Linux and Solaris Operating Systems) Using Component Manager in Interactive Mode|
You must install the Component Manager before proceeding. The following procedure must be carried out as a user with root privileges. If you have installed a previous version of Hardware Management Pack, you must manually uninstall the earlier version before installing the latest version. Component Manager detects older versions of Hardware Management Pack during the install procedure, but does not upgrade the system due to changes in the packaging of this release.
Open a terminal.
Within the directory where you uncompressed the Hardware Management Pack download, navigate to the Packages subdirectory in the SOFTWARE subdirectory.
Start the Component Manager in interactive mode by typing the following command:
Component Manager starts and displays a list of currently installed components and available components in the Packages subdirectory.
Tip - The option -d directoryspecifies a directory that Component Manager searches for available components.
To install the components shown in the list of available components, type I at the following message:
[L]ist, [D]etailed list, [I]nstall, [U]ninstall, [H]elp or [Q]uit >
A numbered list of the available components is displayed.
Choose one of the following options:
To install a single specific component, type the number listed to the right of the component name.
To install all of the listed components, type A.
To return to the previous menu, type R.
Depending on the component you chose to install in step 5, you might need to specify further options, such as these:
Do you wish to start the hwmgmtd service ? [Y]es, [N]o >
To start or restart the named service, type Y.
Do you wish to enable the hwmgmtd service on startup by default ? [Y]es, [N]o >
To start the named service each time the server starts, type Y.
