|Using the Graphical Interface Installation on Windows NT|
|The following steps describe how to use the graphical user interface
installation program to install Calendar Server.
If you are downloading the product from the iPlanet web site, create a directory (such as c:\tmp\calsvr) on the machine that will host the iPlanet Calendar Server and download (or copy) the Calendar Server the self-extracting archive file (such as ics2.1 -export-en.x86- windows-nt4.0.exe) to that directory. Make sure that the download directory has adequate disk space to store the extracted files.
The license agreement displays. Read the license agreement and click Yes (Accept License) to accept it and continue. (If you click NO, the installation program will end without installing Calendar Server.)
If the installation program cannot detect the host name or domain name, it will display the "Unable to make network connection" screen. Please be sure that the host name and domain name specified are correct, then click Next to continue the installation. The installation program will then try to establish a network connection using these values.
Select the type of installation you wish to use: Typical or Custom. The same software is installed with each type of installation. The only difference between the types of installation is the number of choices you have to make during the installation process. Typical Installation is recommended for most users. Custom Installation requires you to specify all available configuration options and is recommended only for advanced users or for installations that require customized configuration options not provided in the Typical Installation. When you have finished making your selections, click Next to continue.
Note: If you choose Typical Installation, the installation program will skip some of the following questions because they are configured for you. Questions that apply only to a Custom Installation are so indicated and you can proceed to the next step.
This step applies only if you have a previous version of Calendar Server installed on this system. The installation program automatically detects an existing installation and displays a window that lets you can choose to upgrade or reinstall the existing components.
Remove and Reinstall Existing Components. Click this box only if you want to completely remove the existing installation and reinstall it from scratch. Otherwise, leave this box unchecked (the default) and click Next to upgrade only the software components and keep all existing database and configuration information.
If you choose to reinstall Calendar Server, you are asked to confirm that you want to continue with the remove and reinstall operation. If you click Continue Remove/Reinstall, all existing database and configuration information on the system will be destroyed. Both the software components you selected and all database and configuration information will be installed as new. It is highly recommended that you backup any existing data bases before selecting this option - once the actual installation process is started, it cannot be undone. If you want to upgrade instead, click Choose New.
If you choose to upgrade and exiting Calendar Server installation, the installation program verifies if there is adequate disk space and then displays the Ready to Install window. To complete the installation, click Install Now.
The installation program will warn you if port 80 is already being used by another service on this system. If port 80 is already in use, you can still specify that Calendar Server listen on port 80 and then free port 80 on the other service. Otherwise, select a Web port number for Calendar Server other than 80.
Admin Port. (Randomly selected at installation time.) The port number used by Calendar Server to provide web (HTTP) access to administer the server, such as commands to stop the server or list all logged-in users.
Enter the identity that the Calendar Server will run as. You can run Calendar Server logged in as any valid user. Usually, however, you will want to run the server under the default system account (logged in as administrator) to ensure that you have all account privileges required to manage the server. If you log in as a user other than administrator, you may not have the privileges you need to manage the servers.
Specify the Calendar Server Administrator. This is the user account that has privileges to use the Calendar Server administration utilities: csstop to stop the server, cstats to display server statistics, and cstool to list all logged-in users. The default is calmaster. When you have finished making your selection, click Next to continue.
Calendar Administrator email address. Enter the full email address (userID and domain name) of the person to whom you want Calendar Server to send messages in case of server problems, for example email@example.com.
Note: If the Calendar Server cannot connect to the SMTP server you entered, a message box will display stating that the Calendar Server will not run if an SMTP server is not available. If this is acceptable at this point, click Accept. Otherwise, click Choose New and enter the host name of another SMTP server.
Note: The installation program displays a warning message if you selected a directory located on a drive partition that is not formatted as NTFS (NT File System). It is recommended that, for improved performance, you choose an NTFS-formatted drive in which to install Calendar Server database files.
Enter the following LDAP server information (in a Typical Installation these settings apply to both user authentication and user preferences; in a Custom Installation these settings apply only to user preferences):
Note: If the installation program does not detect an LDAP server running on the specified port, a message box will display stating that the Calendar Server will not run if an LDAP server is not available. If this is acceptable at this point, click Accept. Otherwise, click Choose New and re-enter the LDAP configuration parameters.
Select the options for automatically starting Calendar Server. You can choose to start the server after successful installation and, optionally, to start the server automatically at system startup. If you do not wish to start the server after the installation or upon server startup, uncheck the applicable box or boxes. When you have finished making your selections, click Next to continue.
When the installation procedure has completed, a summary window displays. Click Details if you want to review summary information about the installation. When you are finished, click Dismiss to close the Summary information window, then click Done to exit the installation program.
|Using the Command Line Installation on Windows NT|
iPlanet Calendar Server provides you the option of running the installation script without using the graphical interface. To run the command line installation program, use the following steps:
If you are downloading the product from the iPlanet web site, create a directory (such as /tmp/calsvr) on the machine that will host the iPlanet Calendar Server and download (or copy) the Calendar Server archive file to that directory. Make sure that the download directory has adequate disk space to store the extracted files.
|Uninstalling the Calendar Server on Windows NT|
To uninstall iPlanet Calendar Server, use the following steps:
Choose either a Full or a Partial uninstall. The Full uninstall removes both components (Calendar Server and Calendar Server API). The Partial uninstall lets you choose to uninstall either or both of these components.
