Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX

ProcedureTo Use the Installer for Identifying Upgrade Issues

  1. On each host, start the installer using the -no option to indicate that this is not an active installation:

    For the graphical installer:

    ./installer -no

    For the text-based installer:

    ./installer -nodisplay -no
  2. Proceed to component selection.

  3. Select the components you are planning to install on this host.

    The Status column indicates products that are required for the components you have selected.

  4. If an incompatible version of a selectable component is detected by the installer, you are prompted to upgrade or remove the incompatible version.

    After resolving the problem, you can refresh the selection list, make your selection, and then ask the installer to proceed.

  5. If an incompatible version of a shared component is detected by the installer, the Shared Component Upgrades Required list is displayed.

    For each shared component listed, review the Installed Version against the Required Version to determine if any upgrading will need to be done. You must determine whether the newer Java ES versions of shared components are compatible with other installed applications on the host.

  6. Exit the installer and do any upgrading necessary.

  7. Repeat the procedure for each target host.

    Note –

    The installer detects the Directory Server version that is distributed with the Solaris OS and warns you that the Directory Server script belonging to the Solaris distribution will be renamed by the installer. No action is required.
