Installing Paymentech Manager


If you have already installed the product, features that are already installed cannot be reinstalled without uninstalling them first. To reinstall a feature, uninstall it and then install it again.

To install Paymentech Manager:

  1. Download the software to a temporary directory (temp_dir).


    • If you download to a Windows workstation, use FTP to copy the .bin file to a temporary directory on your UNIX server.

    • You must increase the heap size used by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) before running the installation program to avoid ”Out of Memory” error messages in the log file. For information see, "Increasing Heap Size to Avoid ”Out of Memory” Error Messages".

  2. Go to the directory where you installed the Third-Party package and source the source.me file.


    You must source the source.me file to proceed with installation, otherwise ”suitable JVM not found” and other error messages appear.

    Bash shell:

    source source.me.sh

    C shell:

    source source.me.csh
  3. Go to the temp_dir directory and enter this command:


    where platform is the operating system name.


    You can use the -console parameter to run the installation in command-line mode. To enable a graphical user interface (GUI) installation, install a GUI application such as X Windows and set the DISPLAY environment variable before you install the software.
  4. Follow the instructions displayed during installation. The default installation directory for Paymentech Manager is BRM_Home/opt/portal/7.5.


    The installation program does not prompt you for the installation directory if BRM or Paymentech Manager is already installed on the machine and automatically installs the package at the BRM_Home location.
  5. Go to the directory where you installed the Paymentech Manager package and source the source.me file:

    Bash shell:

    source source.me.sh

    C shell:

    source source.me.csh
  6. Go to the BRM_Home/setup directory and run the pin_setup script.


    The pin_setup script starts all required BRM processes.
  7. If your event tables are partitioned, run the partition_utils utility with the -o update parameter from the BRM_Home/apps/partition_utils directory:

    perl partition_utils.pl -o update

    For more information, see "Updating Partitions" and "partition_utils" in BRM System Administrator's Guide.

Your Paymentech Manager installation is now complete.
