15 Installing InterConnect Manager

This chapter describes how to install Interconnect Manager.


  • Before you install Interconnect Manager, you must install Pipeline Manager. See "Installing Pipeline Manager" in BRM Installation Guide.

  • If you are installing Interconnect Manager to replace an identical release (for example, to restore a clean version of the package), you must first uninstall the existing installation. See "Uninstalling Interconnect Manager".

Installing Interconnect Manager

To install InterConnect Manager:

  1. If the Third-Party software package is not installed already, install it. See "Installing the Third-Party Software" in BRM Installation Guide.

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

    source source.me.sh

    C shell:

    source source.me.csh
  3. Download the InterConnect Manager software to a temporary directory (temp_dir).


    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" in BRM Installation Guide.
  4. Go to temp_dir and run the installation program.

    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 patch.

    7.5.0_Interconnect_platform_opt.bin -console

    where platform is the operation system name.

  5. Follow the instructions displayed during installation.


If you do not specify an installation directory, Interconnect Manager is installed in the /opt/ifw directory.
