Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Upgrade

ProcedureTo Use the Identity Manager Installer

Use the Identity Manager installation and upgrade program to upgrade your Development environment.

  1. Use one of the following methods to start the installer:

    • To use the GUI installer, run install.bat (for Windows) or install (for UNIX).

      The installer displays the Welcome screen.

    • To activate the installer in nodisplay mode, change to the directory where the software is located, and type:

      install -nodisplay

      The installer displays the Welcome text, and then presents a list of questions to gather installation information in the same order as the GUI installer.

      If no display is present, the installer defaults to the nodisplay option.

      The installer does not install an older version of the software over a newer version. In this situation, an error message displays and the installer exits.

  2. On the Welcome screen, click Next.

  3. On the Install or Upgrade? screen, select Upgrade and click Next.

  4. On the Select Installation Directory screen, select the directory where the earlier Identity Manager version is located and click Next.

    The installer displays progress bars for the pre-upgrade and post-upgrade processes and then proceeds to Installation Summary screen.

  5. For detailed information about the installation, click Details, view the log file, and click Close to exit the installer.

  6. Remove all of the compiled Identity Manager files from the work directory of the application server.
