Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Reference

How to Use This Chapter

For the Configure Now option, the Java ES installer displays configuration pages for the selected components that are configurable during installation. You can accept default information or enter alternate information.

Note –

The following components cannot be configured by the Java ES installer: Calendar Server, Communications Express, Delegated Administrator, Directory Server Preparation Tool, Instant Messaging, Messaging Server, Service Registry, and Sun Cluster software.

If you use the Configure Later option, little is required during installation beyond being aware of common server settings and how port settings work. For information on installation directories and port assignments, refer to Chapter 3, Default Installation Directories and Ports.

The component-specific tables in this chapter are grouped in the same way the configuration pages are grouped in the graphical installer: first by component, and then by type of information. The configuration information tables have two columns: “Label and State File Parameter,” and “Description.” The “Label and State File Parameter” column contains the following information:

Tip –

A good way to see how the parameters are used is to examine the example state file in Appendix C, Example State File, in Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Guide for UNIX.

At the end of an installation session, a summary file contains the configuration values that are set during installation. You can view this file from the installer, or from the directory where the file is saved:

Solaris OS: /var/sadm/install/logs

Linux: /var/opt/sun/install/logs

Default Values

Default values apply to all installer modes, unless the description provides a separate value for a silent mode state file.

State file values are case sensitive except where noted.

Configuration Terminology

During installation and configuration, you are prompted for values relating to various types of domains, organizations, and related configuration information.

Suggested Look-up Strategies

If you are using this chapter to get information to answer configuration questions posed by the installer, do the following:

  1. Locate the section that describes that component.

  2. Find the table whose content matches the installer page being displayed. Each table contains all the fields and questions contained on a single page of the installer.

  3. If you are using this chapter to get information about parameters in a state file, do the following:

    • If you are using the guide online, use the HTML or PDF search feature to find the parameter string.

    • If you are using a printed book, refer to the index. The index contains an entry for each parameter name.
