Deployment Example 1: Access Manager 7.0 Load Balancing, Distributed Authentication UI, and Session Failover

3.2 Downloading and Mounting the Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installer

Installation as described in this document includes the installation and basic configuration of a Java Enterprise System (Java ES) solution. Installation, as used in this document, means using the Java ES 2004Q5 installer to copy the files for Java ES components to computer systems. You can download and unpack the installer zip files onto one host computer system, and then mount the cd image on any remote host computer systems where you must install Directory Server, Access Manager, or Web Server.

ProcedureTo Download and Mount the Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installer

  1. Download the Java ES installer zip files.

    1. Start a browser, and go to

    2. Choose Java Enterprise System.

    Follow the instructions for downloading two zip files that together will form the CD image.

  2. Log in as a root user to a host computer system where you want to run the installer.

  3. Copy the Java Enterprise System installer zip files to this host computer system.

  4. Unzip each zipped file. Example:

    # unzip
    inflating: java_es_05Q4-ga-solaris-sparc-1.iso...  
    # unzip
    inflating: java_es_05Q4-ga-solaris-sparc-2.iso...  
  5. Create three directories for mounting the .iso files. Example:

    # mkdir /mnt
    # mkdir /mnt2
    # mkdir /jes-complete
  6. Mount the .iso files.

    In the following examples, replace /download-directory/ with the path to your .iso file:

    # lofiadm -a /download-directory/java_es_05Q4-ga-solaris-sparc-1.iso /dev/lofi/1 
     # mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1 /mnt

    Tip –

    If the /dev/lofi/1 device is already in use, run this command:

    # lofiadm —d /dev/lofi/1

    and then retry using the lofiad -a command.

    To mount the second iso file:

    # lofiadm -a /download-directory/java_es_05Q4-ga-solaris-sparc-2.iso /dev/lofi/2
    # mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/2 /mnt2
    # lofiadm
    Block Device             File
    dev/lofi/1              /export/temp/java_es_05Q4-ga-solaris-sparc-1.iso
    /dev/lofi/2             /export/temp/java_es_05Q4-ga-solaris-sparc-2.iso
  7. Copy both mounted .iso files to the same directory.

    The two .iso files together form the complete JES package, so you must copy both files into the same directory. As an alternative, you can burn each ISO onto a CD, and then run the installer from a CD drive.

    # cd /mnt1
    # cp -r * /jes-complete
    # cd /mnt2
    # cp -r * /jes-complete
Next Steps

After you mount the .iso files and copy them to the same directory, the installer is located in the here:


In this Deployment Example, you start the installer with the -nodisplay option:

# /jes-complete/Solaris_sparc/installer —nodisplay
