Table 8 Known Issues in Installation

Problem ID 



Installing the stand-alone product over an existing Java ES installation and vice-versa is not supported.

Installing Web Server 7.0 as a stand-alone product over an existing Java Enterprise System (Java ES) installation is not supported. Java ES users of the Web Server must use the Java ES installer to upgrade to the newer version of the Web Server. 


Web Server cannot be installed without installing compat-libstdc++.


On newer versions of Linux, for example, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, install compat-libstdc++ before installing Web Server 7.0.


Uninstalling the administration node does not delete itself from the administration server node.

After installing the administration node and registering it with the administration server in the Node tab, the administration node is listed in the Node tab. When the administration node is uninstalled, the administration node entry remains in the Node tab. 


Cannot install if the setup is started from a shared folder on the network.

On the Windows platform, unable to install the product when the installer setup.exe is started from a shared network folder on another machine.


On Windows, installer crashes in CLI mode, if the administration password is >= 8 characters.

If the administration user password is greater than eight characters, then any invalid input to the administration port, web server port, or the administration user ID crashes the installer. 


When installing Web Server 7.0 on the Windows platform using the command-line interface (CLI), the administration password must be set to less than (<) eight characters. 


On Windows, need icons for objects in Programs folder.

The objects in the Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 folder on Windows are created with default Windows program icons and do not have specific icons that denote Sun programs. 


The CLI installer does not handle ctrl+c while entering the password.

The installer does not accept ctrl+c and hence the terminal becomes unusable.
