Sun Java System Federation Manager 7.0 User's Guide

Self-Extracting Installation

The Federation Manager self-extracting installation option installs the packages, and creates the Federation Manager WAR in one procedure. After completing the self-extracting installation option, see Deploying Your Federation Manager WAR for further instructions.

ProcedureTo Add Federation Manager Packages and Create a WAR

  1. Log in as root.

  2. Create a new directory.

    # mkdir fm1.0

    # cd fm1.0
  3. Download the file-name.tar.gz file into the new directory.

    Go to to download Federation Manager.

  4. Unpack the product binaries by typing:

    # gunzip —dc file-name.tar.gz | tar -xvof -

    where file-name.tar.gz is the name of the downloaded file.

  5. Run fmsetup to add the Federation Manager packages and create a WAR.

    #fmsetup install -s silent-installation-file

    where silent-installation-file is the name of the file created from the silent installation template discussed in The Silent Installation File. See Detailing the fmsetup Syntax for more information.

    Caution – Caution –

    fmsetup only installs shared packages if they are not already present. If an older package is detected, the installer script will quit and display an error message identifying the older package name. To continue, you must manually remove that package using pkgrm(1M) and run fmsetup again.

  6. Follow the instructions in Deploying Your Federation Manager WAR to complete the deployment.
