Sun Java System Federation Manager 7.0 User's Guide

Detailing the fmsetup Syntax

fmsetup is the command-line application used to install or uninstall Federation Manager. fmsetup is located in the /FederationManager-base/SUNWam/fm/bin directory. The syntax is:

fmsetup <install | uninstall> [-p]  -s  silent-installation-file-name
fmsetup -V
fmsetup -?


install | uninstall

Defines whether you are installing or uninstalling Federation Manager. 

  • Choose install to install all Federation Manager packages and supported components.

  • Choose uninstall to remove all Federation Manager packages and supported components.

-p or --package

Defines whether the installer will just add the Federation Manager packages or add the packages and create a WAR from them. When specified, this option only installs the Federation Manager packages. No WAR is created. 

Note –

To complete installation after running fmsetup with the -p option, fmwar must be run to create a WAR for deployment. See Standard Installation for more information.

If the -p option is not specified, fmsetup will install the Federation Manager packages, create a staging directory at /var/opt/SUNWam/FM/war_staging, and generate a Federation Manager WAR. See Self-Extracting Installation for more information.

-s or --silent

Defines the location and name of the file created from the template discussed in The Silent Installation File.
