ATG’s Configuration and Installation Manger (CIM) cuts down on the complexity of configuring multiple ATG applications. A series of text-based wizards guide you through configuration procedures, ensuring that necessary steps are completed, and that steps are performed in the correct order.

CIM is a text-based, menu-driven interface that walks you through several configuration tasks that are commonly susceptible to error. Menus are dynamically generated based on your selections to provide choices appropriate for your installation.

The installation guides for individual products contain specific information on what CIM accomplishes for those products, but in general, CIM handles the following configuration areas:

The result is a functional installation that can be used as a starting point for further configuration. CIM does not replace configuration steps that require a running ATG application, or for which a suitable user interface exists.

Note: CIM does not configure a scenario or process editor server. See the ATG Multiple Application Integration Guide for information on scenario editor servers.

To use CIM, do the following:

  1. Install your application server and database software.

    WebSphere Note: In order to use CIM to configure an ATG installation for WebSphere, your WebSphere installation needs to use cell deployment. There is a separate WebSphere installer for this type of installation, denoted by ND. Also, note that if you run WebSphere as a root user, CIM must also be run as a root user.

    WebLogic Note: If you are using offline deployment in WebLogic, you can deploy only a single ATG EAR file per domain. CIM deploys the EAR file to WebLogic’s autodeploy directory, and that EAR is loaded by any running server instance.

  2. Download and install your ATG products.

  3. Navigate to:


  4. Enter the command:


  5. Follow the prompts to configure your installation. To access the online help, enter H at any point.
