Launch the Installer

Last update September 15, 2017

 

Before you begin the installation, see the Installation Disk Space Requirements page.

The installer is available on Windows, UNIX, or other systems. You can launch the installer in GUI mode or Console mode or Silent mode with a response file. Ensure you have the osgiPackages file in the installation directory. You can find the osgiPackages file in the installer package.

More information:

Use Introscope and CEM Installers

Use the Installer in GUI, Console, or Silent Mode

Launch the Installer in GUI Mode on Windows

You can start the installer in GUI Mode on Windows. Use the installer that corresponds to the file type for your platform.

Follow these steps:

  1. Locate the installer .exe file.
  2. Double-click the file or invoke the installer from the command line:

    c:> .\Install.exe
    

    Substitute the file name for Install.exe.

Launch the Installer in GUI Mode on UNIX with a Desktop Environment

On a UNIX system, you can run the installer in GUI mode from any shell that has a windowing environment available. You use a .BIN or .JAR file to start the CA APM installer on a system that has a desktop environment.

Follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the directory where the installer is located and select Open in Terminal.
  2. Start the installer from a command line:
    • For an installer with a .BIN file extension:

      ./install.bin -i swing
      

      install.bin is the installer archive appropriate for your system.

    • For an installer with a .JAR file extension, specify the appropriate JVM (.JAR installers do not include a bundled JVM):

      [root:/] /usr/java/bin/java -classpath <InstallerName>.jar install -i swing

Launch the Installer in GUI Mode on UNIX without a Desktop Environment

On a UNIX system without a desktop, you can run the Introscope installer in GUI mode from any shell that has a windowing environment available.

Follow these steps:

  1. Copy the install.bin (the installer archive appropriate for your system) to the system where you want to install Introscope.
  2. Locate a separate system that does have an X windowing environment. For example, a Linux server, or a Windows system with Cygwin/X installed.
  3. Log in to the desktop of this second system.
  4. Open a terminal shell.
  5. Type the following command:

    xhost + <headless computer hostname or IP address>
    

    An Xsession starts on your local, windowing-capable system.

  6. From the terminal shell, use SSH or telnet to connect and log in to the headless system as a user.
  7. In the SSH or telnet session, type the following commands to set up the display:

    [root@headlessbox] DISPLAY=<Xserver.computer.hostname.or.IP.address>:0.0
    [root@headlessbox] export DISPLAY
    [root@headlessbox] echo $DISPLAY
    
  8. In the SSH or telnet session, launch the installer in swing mode with the command:

    ./install.bin -i swing
    

    The installer introduction screen opens on your local desktop.

  9. Proceed with the installation.
    The installation completes.
  10. End the SSH or telnet session.
  11. Type the following command:

    xhost - <headless computer hostname or IP address>
    

    Your windowing-capable system returns to its previous state.

Launch .BIN Installers in Console Mode

.BIN installers are available for the Solaris, AIX, and Red Hat Linux platforms.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open a command line.
  2. Type the following command:

    <path to installer> -i console
    

    Example:

    [root@server:/sw/downloads] ./introscope9.0.x.solaris.bin -i console
    
    

    Note: The -i console flag is not necessary on Linux.

Launch .JAR Installers in Console Mode

.JAR installers are available for UNIX platforms. You can launch a .JAR installer (without a bundled JVM) in console mode.

Follow these steps:

  1. Verify that the computer has sufficient disk space to run the .JAR installers.
  2. Open a command line.
  3. Enter the following command and specify your JVM:

    [root:/] /usr/java/bin/java -classpath <installerfilename>.jar install  - i console
    

    Use a flag to force the console mode, because Swing mode is the default for .JAR files.
