This section describes how to install and configure Client Management Services as part of a "custom" install. The following instructions include instructions for AIX®, Linux®, and Windows® operating systems.
You also have the option to install and configure Client Management Services using the add-ClientMgmt.rsp
response file. For details, see Using configuration response files and Response file templates
The steps also assume you intend to complete the installation in one attempt by completing the information on each panel and continuing to the next. At any point during the installation, you can select Back
to return to the previous panel or select Cancel
to abort the installation. Some steps below may be skipped if the information has already been gathered for another component. For example, if the configuration wizard has already gathered and verified the WebSphere® install path during a previous component configuration, this panel will be skipped.
Installing and configuring Client Management Services
To install and configure Client Management Services, perform the following procedure:
Select Configure an additional component and click Next.
If the original install image has been removed, specify the location where the install files can be found and click Next.
- Start the configuration wizard, if it is not already running, in one of the following ways:
Note: You may need to insert the Lotus Expeditor Server DVD in the drive or manually mount the product installation media on AIX and Linux platforms.
The list of components that can be configured displays. Select Client Management Services and click Next.
Note: You may select multiple components to install and configure.
Specify the directory where IBM® WebSphere Application Server is installed or accept the default directory listed, and click Next.
Note: If the configuration wizard has gathered and verified the WebSphere install path during a previous component configuration, this panel will be skipped.
Specify the fully-qualified host name of the system where you are installing Lotus Expeditor Server. This value must be a fully-qualified name registered with your Domain Name System (DNS). You cannot specify an IP address instead of a host name. Click Next.
Specify the WebSphere Application Server profile name into which your Lotus Expeditor Server will be configured, if necessary. The installation program supplies default values. If you want to use a different profile than the profile selected by the installation program, you need to update the profile name. After you specify a value, click Next.
The Expeditor Server Administrator Information panel display:
See Determining WebSphere Application Server configuration
for more information on determining the profile name.
The installation program verifies you have the prerequisite software installed at a version level that Lotus Expeditor Server supports.
The installation program also verifies that WebSphere administrative and application security are currently enabled
- Lotus Expeditor Server Administrator ID: Specify the administrator user ID you want to give to your Lotus Expeditor Server administrator. Your administrator user ID does not have to be the Windows login user. The administrator user ID must already exist in the WebSphere user repository. Lotus Expeditor Server has limitations for the Lotus Expeditor Server Administrator ID. See Supported naming conventions for information on restrictions on administrator IDs. The Administrator ID specified must be assigned the WebSphere Monitor role.
- Lotus Expeditor Server Administrator Password: Specify the password of the Lotus Expeditor Server administrator. See Supported naming conventions for information on restrictions on administrator password.
- Lotus Expeditor Server Administrative Group Name: All administrators of Lotus Expeditor Server services must be a member of this group. In addition, the group must have the WebSphere Administrator role.
Click Next. The administrator ID and password, group existence, group membership and roles will be validated.
The list of supported databases is displayed. Select the database to use to configure with Client Management services.
The next step will depend upon the database selected:
- Click Next. The Database Location panel displays. On the Database Location panel, select the location of the Client Management services database. To use a local database server installed on this system, select Local. To use a database server on another system, select Remote.
Important: If you plan to cluster Lotus Expeditor Server at a later time, you must select Remote. Clustering Lotus Expeditor Server requires a remote database and you cannot reconfigure Lotus Expeditor Server to use a remote database after the install.
- Click Next. The Database Login panel is displays.
- If you are using a local database, complete the following fields on the Lotus Expeditor Server Database Login panel:
If Oracle is selected:
- Database Administrator ID: Specify the administrator user ID configured for the database server.
- Database Administrator Password: Specify the password for the database administrator ID. Complete the following fields if you are using a remote database:
- Host name: Specify the fully-qualified host name of the system where the database server is installed. This value must be a full-qualified name registered with your Domain Name System (DNS). You cannot specify an IP address instead of a host name.
- Port number: Specify the database port number. The default port number for DB2 is 50000.
The configuration program verifies that this administrator user ID already exists. You cannot proceed until you enter a valid database administrator user ID and password. If you specified Remote
for the database location, the product databases must already exist. See Creating the databases (optional)
for information on creating databases on the remote database server.
The configuration program detects if data exists in the database from a previous install. If existing data is detected, you will be prompted as to whether you want to continue (using the existing data). If you do not want to use the existing data, you must delete and recreate the database before continuing.
- Click Next. The database information is validated. There may be a delay when validating a remote database. The configuration summary panel is displayed next.
- The Client directory path panel displays. Specify the location of the Oracle JDBC Driver jar file. This can be the location that you installed Oracle Client, such as C:\\oracle\\product\\10.2.0\\client_1, or simply the directory path where you placed Oracle JDBC driver jar file . Click Next, and the Oracle JDBC jar file (ojdbc14.jar or ojdbc5.jar) will be verified it exists. The Oracle Connect Information panel is displayed next.
- Specify the following fields on Oracle Connect Information panel:
Once the connection is validated, the Oracle Tablespace Path panel displays.
- Database admin user name: Specify the Oracle administrator user ID.
- Database admin password: Specify the password used for the Oracle administrator ID.
- Host name: Specify the fully-qualified host name of the system where the Oracle database server is installed.
- Port number: Specify port of the Oracle Listener. The default port for Oracle is 1521.
- Oracle System Identification (SID): Specify Oracle database server's SID as defined by the Oracle listener's tnsnames.ora file. In some cases, tnsnames.ora may use property SERVICE_NAME instead of SID.
- Click Next. The database information is validated. There may be a delay when validating a remote database.
Note: The configuration program will detect if data exists in the database from a previous install. If existing data is detected, you will be prompted as to whether you want to continue (using the existing data). If you do not want to use the existing data, you must delete and recreate the database before continuing.
Tablespace path: Specify the directory path on Oracle database server where Client Management's tablespaces will be created. This panel will attempt to provide a default by querying Oracle database server. You can change this to a different path. Click Next. The path will be verified it exists. The configuration summary panel is displayed next.
Verify that the information on the Configuration Summary panel is correct and click Next.
Note: Installing Client Management services is a two-phase process. During the installation phase, the installation program copies files to your local system. In the configuration phase, the installation program creates databases and configures the web application. If you encounter an error during the configuration phase, see ../com.ibm.xpd.support.doc/ts_wed_server_intro.html.
On the final configuration panel, click Next to return to the configuration wizard or Cancel to exit the configuration wizard.
The following section provides information to help you determine you have properly installed Client Management services.
