To install components by means of a cmdfile, you must begin in GUI mode. To begin the installation process:
Verify that you are logged in as the “sybase” user with “root” privileges and that your environment is set up as described in the “Pre-installation tasks”.
Insert the Server CD in the CD-ROM drive.
The Solaris operating system automatically mounts the CD.
If you get CD-reading errors, check your operating system kernel to make sure the ISO 9660 option is turned on.
At the UNIX prompt, start the Studio Installer:
where cdrom the directory you specified when mounting the CD-ROM drive, and ./install begins the installation in GUI mode.
Select the type of installation to be performed. Backup Server, Monitor Server, and XP Server are installed, by default, with Adaptive Server.
Standard Install – a standard install installs all the components necessary for most users.
Full Install – a full install installs every component on the CD.
Customized Install – a customized install allows you to select which components to install. Certain components are automatically installed if they are required to run other selected components.
Select a new installation directory, or accept the default.
If you select Customized Install, the next window is the Component Selection screen, which allows you to specify the components to install.
Components that would be installed in a standard installation appear with a check in the check box to the left of the product name. You may select or deselect components from this list. Components with subcomponents have a More... button enabled. Click this button to select or deselect subcomponents.
Specify a directory. The component information is automatically generated when saving to the cmdfile. You may rename the cmdfile.
After the information is written to the cmdfile, the installer returns you to the GUI. Click Cancel, then Yes, to exit the Studio Installer.
To complete the installation using the cmdfile, go to a command-line prompt at the CD-ROM drive and enter:
./install -f path/filename
where path is the full path to the cmdfile, and filename is the name of the cmdfile.
When installation is complete, remove the CD from the drive:
You have successfully installed Adaptive Server onto your system; however, you do not yet have a fully functional product. To continue, see “Configuring the servers”.
Unmount the CD-ROM:
After Studio Installer is exited, the environment variables are set manually or with the.sh and .csh script files, automatically downloaded by the Studio Installer. The procedures for using the scripts files are provided in Chapter 4, “Installing Sybase Servers.”
Check the installation log file to see a record of the installation process. The server log file is located in:
