Installing components with Studio Installer

The Studio Installer creates the target directory (if necessary) and installs all the selected components into that directory.

At the end of the installation, you can verify the product installation. You may need to perform additional configuration procedures before you can use some products.

As part of the installation, the Studio Installer sets most of the environment variables needed for Adaptive Server products. However, you must source other environment variables by running the SYBASE.csh or script file after exiting the Studio Installer as described in Chapter 4, “Installing Sybase Servers.”

NoteStudio Installer does not set jConnect or Java utility environment variables—you must set them manually using the instructions in Chapter 5, “Post-Installation Tasks.”

To install server components:

  1. Insert the Server CD in the CD-ROM drive.

  2. The Solaris operating system automatically mounts the CD. Double-click on the Install icon to begin the installation process.

    If the Studio Installer does not start automatically, enter,

    cd /cdrom/sybasecd

    where cdrom is the directory you specified when mounting the CD-ROM drive, and ./install starts the Studio Installer.

    NoteIf you get CD-reading errors, check your operating system kernel to make sure the ISO 9660 option is turned on.

  3. Select the type of installation to be performed.

    NoteYou must select Customized or Full install to install EFTS or EJB features.

    The Studio Installer generates an error message and stops the installation if you do not select any components for installation.

    NoteThe Studio Installer automatically installs any components that are required by the selected components, regardless of whether you deselected them.

    Click Back to select components, or Cancel to cancel the installation procedure.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Enter the target directory and click Next to proceed.

    If you select Customized Install, the next window is the Component Selection screen, which allows you to specify which 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 can select or deselect components from this list. Components with subcomponents have a More... button enabled. Click this button to select or deselect subcomponents.

  6. The Summary screen displays every component that is installed by the Studio Installer, the disk space required for each component, and the available disk space.

    If the target directory does not have enough free space, the available space appears in red. Clicking Next without sufficient hard disk space results in an error and stops the installation.

    Click Next.

  7. If the target directory does not exist, the Studio Installer prompts you to create it.

    Click Yes to proceed.

    Optionally, you can select Save from the Summary screen to save all the installation information into a cmdfile to proceed with the installation in a noninteractive, silent install. (See Appendix A, “Alternative Installation Methods.”)

    The Studio Installer installs the components on to the hard drive and displays a progress indicator.

    WARNING! Do not interrupt the installation process. If you do, you must manually remove all of the Adaptive Server and related files, and restart the installation in a clean environment.

Sybase Software Asset Manager (SySAM)

If you install any components without the appropriate license information, only Adaptive Server 12.5, without licensed features, is enabled.

WARNING! The following SySAM license manager instructions are for the installation of Adaptive Server on the primary license host. If you are installing Adaptive Server on a secondary server, see the SySAM licensing instructions in “SySAM in the network environment”.

  1. The Studio Installer prompts: “Do you have a Sybase Software Asset Management Certificate to register?”

    Click Yes.

  2. Enter information from the Sybase License Certificate for each Adaptive Server feature you have purchased. Entries are case sensitive.

    The installer records the information for the current feature in the license file and prompts you to enter information for an additional feature.

    See Chapter 3, “Sybase Software Asset Management (SySAM)” for detailed information about using the license manager.

  3. Click More. . . if you have purchased additional licensed features. The installer records the information for the current feature in the license file and prompts you to enter information for an additional feature.

  4. Click Continue Install after you have entered information from all of the Sybase License Certificates you have purchased. The installer records all license information and prompts you to configure the components you have installed.

    If you encounter problems, check the installation log file to see a record of the installation process. The file is located in $SYBASE/Installer.log.

  5. When the Studio Installer has completed the installation process, it asks if you want to configure the newly installed products and immediately launches the configuration utility if you select Yes.
