This section covers the following topics:
During the installation, the Sudo panel may appear. This happens because Entire Output Management depends on the installation of Natural where the Sudo panel may be used. For the installation of Entire Output Management, however, you do not need sudoers privileges.
Entire Output Management depends on Natural. Therefore, the user ID under which you run the Software AG Installer must not be longer than eight characters. If you use a longer user ID, an error message is shown. You can then exit the installer and use a different user ID or - in case you also want to install other products - return to the product selection tree and deselect Natural.
During the installation, you are asked to specify an installation directory. The installation of Entire Output Management requires the installation of Natural. If Natural is already installed, choose the directory of your Natural installation. Otherwise, see Installation in the Natural for UNIX documentation for detailed information regarding the installation directory. The user that you are using to install must have full read and write permissions to this directory.
The user who starts the installation owns all files that are installed.
The user file-creation mode mask (
determines the file permissions for newly created files. Make sure that the
umask command you are using for the installation will not prevent
users from accessing and executing the installed files. On UNIX systems, for
example, the command
umask 022 allows full access rights for the
file owner and read-only access rights for group members and others.
The Entire Output Management installation sets execution permissions
chmod ug+x) for the scripts located in the directory
Entire Output Management is a Natural application. Therefore, the rules for Natural also apply for Entire Output Management. For detailed information regarding side-by-side installations, see Installation in the Natural for UNIX documentation.
By default, a new
FNAT system file is created in the
installation directory during the installation of Natural
FNAT must always exist, and the global configuration file must
have an entry which defines this
Entire Output Management can only be installed into this
If you want to check or edit the settings in the global configuration file, use the Natural Configuration Utility.
The Software AG Installer maintains an internal list of installed
products, which must coincide with the add-ons that are currently installed in
FNAT. This is important for updates and uninstallations to
For this reason:
Do not install products into the
FNAT without the
use of the Software AG Installer.
Do not replace the default
install-dir/Natural/fnat) with another
Make sure to complete the installation of Entire Output Management by using the SYSPCI utility (this is explained later in this documentation).
If an error occurs due to the above-mentioned scenarios, the only way to solve the problem is a new installation. In some situations, one of the following workarounds may help:
Workaround 1: Complete the previous installation by using the SYSPCI utility.
Workaround 2: Uninstall the product and then start the installation once more.
During the installation of Entire Output Management,
product-specific information is written to the
FUSER system file
FUSER path must not contain a symbolic link.
When one of the first two digits of the version number changes, we consider this installation an upgrade installation.
When the first two digits of the version number remain the same and the third or fourth digit changes, we consider this installation an update installation.
An update installation does not prompt again for license files. The existing license files will be used.
