Start the Installer, Provide General Information, and Choose the Products to Install
As you go through the Software AG Installer, you will be asked for various types of information, such as product license files and database connection parameters. Gather this information before starting the installer.
Read the requirements in Using the Software AG Installer (for example, the requirement to create a user account that has the proper privileges for Windows and that is non-root for UNIX). Follow the instructions in that guide to start the installer and provide general information such as proxy server, release to install, installation directory, and how to use the product selection tree.
When you install on a UNIX system, the installer might ask whether to use sudo and related scripts. If you want to have the installer run the script, the user under which you run the installer must be in the sudoers configuration. If you are creating or installing from an installation script, the option to use sudo is not available because the installer does not store the sudo password in scripts, for security reasons. Instead you will perform certain tasks after installation as described later in this chapter.
Unless otherwise stated for a specific product, do not install products from this release into a Software AG directory that contains products from any other release. Unless otherwise stated for a specific product, you cannot mix products from different releases in the same installation directory; if you do so, you will experience problems or be unable to access functionality.
On the product selection tree, select the products to install.
*If you select packages for Integration Server or Microservices Container, the installer will copy the packages into a package repository in the product installation. The installer will also create a server instance and will ask whether to install all packages in the package repository on the server instance. On the language pack selection tree, the installer will copy all language packs you select into the package repository and will always install them on the server instance. After installation, you can create additional server instances and install packages and language packs from the package repository on those server instances and the server instance created during installation. For instructions, see the webMethods Integration Server Administrator’s Guide.
*The licenses for CloudStreams or Enterprise Gateway allow only partial functionality of their host server (that is, Integration Server or Microservices Container). Install each product on its own host server. Do not install other products on that host server because those other products might not work properly.
*If you install My webMethods Server, and later install Business Console, Task Engine, or My webMethods user interfaces in a separate run of the installer, those components are installed on all My webMethods Server instances in the target installation directory.
*If you install Designer > Composite Applications, also select Infrastructure > Shared Platform > Platform.
After the product selection tree, the installer displays the language pack selection tree. For information on language packs, see the international operating environments appendix in this guide. The installer then displays panels (GUI mode) or prompts (console mode) that ask for product configuration information. Most are self-explanatory, so this section shows only the panels that require explanation. The information and fields on the prompts is identical to the information and fields on the panels.
Make sure all ports you specify on panels or in response to prompts are not already being used by other products on your machine. The installer cannot detect whether ports are in use when products are shut down, and the shutting down of products is a requirement for running the installer. See the list of default ports used by Software AG products.
