This section describes how to use the console-based installer to install Network Configuration Manager. When installing Network Configuration Manager, the servers must be installed in the following order.

  • Stand-alone Database server (if applicable)

  • Combination server or Application server

  • Device server (if applicable)

    The installation must berepeated for each server. If you are installing a distributed server configuration, with separate Application server and Device servers, you must first install Network Configuration Manager on the Application server, and then install Network Configuration Manager on the Device servers.

    Note:

    At setup, the Device server registers itself with the Application server. Before installing the Device servers, ensure the Application or Combination servers have the same date and time as the candidate Device server. If not, the Device server cannot communicate with the Application server, this step fails, and you must reinstall the Device server.

    To start the installation, you have to run the script install.sh. When you run the script, the command prompt screen appears with four options:

  • Type 1, and press Enter to install NCM Core product, Device Drivers and Documentation.

  • Type 3, and press Enter to install NCM Smarts Adapters.

  • Type 4, and press Enter to install NCM Core product and NCM Smarts Adapters.

  • Type 5, and press Enter to exit the installation.
