Setup command

Service Assurance Manager Server


setup-CONSOLE-10_1_12_0-win.exe. To setup, double click the executable file.

Note: : The InstallAnywhere wizard dialog box appears and closes. The Shutdown Programs dialog box and the Welcome screen appear.
  1. Click OK in the Warning dialog box.

    If stopping services is necessary, you will be prompted with specific instructions later in the installation process.

  2. Click Next in the Welcome screen.
  3. Read and accept the end user license agreement and click Next.

  4. If the installation program detects an existing installation of the same product, the Upgrade or Install screen appears. In the Upgrade or Install screen, select Install products to a new directory.

  5. Click Next to accept the default installation directory or type your preferred directory and click Next.

    The default installation directory is:

    If you specify a directory, the directory name cannot contain spaces. If the specified directory does not exist, it will be created. If you do not have write privileges, an error message appears.

  6. Click Next.

  7. In the Services Selection screen, select the products that you want to install as services and click Next. If you do not install services at this point, you will need to install them manually later.

    For Service Assurance Manager services, you have two choices:

    • Select VMware Smart Assurance Servelet Engine if you plan to run only the ic-business-dashboard service.

  8. In the Broker Specification screen, specify the VMware Smart Assurance Broker.

    • If you are installing the Broker as a service or server way, specify the port and hostname.

      • If the Broker is already running on this host, keep the default values.

      • If the Broker is running on another host, specify the hostname of that system and the port that the Broker uses.

        Click Next to continue.

  9. The Installation Criteria screen appears. Review the list of products that will be installed and the target installation directory. At the bottom of the list, the total amount of disk space that is required for the selected products is provided so that you can verify that adequate disk space is available. To install the products, click Next and the Installation Progress screen appears.

  10. Upon completion, the Installation Summary shows informational messages such as successful confirmations, error messages, and warnings. Investigate any errors or warnings.

    If Next appears, your system needs to be rebooted because one or both of the following tasks are pending on the system:

    • A system-protected file was replaced during the installation and requires a restart.

      • A pending restart was triggered by another application or by an operating system patch installation.

        Click Next and then reboot your system. Otherwise, click Finish to exit the installation.

        The installation program writes an install log file to the BASEDIR/smarts/setup/logs directory, unless the installation fails at the very start, in which case the installation program writes the log file to the /tmp directory. The log file is a text file with the naming convention Install.<product>.<productversionNumber>.log.

  11. If your product is part of a deployment that requires the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, a U.S. government computer security standard governing cryptographic modules, follow the instructions in “Support for FIPS 140-2 for 9.5.1 products” on page 34.

  12. Next steps on page 38 provides post-installation tasks.
