Best practices for installing application clients
The following table offers tips for installing application clients on multiple platforms.
Operating environment Tip Linux and UNIX systems Spaces are not supported in the name of the installation directory on Linux and UNIX platforms. UNIX systems When client application installations are successful, the return code 1 is issued from the UNIX shell where you issued the /install command. Any other return code indicates an unsuccessful installation. Solaris systems Double-byte character set (DBCS) characters are not supported in the name of the installation directory on Solaris systems. Windows NT systems Spaces are not supported in the name of the installation directory.
Note that WAS Version 5.1 does not support the Windows NT platform.
All platforms Reserve at least 4 to 5MB free space in the target platform temporary directory. All platforms When specifying a different temporary directory while installing application clients, the following message is displayed if the target platform default temporary directory does not have enough free space to install application clientsUse the -is:tempdir installation option to specify a different temporary directory. For example, the following command uses /swap as a temporary directory during installationError writing file = There may not be enough temporary disk space. Try using -is:tempdir to use a temporary directory on a partition with more disk space../install -is:tempdir /swap" All platforms After the installation, when changing the installation settings for the WAS host name and the port number, edit the setupClient.bat for Windows or setupClient.sh for UNIX. Change the DEFAULTSERVERNAME and SERVERPORTNUMBER to the new WAS host name and port number, respectively. If the SERVERPORTNUMBER is not set, then the default is 2809. Review the following exampleThe setupClient.bar file or setupClient.sh file is located in the bin sub-directory under the application clients installation destination.set DEFAULTSERVERNAME=NDServerName set SERVERPORTNUMBER=9810
