Consult the CWM release notes, they may contain a more up-to-date list of patches.

You can display which patches are already installed in the CWM workstation by entering the Solaris showrev -p command. Patches can be obtained from SunService (if the user has a SunSpectrum contract) or from the SunSolve Recommended and Security Patches web site.

Patches are available to Sun Microsystems customers over the World Wide Web at this URL:
www.sunsolve.sun.COM/pub-cgi/show.pl?target=home

If the search facility on the SunSolve site is used, search for the search ID number and do not include the two-digit patch version number. Patches with the highest version numbers should be used.


Note If the CWM workstation is behind a corporate firewall, it may not be possible to connect to the Internet. In this case the workstation should be removed and set to a location where an Internet connection can be made. After the patches have been downloaded, the workstation can again be located behind the firewall again.



Step 1 At the Sun Microsystems web site, click on Patch Finder.

Step 2 Under "Recommended and Security Patches" click on 7 (nn.nM), [where nn.n is a size in Mbytes,
for example 7 (48.9M)].

Step 3 Download the file. The file downloads under the filename of 7_recommended.zip.

Step 4 Unzip the file on the workstation and in the newly created 7_recommended directory, enter the
install cluster command.

Step 5 Install individual patches by entering the patchadd command.


First Time Login to Solaris

After installing the Sun Solaris 2.7 operating system, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Log in to the workstation as user root. Using the Solaris Login interface, select CDE.

Step 2 Close the File Manager and Help windows, leaving only the CDE menu bar.

Step 3 Right click on the blank screen. Highlight Tools, then Terminal.

Move this terminal window to the upper right corner of the screen.

Step 4 Right click on the blank screen select Hosts, then select Terminal Console.

Lower the height to display four lines and move this window so that it rests above the CDE menu bar. This window provides a display of workstation system messages.

Step 5 Left-click the CDE icon labeled TTT.

The Style Manager window is displayed.

Step 6 Left-click on Screen. Click screen saver on and screen lock off. Click OK.

If you prefer to use the screen saver, highlight choice(s) and start the screen saver at 29 minutes. Start the screen lock at 30 minutes. Click OK.

Step 7 Click on Backdrop and select GrayDk, click Apply.

Do the same to all four screens, labeled One, Two, Three, and Four in the CDE icon bar. In screen Four click OK and return to screen One. This helps to conserve workstation resources.

Step 8 Click the CDE icon labeled TTT. Click Startup in the Style Manager. Click Set Home Session and click OK.

The next login session will use this same screen configuration. Click OK and close the Style Manager.

Step 9 Type eject in the Terminal Window to remove the Solaris 2.7 CD, if necessary.


CiscoView 5.4 Considerations

Installation of CiscoView is simply clicking Yes to one of the CWM server screens when asked during the installation process. A standalone procedure for installing CiscoView is also available that can be used to re-install CiscoView without re-installing CWM.


Note Instructions for the standalone installation of CiscoView and for uninstalling CiscoView are included in Chapter 5.


Netscape Communicator should be installed at this point in the process. It must be installed before CWM and CiscoView are installed.

Installation of Netscape Communicator

The Sun Microsystems Netscape Communicator for the Solaris package (version 4.76) is included on the Cisco-provided CWM CD-ROM#2 under the filename of NSCPcom.sparc.tar.gz

Netscape Communicator should be installed before the installation of CWM and CiscoView. Netscape Communicator requires:

20Mbytes of free disk space

The basic Solaris software end-user cluster (SUNWCuser) be installed.

Install Netscape Communicator using the following steps.


Step 1 Log in to the CWM workstation as user root.

Step 2 Insert the Cisco WAN Manager Release 11 CD-ROM # 2 into the CD-ROM drive.

Step 3 The NSCPcom.sparc.tar.gz file is located on the CD-ROM in the tools directory. You can check that it is present by changing to the tools directory and listing the files as in the following commands.

# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/110tools
# ls 

Note The 110 tools directory on the CD#2 also contains a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader under the filename of sunsparc-rs-405.tar.gz. This software can be used for viewing documentation in the pdf format.


Step 4 Copy the Netscape file to the workstation hard drive.

cp /cdrom/cdrom0/110tools/NSCPcom.sparc.tar.gz /tmp

Step 5 Copy the gzip utility to the workstation hard drive.

cp /cdrom/cdrom0/110tools/gzip /tmp

Step 6 Change to the tmp directory.

cd /tmp

Step 7 Change the permission of the copied gzip file so that it can be executed.

chmod 555 /tmp gzip

Step 8 Unzip the file the Netscape Communicator file.

./gzip -d /tmp/NSCPcom.sparc.tar.gz


Note The gzip utility is a compression software tool that compresses files and assigns them the.gz suffix. Use gzip -d to decompress .gz files. In addition to being provided on CD#2, installing CWM automatically installs gzip in the usr/users/svplus/tools folder and its path is defined in the users account.


Step 9 Untar the file.

tar xvf /tmp/NSCPcom.sparc.tar

Step 10 If not already logged in as root, log in now.

myhhost% su
Password:
#

Step 11 Install Netscape Communicator

pkgadd -d /tmp NSCPcom

This command installs the Netscape Communicator package in the /opt/NSCPcom directory.

Step 12 Add the /opt/NSCPcom directory to the PATH variable.

setemv PATH $PATH':/opt/NSCPcom'

Note The instructions for uninstalling Netscape Communicator are included in
Chapter 5.
