Installing Standalone Statistics Collection Manager Software


This chapter provides step-by-step procedures to install the CWM Release 11 Statistics Collection Manager software on a standalone workstation. The CWM Release 11 Statistics Collection Manager Standalone (SCMSA) software installation uses InstallShield to simplify the process.

Three types of machines are supported for CWM Release 11 SCMSA software as standalone platforms. They are low-end, mid-range, and high-end platforms. Table 8-1 describes the configuration for each platform.

Table 8-1 Sun Platform Requirements

Platform Type
Machine Type
Number of CPUs
Size of RAM
Hard Disk Drive
Swap Space
Number of Nodes Supported

Low End

Sun Ultra 10 with SCSI controller

at least
512 MB

One 9-GB drive

1 GB

Less than 20 nodes

Mid Range

Sun Ultra 60

2

at least
1 GB

One 9-GB drive

2 GB

20-100 nodes

High End

Sun Enterprise 450

at least 4

2 GB

Two 9-GB drives or disk array

4 GB

100-250 nodes



Note The minimum CPU speed requirement for all platforms is 300 MHz. The newer versions of the Sun Ultra 10 have a 450 MHz processor. All platforms require a 24-bit graphics card.

The maximum number of nodes supported by a given machine configuration is affected by the number of connection being supported by SCMSA. If the number of connections is high, the number of nodes specified in Table 8-1 may not be achieved


Before installing the CWM Release 11 SCMSA software on a standalone SCM workstation, the following software should have already been installed.

Solaris 2.7 Operating System

Install Solaris 2.7 according to the procedure described in Chapter 2.

Installing CWM Statistics Collection Manager Standalone

Installing the Statistics Collection Manager Standalone (SCMSA) software automatically creates a user with the name "svplus".


Note The windows in this section reflect a single disk install. Areas where choices differ for a multi-disk install are called out in the procedure.


To install the CWM Release 11 SCMSA software, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Log in to the workstation as user root.

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

Step 3 Enter the following commands:

# cd /cdrom/cdrom0
# ls 

Step 4 Check for the file InstallSCMSA.sh and begin the install process by entering the following command:

# ./InstallSCMSA.sh

The SCMSA Installation Welcome window is displayed, as shown in Figure 8-1.

Figure 8-1 SCMSA Installation Welcome Window

Step 5 Click Next on the Welcome window to continue.

The Install Standalone Collection Server or Parser window, Figure 8-2, is displayed.

Figure 8-2 Install Standalone Collection Server or Parser Window

Step 6 Select one of the three options displayed in the window and click Next. The user can select to have the Standalone Collection Server, the Standalone Parser, or both installed. When upgrading from a previous release of SCMSA, the user must select either option 1 or option 3.


Note See Appendix A for more details on the SCM server options.


Step 7 After selecting an option, click Next. The Meta Devices window is displayed as shown in Figure 8-3.

Orbix is the software component that provides the communication capability between CWM gateways.

Step 12 At the Install Orbix window, accept the default Yes and click Next.

The Enter the Domain Name window is displayed, as shown in Figure 8-8.

Figure 8-8 Enter the Domain Name Window

Step 13 At the Enter the Domain Name window, enter the domain name configured for the server workstation. This name allows the SCM application workstation access to the database.

Enter ping to ensure that the workstation and the domain is reachable.

Step 14 Click Next to display the SCMSA Choose Destination Directory window as shown in Figure 8-9.

Figure 8-9 Choose Destination Directory Window

In this release only the default directory (/usr/users/svplus) is be used.

Step 15 Click Next to display the Information about the SCMSA Upgrading procedure Window as shown in Figure 8-10.

The upgrade window is displayed only if option 1 or 3 was selected in the Install Standalone Collection Server and Parser window (see Figure 8-2), otherwise the next window to be displayed is the Installation Progress window (see Figure 8-11).

Step 17 Click Finish on the dialog box.

Doing so ends the software installation process, and the Install Shield window closes.

The first time (and only the first time) that SCMSA is installed, the system displays a message at this point stating that the kernel has been changed.

Step 18 Click OK to reboot the system.

The reboot sequence aligns the cylinders of your hard disks and gracefully shuts down the Solaris operating system.

The OK prompt is displayed.

Step 19 Push the CDROM eject button on the CDROM drive to eject the CWM Release 11 SCMSA software CD.
