Before You Install
Note You must meet all preinstallation tasks listed in Chapter 2, "Preinstallation" before continuing. Complete these tasks before installing the Cisco VAMS 1.5 software package.
Before you install the Cisco VAMS 1.5, refer to the latest release notes for this solution, available online at Cisco.com. The release notes contain additional information that became available after the initial release of the solution.
Each release note contains:
•Upgrade notes—additional information and considerations for upgrading.
•Uninstalling software—detailed instructions for removing previous installations of software.
•Patch releases and enhancements—describes any enhancements provided by patches.
•Open and resolved caveats—describes any expected behavior that may or may not require a workaround.

Install the Cisco VAMS 1.5 Software
To install the Cisco VAMS 1.5:
Step 1 Log in to the server as the root user.
Step 2 Insert the Cisco VAMS 1.5 installation DVD into the DVD drive on your system.
Step 3 Check the system prerequisites such as required disk space. See Chapter 1, "Overview."
Step 4 If an older version of the Cisco VAMS exists, uninstall it. See Chapter 4, "Uninstalling the Cisco Video Assurance Management Solution 1.5."
Step 5 Change the directory to the root directory on the DVD.
Step 6 Start the installation script.
The installation script prompts you to enter site-specific values for the installation.
Step 7 When prompted to enter login information for the Cisco ANA, you must enter an administrative-level user ID and password. If necessary, obtain this information from your administrator.
Step 8 If your login information does not authenticate, retry by entering r, or bypass the Cisco ANA authentication by entering y.
The specified login and password do not authenticate.
Do you wish to continue with the installation? [Y(es)/N(o)/R(etry)]:
If you enter
y to bypass authentication, you must run the
setCimsCredentials.sh script later. That script is in the
iptv/scripts/ directory. The Cisco VAMS 1.5 will not operate correctly if you do not run the
setCimsCredentials.sh script after a failed authentication.
Step 9 After successful installation, continue to Chapter 5, "Configuring the Components of the Cisco Video Assurance Management Solution 1.5."
