Management and & Control Services (MCS) and management components can be installed under either Windows or UNIX. The following procedure explains how to install MCS and management components in UNIX environments. You can install using either the default Attachmate HTTP engine or a WebLogic application server. For information about installing in a Windows environment, see Installing MCS and Management Components on Windows.
|If you use WebLogic, your WebLogic domain must exist before you begin the installation. If you need to create a new domain, do so using one of the methods provided by BEA.|
|To install MCS and management components|
When you install EXTRA! components, if you are not logged on as the root user or if you do not have root-level rights, your installation location may be limited to your own home directory.
To avoid errors associated with attempting to run on a computer with limited RAM or virtual memory, edit attachmateinstalldir/catalina.sh before running the EXTRA! installation. Change the first value in the line
JAVA_OPTS=\"-Xms256m -Xmx256m \"\\
to something smaller, for example,
JAVA_OPTS=\"-Xms32m -Xmx256m \"\\.
If you do not make these changes, you may encounter problems such as being unable to log in to MCS. You can check for associated errors in the EXTRA_setup.log, such as "unable to allocate memory" or "heap allocation failure."
The Java VM heap size may need to be adjusted to allow for the number of sessions or threads running in your environment. As noted above, this option can be changed in attachmateinstalldir/catalina.sh, either before or after installation.
During installation, procedures, contained in InstalledLocation/EXTRA.PROC and EXTRAP.PROC, are created that can be added as members of your PROCLIB so that you can run EXTRA! Mainframe Server Edition as a z/OS started task. For information about started tasks, contact your system administrator or refer to the documentation for your host computer.
