Installing MCS and Management Components on Windows

Management & 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 Windows environments. For information about installing in a UNIX environment, see Installing MCS and Management Components on UNIX.

Caution Disable any virus-scanning software before beginning any installation. Running virus-scanning software during installation can result in missing or corrupted files, or other installation errors.
Note 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
  1. If necessary, create your WebLogic domain.

  2. Insert the CD that contains the components you want to install into the CD drive.

    If the setup utility does not start automatically, browse to the CD root directory and double-click autosetup.exe.

    For information about the installation prompts, see Installation Prompts for Management Components in Windows.

  7. Note Before you add a server to an existing MCS cluster, make sure that you have selected to install all of the management components that are already installed on the other servers in that cluster.

    If you cannot install the same components as part of this installation process (for example, if the servers in the cluster have components from more than one Attachmate product), install this server as a standalone server, and then after you have installed all the necessary components, use the MCS console to add the server to an existing cluster.

  8. Verify that all selected components have been installed correctly, and then click Finish.
