Installing and configuring IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor for high availability from the command line

You can install the IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor event processors (EPs) and the web server for a high availability environment on a UNIX operating system from a command line.

  • InstallAnywhere requires temporary space for some of its operations during installation. If there is insufficient space in the system temp, it attempts to extract the installer into your home directory. Ensure that the system temp has sufficient space for the installation.
    Tip: You can force InstallAnywhere to use a different location for temp space by specifying the IATEMPDIR variable as shown in the following example:
    export IATEMPDIR=$HOME 
  • In some UNIX environments, the installer reports that there is not enough disk space to complete the installation when there really is sufficient disk space. To bypass this situation, complete the following steps:
    1. Type the following commands:
    2. Run the IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor installer.

To install the IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor event processors and the web servers for a high availability environment on a UNIX operating system from a command line:

  • If you are upgrading from a previous version of IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor, see Release Notes.
  • Make sure all EPs that have been installed in the cluster are running.
  1. Go to the UNIX directory where you extracted the files.
  2. Copy the CCInstall64.bin file to a directory on your computer.
  3. Go to the directory where you copied CCInstall64.bin.
  4. Type sh CCInstall64.bin -i console in the command line and press Enter.
  5. Respond to the installation prompts.
  6. Configure IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor by running the command from the installation directory/bin directory.
  7. Follow the installation prompts.
  8. After the installation completes, run configCC.bat from <installed location>/bin folder to configure IBM Sterling Control Center.
    Attention: During the Event Processor Name installation step, you can use only alphanumeric characters to name the event processor. The event processor name must be unique in the database, and can be no more than 10 characters.

    The installation program installs the Java™ Runtime Environment (JRE) that is required to run IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor.

    If the installation fails, review the installation log IBM_Sterling_Control_Center_V6.3.0_Install_<mm_dd_yyyy_hh_mm_ss>.log that is located in the installation directory to determine the cause.

Repeat these steps for every new event processor you want to install and configure for high availability.
