Bypass the server and storage agent prerequisites during installation

Question & Answer


Question

How do you bypass the Tivoli Storage Manager server and storage agent prerequisites during installation?

Answer

You can bypass the Tivoli Storage Manager server and storage agent prerequisites during the installation or upgrade.

On test servers only: Use the following command to bypass prerequisite checks such as the operating system and the required memory. Do not issue this command on a production server.

AIX, HP-UX, Linux, and Solaris
=========================================================================
For fresh installations, issue the following command:
Installation wizard: ./install.sh -g -vmargs "-DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true"
Console mode: ./install.sh -c -vmargs "-DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true"
Silent mode: ./install.sh -s -acceptLicense -vmargs "-DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true"

Otherwise, update the following file to add the -DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true flag:
Installation wizard: Installation Manager/eclipse/ibmim.ini
Console mode: Installation Manager/eclipse/tools/imcl.ini
Silent mode: Installation Manager/eclipse/tools/imcl.ini

Important: The dash in -DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true is required and the flag must be added on a new line after the -vmargs flag.

After the flag has been added, run in installer.

Windows
=========================================================================
For fresh installations, issue the following command:
Installation wizard: install.bat -g -vmargs "-DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true"
Console mode: install.bat -c -vmargs "-DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true"
Silent mode: install.bat -s -acceptLicense -vmargs "-DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true"

Otherwise, update the following file to add the -DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true flag:
Installation wizard: Installation Manager\eclipse\ibmim.ini
Console mode: Installation Manager\eclipse\tools\imcl.ini
Silent mode: Installation Manager\eclipse\tools\imcl.ini

Important: The dash in -DBYPASS_TSM_REQ_CHECKS=true is required and the flag must be added on a new line after the -vmargs flag.

After the flag has been added, run in installer.
