NOTES
* There are no limitations regarding the order in which you must install certified industry solutions. * When installing multiple industry solutions, you can defer the database update action (updatedb) until all industry solutions have been installed.
* You must install the base version of an industry solution before you install the fix pack for that industry solution.
* Refer to the download document for each certified industry solution for prerequisite information and a list of part numbers.
* Keep installation paths a reasonable length. Errors can occur during installation due to character length limitations.


1. Log on to the Maximo Asset Management 7.6 administrative workstation.
Download and uncompress the package for your industry solution.

If you do not uncompresss the package first and you attempt to use the
solutionInstallerGUI command against the package you downloaded,
you will receive an error stating 'The industry solution was not found in the certificate file.'

If you already have other v7.5.x industry solutions successfully installed on Maximo Asset Management v7.6, and you attempt to use the solutionInstallerGUI command against the package you downloaded without uncompressing it first, you might see the message 'This version of the product is already installed.' This message appears because the solutionInstallerGUI command refers to the certificate file which will only contain the information for the industry solution you installed previously.

2. Create a backup image of your Maximo Asset Management 7.6 administrative
workstation. When you install version 7.5 industry solutions in Maximo Asset
Management 7.6, you do not have an automated uninstallation method that
returns the system to its previous state.

3. Start the process solution installation program by changing to the
install_home\bin directory of your Maximo Asset Management 7.6 installation
and use the solutionInstallerGUI command.

Windows
solutioninstallerGUI.bat -pkgpath path_to_industry_solution_package -nl lang
-license accept

Linux
./solutioninstallerGUI.sh -pkgpath path_to_industry_solution_package -nl lang
-license accept

The -pkgpath option specifies the path to the industry solution package.
Replace path_to_industry_solution_package with the path to the industry solution
package file you are installing. The -license option is used to accept license
terms. The -nl option is used to select a language for the installation. For
example,

Windows
solutioninstallerGUI.bat -pkgpath
C:\TEMP\Spatial75_launchpad\Install\SPATIAL\Spatial75.zip
-nl en -license accept

Linux
./solutioninstallerGUI.sh -pkgpath
/tmp/Linear75_launchpad/Install/LINEAR/linear75.zip
-nl en -license accept

4. Read the information presented in the Warning message, and then click OK to
close the message and continue the installation.

5. Follow the steps in the installation program.

6. When the installation is complete, click OK to start the Maximo Asset
Management 7.6 configuration tool, or click Cancel to exit the installation
program. You might choose to not start the Maximo Asset Management 7.6
configuration tool yet because you have additional industry solutions to install
or if you have a fix pack that must be installed before you configure Maximo
Asset Management.

7. To complete the installation, from the Maximo Asset Management 7.6
configuration tool, select the Update Database and Build and Deploy
Application EAR Files operation. When this operation is complete, the
database is updated and application EAR files are rebuilt and optionally
redeployed on the application server.
