IBM Enterprise Installation guide is a very weak badly written book which obscures things instead of making them clear. 

There are two ways to install Tivoli management framework:

See  also Installing the Tivoli Management Framework

Preliminary steps

  1. Log in as root on the system that is to be the Tivoli server.
  2. If you are not on the console export display to your workstation. check that the DISPLAY environment variable is set to display correctly by exporting clock or some other X11 applet to the terminal
  3. Ensure that adequate disk space is available in each file system where the files will be installed (refer to the Tivoli Management Framework Release Notes for disk space requirements).
  4. Create a local temporary directory, for example /tmp_install and make this directory current.
  5. Create an installation directory (for example, /opt/Install ) to contain the installation utilities and associated files. In this example, you would enter the following command. If you copied the content of CD into some directory you still need to move into a different directory for the script to operate correctly.
  6. Change to the installation directory. For example cd /opt/Install
  7. Untar CD1 tar file into a directory. for example /opt/TMFMedia/Disk1
  8. Verify that the current directory in temporary install directory and run the WPREINST.SH script from directory with CD 1 content. This script creates links to the files used during the installation process.

    For example:

    /opt/TMFMedia/Disk1/WPREINST.SH
    Here is part of the content of the script
    # All Rights Reserved
    # Licensed Material - Property of TIVOLI Systems, Inc.
    #
    # Component Name: 2.0 Installation
    #
    # $Date: 1996/03/24 20:41:56 $
    #
    # $Revision: 1.8 $
    #
    # Primary Author: Francis Sullivan
    #
    # This script is a front end for making it possible to install the
    # Tivoli Management Platform kind of directly off of the media.
    # Execute this script from the directory where you want to shadow
    # the media to:
    #       mkdir /shadow/dir
    #       cd /shadow/dir
    #       /path/to/cdrom/WPREINST.SH
    
    # generated by wprepcd.pl
  9. Export display:

    export DISPLAY=sandbox.rockaway.firma.com:0

  10. While you are in your Install directory, run the command displayed at the end of the preinstallation script output. For example, the following command can be used is CDROM is mounted as /cdrom:

    ./wserver -c /cdrom

  11. You will see the first of two windows on you X display.

    In this window, do the following:

    1. In the Specify Directory Locations section, specify the paths to the directories where the libraries, binaries, database, manual pages, X Window System resource files, and message catalogs are to be installed, or accept the defaults.
    2. Select "Create Specified Directories" and Arrange for start of the Tivoli daemon at system (re)boot time. Accept the default locations.
    3. Click Set.
  12. In the second Install Tivoli Server window accept default values, except do not enter information for the Installation Password.

    In this window, do the following:

    1. Do not type anything in the License Key field. This value is no longer used.
    2. Choose an encryption level, None, Simple, or DES, from the Encryption Level options (usually simple suffice). DES encryption provides the highest level of security for network traffic. For a detailed explanation of the encryption levels, refer to the section on security and encryption levels in the Tivoli Management Framework Planning for Deployment Guide.
    3. Type an installation password in the Installation Password field, if desired. If you specify a password, this password must be used to install managed nodes, to create interregion connections, and to perform any installation using Tivoli Software Installation Service.

      Note: During installation the specified password becomes the installation and the region password. To change the installation password, use the odadmin region set_install_pw command. To change the region password, use the odadmin region set_region_pw command. If you change one of these passwords, the other password is not automatically changed.

    4. Type the name of the initial policy region in the Region Name field. This policy region will appear on the Tivoli desktop of the root administrator.
    5. The TMR Server Name field contains the host name of the UNIX machine. To perform a remote installation, type the host name of the remote machine. To perform a remote installation, you must have the appropriate trusted host access. Add an entry for your local system in the /.rhosts file of the remote system.

      Note: The login shell of the user must be Bourne or Korn shell.

    6. If you want to display or change the installation options, click Install Options.
    7. Click Install & Close to begin the installation and close the Install Tivoli Server window when the installation is complete.

      The installation process prompts you with a TME(R) Install window. It provides the list of operations that take place during the installation and warns you of any problems that you might want to correct before installing this product.

Messages are displayed in the window indicating the status and completion of the installation.

Tivoli desktop windows will be automatically launched; wait until the installation completes before using it.

When the installation is complete, remove the installation directory that was created in step 5. In this example, you would enter the following command:

rm -r /usr/local/Tivoli/install_dir

Installing from the Command Line

To install the Tivoli server on a UNIX operating system using the UNIX command line, perform the following steps:

  1. ___ Log in as root on the system that is to be the Tivoli server.
  2. ___ Set the DOGUI environment variable to no, using the following commands:
    DOGUI=no
    export DOGUI
  3. ___ Ensure that adequate disk space is available in each directory where the files will be installed (refer to the Tivoli Management Framework Release Notes for disk space requirements). Directories are specified as options to the wserver command in step 8.

    Note: Disk space requirements are checked by the Tivoli installation. If the disk space is inadequate, messages are posted.

  4. ___ If required by your operating system, mount the Tivoli Management Framework 1 of 2 CD using the appropriate UNIX command. Refer to your operating system documentation for instructions on how to mount devices and how to determine the device name. In this example, the CD is mounted at /cdrom/cdrom0.
  5. ___ Create an installation directory (for example, /usr/local/Tivoli/install_dir) to contain the installation utilities and associated files. In this example, you would enter the following command:
    mkdir /usr/local/Tivoli/install_dir
  6. ___ Change to the installation directory. In this example, you would enter the following command:
    cd /usr/local/Tivoli/install_dir
  7. ____ If the target directory exists (for example from previous unsuccessful instillations) remove it before proceeding
  8. ____ Run the WPREINST.SH script from the Tivoli Management Framework 1 of 2 CD. This script creates links to the files used during the installation. Always use an absolute path. In this example, you would enter the following command:
    /opt/TMF_media/Disk1/WPREINST.SH
  9. ____ Begin the installation. The following example installs the Tivoli server on the local machine with the following characteristics:
    ./wserver -c /cdrom/cdrom0 BIN=/opt/TMF/bin \
    LIB=/opt/TMF/lib ALIDB=/opt/TMF/db \
    MAN=/opt/TMF/man APPD=/opt/TMF/X11 CAT=/opt/TMF/cat \
    RN=Test-Region AutoStart=1 \
    SetPort=1 CreatePaths=1 IP=Tivoli4Ever
    Note: If you need to reinstall the Tivoli server, add an exclamation mark (!) at the end of the directory paths. (You can also replace a path name with the exclamation mark.) The exclamation mark forces Tivoli to reinstall the directories if they already exist. You must overwrite the database, or the reinstalled Tivoli server will not work properly. The following command line reinstalls the Tivoli server installed with the preceding command, overwriting each directory:
    ./wserver -c /cdrom/cdrom0 BIN=! LIB=! \
    ALIDB=! MAN=! APPD=! CAT=!  \
    RN=NoonTide-Region AutoStart=1 SetPort=1 \
    CreatePaths=1 IP=Tivoli4Ever
  10. The command displays a list of actions that will take place during the installation and issues a confirmation prompt. To continue the installation process, type y and press Enter.

    Status information displays on your terminal as the installation proceeds.

  11. If your DISPLAY environment variable is set, the Tivoli desktop is displayed partway through the installation process. Do not use it until the installation is complete. If the DISPLAY environment variable is not set, you can start the Tivoli desktop by performing the following steps:
    1. Set your DISPLAY environment variable.
    2. Initialize the Tivoli environment variables as described in Setting Tivoli environment variables.
    3. Run the tivoli command.

      For additional information about the tivoli command, refer to the Tivoli Management Framework Reference Manual.

  12. When the installation of the Tivoli server is complete, remove the installation directory.

For additional information about the wserver command, refer to the Tivoli Management Framework Reference Manual.

If necessary install (or launch from your sever) the Tivoli desktop, Version 4.1

  1. Source the Tivoli environment:
    1. Run the /etc/Tivoli/setup_env.sh script.
    2. Start the bash shell by typing bash.
  2. Start the Tivoli desktop:
    1. Launch the Tivoli desktop with the tivoli command.
    2. The Tivoli desktop is displayed.

Create the first endpoint

Assuming aix5001 is the TMR server and that convention for naming endpoint is hostname-ep

winstlcf -Y -d /opt/tivoli/lcf -L"-Dlcs.login_interfaces=aix5001 -Dbcast_disable=1 -Dlcs.machine_name=aix5001-ep" aix5001

Create the first gateway

Assuming the convention to name of gateways is hostname-gw

wcrtgate -h aix5001 -n aix5001-gw

Install patches for Tivoli Management Framework and TEC

  1. Download the latest fixpack.
  2. Extract the files to a temporary directory.
  3. From the Tivoli desktop, select Desktop --> Install --> Install Patch. The Install Patch window is displayed.
  4. If the Select Product to Install list contains the correct patch, go to step 8; otherwise, continue to step 5.
  5. Click Select Media. The File Browser dialog box is displayed.
  6. Navigate to the directory that contains the installation image. The installation directory contains the product index (.IND) file.
  7. Click Set Media & Close to save the new media path and return to the Install Patch dialog box.
  8. Select the patch.
  9. Click Install & Close and Continue to Install. Messages are displayed in the window indicating the status and completion of the installation.
  10. Repeat this procedure for each required patch.
