Step 1- Plan your CA SDM Installation

Before you start installing CA SDM, ensure that you have reviewed the following considerations:

Before you start installing CA SDM, ensure that you have reviewed the following considerations:
(Recommended) After you review the considerations, keep the following checklist in place while you are installing CA SDM, to ensure that you do not miss any critical step.
Select
Task
Comments
 
Installed the database of your choice (SQL Server or Oracle).
 
 
Decided the type of configuration (advanced availability or conventional) that you would want to implement.
 
 
Decided the number of servers required for the CA SDM installation.
 
 
Ensured that the hardware and software requirements are met.
 
 
To help ensure that you can configure the product and components on the
Microsoft SQL Server
, you completed the following steps:
    1. Enabled TCP/IP on the computer on which you want to perform the installation and configuration.
    2. Obtained the following information:
        • The named instance of the server that is running Microsoft SQL Server.
        • The Microsoft SQL Server database user name and password.
        • The Microsoft SQL Server database port number.
 
 
To help ensure that you can configure the product and components on
Oracle
, you obtained the following information:
    1. Whether the Oracle database is local or remote.
    2. Whether you need to create tablespaces.
    3. The Net service name.
    4. The DBA user name and password.
    5. The data and index tablespace name.
    6. The complete path for the tablespace.
    7. JDBC connection information, including the system identifier (SID) and listener port.
 
 
 
(For configuring to a 64-bit Oracle database on a 64-bit computer)
Pointed the system library path to the 32-bit Oracle libraries. The 32-bit Oracle libraries are found in $ORACLE_HOME/lib32.
 
 
 
(For configuring a 64-bit Oracle 11g database on a 64-bit computer)
Installed the Oracle 32-Bit Client on the server and while configuring the database pointed the system library path to the 32-bit Oracle libraries.
This step is required for both configuration and runtime. Also, created a net service name on the Oracle client to point to the Oracle database server instance.
 
 
 (If you are using an Oracle database and you want to use existing tablespaces)
Created a Data tablespace that is at least 400 MB, and an Index tablespace that is at least 100 MB before configuring CA SDM.
 
 
Increased the hardware configuration of the DBMS server. Each of the servers is directly connected to the database, leading to an increased resource contention at the DBMS level.
 
 
If you are installing CA SDM in the pure IPV6 environment, the installation may fail. Ensure that the NX_PROTOCOL_ONLY variable is set to IPV6 and click on Retry Install.
 
 
(If you plan to install Unified Self-Service with CA SDM) Before you install Unified Self-Service, download Liferay CE 6.1.2 GA3 edition zip file.
Do not Install Liferay Manually as the installer unzips the downloaded file and installs Liferay.
 
 
(If you would like to identify performance problems in CA SDM) For a Windows installation, install the pslist.exe tool and add its directory path variable to the system path variable. For more information, see the How to Identify Performance Problems in CA SDM topic.
 
 
(If you have CA Business Intelligence 3.3 and if you want reporting capability) Install CA Business Intelligence Release 4.1 SP3 and then install CA SDM
 
 
For CA Business Intelligence ODBC services to start properly, export the library path, as follows:
    • (For AIX) Export LIBPATH=$LIBPATH:<CA_SharedComponent>/lib:<NX_ROOT>/lib
      Example:
       Export LIBPATH=$LIBPATH:/opt/CA/SC/lib:/opt/CAisd/lib
    • (For Solaris/Linux) Export LD_LIBRARARY_PATH=$ LD_LIBRARARY_PATH:/opt/CA/SC/lib:<NX_ROOT>/lib
      Example: 
      Export LD_LIBRARARY_PATH=$ LD_LIBRARARY_PATH:/opt/CA/SC/lib:/opt/CAisd/lib
