How to Install New Components
If any components were not installed initially, you can add them using the following procedure.
Follow these steps:
  1. Stop
    SpectroSERVER
    and all
    applications.
  2. Run the installation for the version of
    you currently have installed. Note the following guidelines:
    • Retain the default directory on the Destination Location dialog because all components must be installed in the same directory. You cannot install OneClick and
      SpectroSERVER
      in different directories.
    • If the component you are adding is listed on the Select Options dialog, select it. Components from the same version that are already installed appear selected and disabled; these components are not reinstalled. If the component you are adding does not appear, verify that the component is installed in the Review Settings dialog. The Review Settings dialog displays all components that are installed.
      Note: You cannot change the Installation Type when adding components. This option is available on the initial installation only.
    The
    installation installs the new components only.
  3. After all of the components are installed, reinstall the latest CA Spectrum maintenance, if any.

Distributed
SpectroSERVER
and Fault-Tolerant Configurations
To install more than one
SpectroSERVER
to manage different portions of your network, see the
Distributed
SpectroSERVER
Administrator section
before starting the installation.
also supports a fault-tolerant configuration so that one or more than one
SpectroSERVER
can function as standbys for a primary
SpectroSERVER
. In this scenario, a secondary
SpectroSERVER
is ready to take over management functions when the primary
SpectroSERVER
becomes unavailable. The special requirements for this configuration are explained in the
Distributed
SpectroSERVER
Administration section.
Upgrades with fault-tolerance are supported. For more information, see Upgrade Best Practices: Fault-Tolerant Deployments.
For information about OneClick Web server fault tolerance, see the section.
Reinstall
If problems occur during installation, you can reinstall
. You cannot install new components and reinstall at the same time. Reinstall
first and then install the new components.
If you want to change the installation owner for an existing installation, run the following program from a Windows bash shell before reinstalling
. This program removes the processd service so that the service is recreated during the reinstallation with the new installation owner:
<install dir>/lib/SDPM/processd.exe --remove
To reinstall
to change the installation owner, you must be reinstalling a full, major release; it cannot be a service pack or maintenance. For example,
9.3.x users must reinstall
9.3.0 first, then install
9.3.x again.
The following procedure is for the GUI-based installation. If you are using the distributed installation, set
same=yes
in the host installation information file before reinstalling
.
Follow these steps:
  1. Stop
    SpectroSERVER
    and all
    applications.
  2. Run the installation for the version of
    you currently have installed. Note the following guidelines:
    • Retain the default path on the Destination Location dialog because all components must be installed in the same directory.
    • In the Select Options dialog, no new selections can be made. Components that can be reinstalled are selected and disabled.
    • In the Host Evaluation dialog, a message indicates that nothing was selected for installation.
  3. Click Next on the Host Evaluation dialog.
  4. Click Reinstall on the Reinstall Option dialog.
  5. Click Preserve on the Preserve Files dialog.
    The existing user-modified files are preserved, and the Host Evaluation runs again to evaluate the new settings.
  6. Click Next and modify the installation dialogs, as needed.
  7. View the Review Settings dialog and ensure that all components are reinstalled. Click Next to proceed with the reinstallation.
    The reinstallation completes.
