Installing

The diagrams and table in this topic provide overviews of the installation process and links that you can use to access more detailed information about each step. 

The installation processes in this section are suited to the following audience:

  • TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor (TMTM) administrators
  • WebSphere MQ administrators
  • Database administrators
  • Network administrators
  • System administrators for every platform on which the product is installed

When implementing the TMTM product, you can choose between two equally fine installation paths.

Review the planning topics.

  • The Planning topics include system requirements, database performance recommendations, security planning guidelines, network ports, and license entitlements.
  • If you plan to use Active Directory Delegate Mode Security you need to know the Active Directory Domain Name and possibly the base Fully Qualified Domain Name from the Domain you wish to authenticate against. Your Active Directory Network Administrator is able to supply this information. You might also need to set up Active Directory security groups to define user authorities. See Configuring Active Directory security.
  • To determine whether to install TrueSight Middleware Administrator, see TrueSight Middleware Administrator integration options.
