Unsupported product

 

This version of the documentation is no longer supported. However, the documentation is available for your convenience. You will not be able to leave comments.

The list of products that you can select to install is based on the installation type and, optionally, on a system role that you select. Some products do not require different installation types or system roles. If this is the case for the product that you are installing, the Select Type of Installation and the Select System Roles pages are not displayed.

To install products, you will be asked to enter product configuration information in the installation utility for the products that you are installing. The type and amount of information depends on the products and the type of installation that you are performing (Default or Custom). Consult the product documentation for details on the information that you must enter for each product.

The following sections describe installing a product using different installation types:

Selecting products by using the default installation path

If you select the default installation path, you will see a product selection tree similar to the one shown in the following figure. 

Example of a product selection tree view for PATROL products--default installation path 

 

The only selectable options shown are product solutions or groups, which are comprehensive sets of products designed to work together. If you are installing products using the default installation path, you can select only these comprehensive solutions or groups from the product selection tree. When you select a solution or group, all of the products included in that product set are automatically selected; you might not be able to clear individual products that you do not want to install. 

In addition, you are presented with subsequent pages to enter only mandatory product configuration information. 

Use the default installation path if your installation scenario is similar to one of the following examples:

  • You are installing products for the first time.
  • You would like to use default values for most product configuration information.
  • You are not familiar with the product set that you are installing.
  • You want to select a prepackaged group of products with predefined configurations.

Selecting products by using the custom installation path

If you select the custom installation path, you will see a product selection tree similar to the one shown in the following figure. 

Example of a product selection tree view for PATROL products--custom installation path 

 

The selectable options shown are solutions or groups and individual products. When you select a solution or group, all of the products that belong to that product set (including required and optional products) are automatically selected. However, by using the custom installation path, you can clear any of the optional products that you do not want to install. 

In addition, you are presented with subsequent pages to enter both mandatory and optional product configuration information about these products. 

Use the Custom installation path if your installation scenario is similar to one of the following examples:

  • You are upgrading a previous product installation (you can also use the Custom path if you are installing a product for the first time).
  • You would like to select and clear products within product groups.
  • You want to more fully customize your product configuration.
  • You are familiar with the product set that you are installing.
