This procedure describes how to prepare a host computer or virtual machine for BMC Capacity Optimization installation. Consult your system administrator for help in accomplishing this task.
You must have a supported Oracle Client installed on the host or virtual machine.
If you have access to the
root user, you can start with Installing the first machine directly. The required user, group, and system properties will be automatically set by the installer.
Follow the steps given below to prepare a host for installing BMC Capacity Optimization:
Create the system user, and its home folder. It is recommended to name the user group
cpit, user name
cpit, and the home directory
UMASK for cpit has been explicitly set to allow users in the same group to modify files, and allow every user in the system to read files and folders created by the cpit user.
Define the open file limit for the cpit user.
Defining this limit allows simultaneous execution of other operations on the same host. For example, importing data using ETL tasks.
Create a temporary folder for the installation files. BMC recommends you to use
Define the cpit user as the owner of the temporary folder.
Xvfb should be installed on Linux to install the product using the GUI.
