This section should be used if any of the following conditions are true:
BMC recommends you to use the root user for the installation of Capacity Optimization components.
You will need to setup the host machine if you do not have administrative rights to install BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization.
If you have access to the
root user, you can start with Installing the Application Server and components directly. The required user, group, and system properties will be automatically set by the installer.
The following procedure will help you to prepare a host computer or virtual machine for BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization installation. Consult your system administrator for help in accomplishing this task.
Create the system user, and its home folder. It is recommended to name the user group
cpit, user name
cpit, and the home directory
UMASKfor 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.
You will need to manually set up the database users and tablespaces if you do not have a sysdba password.
Use a Database Administrator account to execute the following steps only if it is NOT possible for the Database Administrator to provide you the sysdba password to automatically create users and tablespaces while installing BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization. If you follow the procedure given below, you must select the Database users and tablespaces have been created externally option while performing the BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization installation.
If you are an Oracle database administrator and you need or choose to manually set up or migrate database users and tablespaces in BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization, do the following:
For information about BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization tablespaces and users, see Database requirements.
If you have Oracle-Managed Files enabled, and you are creating database users and tablespaces, you can use the
create_users_and_tablespaces.sql example database creation script. For all other situations, you can download and modify the
create_users_and_tablespaces_template_filesystem.sql template file to suit your Oracle DB datafile position.
To view the contents of the attached script files, see Contents of create_users_and_tablespaces.sql and Contents of create_users_and_tablespaces_template_filesystem.sql. If needed, modify the database creation script according to your policies. In particular, to modify default database users, roles and tablespace names, edit the first section of the SQL script.
