What are the requirements for running the Installation System?
The Installation System requires:
How much space do I need to install a product?
During the installation process, the Installation System determines space requirements for the SMP/E target, distribution, and auxiliary data sets based on the products that you selected for installation. The amount of space allocated is padded to allow for growth for maintenance and updates. You can increase the amounts for the target and distribution libraries in the project. The generated $100DOC member lists the amount of DASD needed for the SMP/E libraries.
If you are using objects that DB2 defined, you must have a previously defined storage group (STOGROUP). The Installation System does not define STOGROUPs.
What are the operating system and database requirements for my product?
Use the BMC Solution and Product Availability and Compatibility (SPAC) utility to determine the platform, database, technology, and third-party software requirements for a product.
Do additional requirements apply to the product I am installing?
See product-specific information.
