For information about installing iManager 2.7 SP7, see NetIQ iManager 2.7 SP7 Installation Guide.
If the iManager 2.7.7 installation detects previously installed version of iManager 2.7.x, it prompts you the Upgrade window. If you choose to upgrade it, the installer replaces the existing JRE and Tomcat versions with the latest versions. This will also upgrade the iManager to the latest version. To prepare for the installation, review the checklist of prerequisites provided in NetIQ iManager 2.7 SP7 Installation Guide. iManager installs the following products during installation:
Do not install the standalone iManager release on a server running any OES version. Instead, you must use the OES version's patch channel to upgrade to the latest iManager version.
tar -zxvf iMan_277_linux.tgz /extracted_directory/iManager/installs/linuxdirectory. This path is relative to the directory where you copied or extracted the iManager files.
As a root or root-equivalent user, enter one of the following commands. To do a command-line (text) install, enter the following command:
./iManagerInstallLinux.binTo do a GUI install, enter the following command:
./iManagerInstallLinux.bin -i gui
After a successful install, the installer generates a configuration file (/var/log/installer.properties) with values based upon the questions asked during the install. This file can then be modified and used for a silent install. For more information about silent installation, see iManager 2.7 SP7 Installation Guide .
Note: After the upgrade, the server.xml and context.xml configuration files are saved as server.xml.usave and context.xml.usave files. If you have modified the configuration files, the changes are lost during the upgrade. Therefore, to save the configuration changes after upgrade, copy the modified configuration files into your new configuration files.
