3.12 Specifying the Installation Settings

3.12.1 Customizing the Software Selections

IMPORTANT:To install any of the OES patterns, you must customize the software selections. If you don’t make any selections, only the base OES packages are installed. However, you can install any of the patterns after the base OES installation is complete. See Installing or Configuring OES Services on an Existing OES 2018 SP2 Server.

To customize which software packages are installed on the server:

  1. On the Installation Settings page, click Software.

    None of the OES Services is selected by default. This lets you fully customize your OES server.

  2. You can do the following to customize your software selections:

    • Select OES Services: You can select any number of the OES Services patterns as long as you avoid unsupported service combinations.

      A description of each pattern displays to the right of the pattern when it is selected. For a description of OES Services patterns and the components selected with each pattern, see Table 2-5.

      IMPORTANT:If you deselect a pattern after selecting it, you are instructing the installation program to not install that pattern and all of it dependent patterns. Rather than deselecting a pattern, click Cancel to cancel your software selections, then click the Software heading again to choose your selections again.

      Selecting only the patterns that you want to install ensures that the patterns and their dependent patterns and packages are installed.

      If you click Accept and then return to software pattern selection page, the selections that you made become your base selections and must be deselected if you want to remove them from the installation proposal.

      Selecting a pattern automatically selects the other patterns that it depends on to complete the installation.

    • Customize Your Selections: You can view the details of your selection and add or remove specific packages for the installation by clicking Details.

  3. When you have selected the software components that you want to install, click Accept.

  4. (Conditional) If the prompt for Automatic Changes displays, click Continue.

  5. (Conditional) If prompted, resolve any dependency conflicts.

3.12.2 Configuring the Firewall Settings

For security reasons, a firewall is started automatically on each configured interface. The configuration proposal for the firewall is updated automatically every time the configuration of the interfaces or services is modified.

Many of the OES services require an open port in the firewall. Table 3-2 shows the ports that are automatically opened when each listed OES service is configured.
