Issue/Introduction

You are setting up a new Administrative UI on linux machine.

ADMINUI installer does not recognize the prerequisite installer is installed.



How does AdminUI installer detect whether the prerequisite installer is already installed?

Environment

Redhat OSAdminUI Prerequisite installer is installed.

Resolution

AdminUI Prerequisite installer would generate the following files in the user's home directory if it is successfully installed.

~/.Admin_UI_Prerequisite_Registry.registry

~/.com..zerog.registry.xml

 

.Admin_UI_Prerequisite_Registry.registry file contains the following information.

[[email protected] ~]$ cat .Admin_UI_Prerequisite_Registry.registry 

#***** Admin UI PREREQUISITE INSTALLER REGISTRY - Do not modify/delete ***** 

#This Registry will provide install location & version information for future reference 

AdminUI.Location=/appsbin/CA/siteminder/adminui 

AdminUI.Version=12.52.105.2112 

 

As you can see above, it has the path where the prerequisite is installed and the version.

 

.com..zerog.registry.xml file has the following information.

[[email protected] ~]$ cat .com.zerog.registry.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<registry install_date="2017-09-07 22:02:23" version="1.1" last_modified="2017-09-07 22:02:43">

</registry>

 

AdminUI installer looks for the above files(mainly the registry file) and install the binaries.

If the files are not found, then it would ask if you have any of the supported application servers(JBoss, WebSphere and WebLogic).
