CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration

Issue/Introduction

We cannot use /tmp for application installs

Can we use /ca/tmp to install all CAPM components?

Cause

We use InstallAnywhere as our installation tool.

You can set IATEMPDIR to point to an alternate location for /tmp

Environment

Release : 20.2

Component : PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT INSTALLATIONS/UPGRADES

Resolution

  1. If you are installing as root, you can set this variable before running the install of any CAPM system:

export IATEMPDIR=/my/largefolder

Then call the install.

Or you can set the new tmp while calling the install:

IATEMPDIR=/<directory> <installername>

 

  1. If you are installing as a sudo user, you must either add the variable to the sudoers file

Or call the command like this:

sudo IATEMPDIR=/<directory> <installername>

E.G.

sudo IATEMPDIR=/my/largefolder ./installDR.bin

sudo IATEMPDIR=/my/largefolder ./installDA.bin

sudo IATEMPDIR=/my/largefolder ./install.bin

sudo IATEMPDIR=/my/largefolder ./CAPerfCenterSetup.bin
