Issue/Introduction

The installer shows the "repair" or "upgrade" instead of the "install" mode when you want to do a fresh install of a Provisioning component (e.g. Provisioning Directory, Provisioning Server or Connector Server).

 

Environment

Release: CAIDMB99000-12.6.7-Identity Manager-B to B
Component:

Resolution

In this situation, please first check whether you have already installed the component on the machine.

If yes, this is normal.

If the Provisioning component has already been uninstalled, but the installer still shows the "repair" or "upgrade" mode, the vpd.properties file needs to be modified.

The vpd.properties file stores the program information, such as the location, version and component. 

To modify the vpd.properties, please follow the steps below

  1. Locate and backup the C:\Windows\vpd.properties (Windows) or /root/vpd.properties (Unix).
  2. Open the file in a text editor.
  3. Find and delete all the entries related to the Provisioning component that you want to install.
  4. Save and close the file.

 Run the Provisioning component installer again, the installer will show you the "install" mode this time.
