With the Standard Installation, everything you need is precompiled and ready to install. This is the fastest and easiest means of installing SysInfo™. We strongly recommend nearly all customers install our binary distributions as this will save you significant time. There is very little difference in the installed product between installing from a binary distribution and our source distribution.
Choose the product distribution file you wish to download. The available product distributions for download are as follows:
|Product Distribution Name||Product Distribution File||Contents|
|Full runtime environment (Recommended for end users)||mcsysinfo-5.1.2-GA-os-arch.sh||Standard end-user runtime with CLI, GUI, agent. You likely just want this distribution file.|
|Runtime environment without any user interface||mcsysinfo-5.1.2-GA-os-arch-noui.sh||This distribution does not include the CLI or GUI, but does include everything you need to output mcsysinforeport(5) data. This product file is intended for our OEM customers.|
|Software Developers Kit||mcsysinfo-5.1.2-GA-os-arch-sdk.sh||This distribution contains the C Software Developers Kit for this release. It should be installed on top of the Standard end-user runtime product as it only contains the SDK and not the required base environment.|
Follow the instructions to Download the product distribution file you choose in the previous step.
You should have a file named mcsysinfo-5.1.2-GA-os-arch.sh e.g. For a SunOS/Solaris SPARC distribution, the file would be called mcsysinfo-5.1.2-GA-sunos-sparc.sh
Become user root by running su or logging in as root.
