Use the Executable .jar File to Run HPE IDOL Site Admin

Download and extract the files from the installer zip file. The zip file contains the siteadmin.jar executable .jar file, and an install directory.

Use the following command to run HPE Site Admin:

Java -Dhp.idolsiteadmin.home=[home directory] –Dserver.port=[port] –jar siteadmin.jar –uriEncoding utf-8


On Linux, HPE recommends that you use /opt/siteadmin as the install directory, and /opt/siteadmin/home as the home directory. On Windows, the home directory might be C:\HPE\SiteAdmin. In either case, ensure that the user running HPE IDOL Site Admin has read and write permissions for the home directory.

To continue the installation, follow the steps in Configure HPE IDOL Site Admin.
