To install IDOL on UNIX

    where:

    VersionNumber is the product version
    Platform is the name of your UNIX platform
    NOTE:

    Ensure that you have execute permission for the installer file.

    The console installer starts and displays the Welcome screen.

  2. Read the information and then press the Enter key.

    The license information is displayed.

  3. Read the license information, pressing Enter to continue through the text. After you finish reading the text, type Y to accept the license terms.

  4. Type the path to the location where you want to install the servers, or press Enter to accept the default path.

    The Installation Mode screen is displayed.

  5. Press 2 to select the Custom installation mode.

    The License Server screen opens. Choose whether you have an existing License Server.

  6. If you want to install a new License Server, provide information for the ports that the License Server uses.

    1. Type the value for the ACI Port and press Enter (or press Enter to accept the default value).

      ACI Port The port that client machines use to send ACI actions to the License Server.
    2. Type the value for the Service Port and press Enter (or press Enter to accept the default value).

      Service Port

      The port by which you send service actions to the License Server. This port must not be used by any other service.

    3. Type the location of your IDOL license key file (licensekey.dat), which you obtained when you purchased IDOL. Press Enter.
  7. The Component Selection screen is displayed. Press Enter. When prompted, type Y for the components that you want to install. Specify the port information for each component, and then press Enter. Alternatively, leave the fields blank and press Enter to accept the default port settings.

    For each component, you can optionally provide port information to specify the ports that the component must use. The port that you choose must not be used by any other service. The installer allows you to set the following port types:

    ACI Port The port that client machines use to send ACI actions to the component.
    Index Port The port that client machines use to send index actions to the component. This port is available only for the Content, Agentstore, and DIH components.
    Service Port The port that client machines use to send service requests to the component. This port is also the port that the component uses for License Server communication.
    Binary Data Port The port to use for streaming audio data. This port is available only for the IDOL Speech Server component.

    The following table lists the components and subcomponents that you can install, and the default port that the installer uses if you do not provide an alternative value. You must change the port information if the default port value is already in use.
