Install Foglight 5.9.2

If you are upgrading from SharePlex Manager version 2.2 to version 3.0, it is strongly recommended that you back up your Foglight 5.5.8 server and database before attempting to upgrade it to version 5.9.2. If upgrading from Foglight 5.5.8.3, you must upgrade to Foglight 5.7.5.8 before you can upgrade to Foglight 5.9.2. For upgrade instructions, see “Upgrade Foglight 5.5.8.3 to Foglight 5.7.5.8” on page 3.

1
Start the installation process by initiating the appropriate executable file located in the FoglightManagementServer-5.9.2 directory of the SharePlex Manager install media.
2
Follow the installation instructions provided in the appropriate Foglight Installation Guide located in the FoglightServer-5_9_2\Documentation directory of the SharePlex Manager install media.
At the end of a standard install, the Foglight server is started automatically. You must shut down the server before installing SharePlex Manager, either by selecting the Stop Foglight option on the Start Menu (for Windows) or by executing the shutdown script FmsShutdown.sh (for Linux) located in the bin directory,

Install SharePlex Manager 3.0

You can run the SharePlex Manager installer in either GUI mode or in console mode (Linux only). The instructions in this guide are based on a GUI installation. However, since the sequence of steps are the same, you can still perform a console installation by following these instructions. The only differences are operational. For example, in GUI mode you click Cancel, Previous, and Next, while in console mode you type ‘quit’ and ‘back’ and press <Enter>.

Starting SharePlex Web Services

SharePlex Web Services must be running to monitor your SharePlex instances. On Windows, SharePlex Web Services starts automatically at reboot. On Linux, you can start SharePlex Web Services manually, or you can configure it to start at reboot.

As a Windows NT service, SharePlex Web Services is configured to start automatically when the machine reboots. However, if it is necessary to start SharePlex Web Services manually (for example, due to a port conflict), you can start it manually in two ways:

By going to the Start menu and selecting All Programs>Quest Software>SharePlex Manager>Start SharePlex Web Services.
Note
To stop SharePlex Web Services, select the Stop SharePlex Web Services option.
By executing the command web-services start from the web-services.bat file located in the <install_dir>\Webservices\bin directory.

After the installation is complete, you can start SharePlex Web Services manually, or you can configure it to start at reboot.

Note
To stop SharePlex Web Services for Linux, execute
sh <install_dir>/Webservices/bin/web-services.sh stop
. For Windows, close the window it is running in.
a
Create the file /etc/init.d/spo-web-services with the following content (assumes that Java is installed in the default <install_dir>/jre directory and the SharePlex Web Services is installed in <install_dir>/Webservices/bin):
