Installing Comms: Lowering the Barriers, Day 2

The subtitle of Installing Comms Suite, Day 2, ought to read "I'm my own worst enemy." After finally getting past the point of installing Application Server, Directory Server, Access Manager, and Web Server, as detailed here, I finally got on to the long-awaited installation of Comms products themselves, and then being able to run the comm_dssetup.pl script, which would apply the necessary schema for Comms to the Directory Server. Ah, at last, smooth sailing ahead.

Except that the script would not recognize my Access Manager installation. When choosing my Schema type as Schema 2, (which the Single Host Deployment Example uses), the script responded:

Please enter the Schema Type (1, 1.5, 2) [1]: 2 Access Manager has not been configured for this new user/group suffix You can opt to continue, but you will not be able to use features that depend on Access Manager
Hmmm, odd I thought. No problem, I'll just uninstall Access Manager and reinstall, just to be sure. One uninstall/reinstall, same result. Twice, same result. Okay, third times the charm. Same error message.

Then I actually stopped to read a little burp of an error in my term window:

has_naming_context_ds6 get-suffix-prop result: execv(/opt/bits/jre1.5.0_15/java/bin/java): No such file or directory
A little poking around, and sure enough, I was setting a bogus JAVA_HOME variable and comm_dssetup.pl was complaining! Naturally, when I fixed this I was on my merry way.

Next step: Running all those Comms configurators. Where's the easy button when you need it?

Hi,
I'm on the beta test program of comm 6.... It is beeing a hard job because I'm testing it on a customer and trying to migrate datas from a old Sun one installation (Messaging 5.2, directory 4.16).
All the documentation on the wikis are really helpful, any way I miss that button as wel hehehehehehehe.
I have the doc Installing on a single Host translated to spanish if anyone is interested, with a bit more text about my kind of migration.
Regards,
JJ

Thanks for the comment Hirva. Suggestion: Why not post a writeup of your Comms 6 installation on the Comms Wiki? Sounds like you have a lot of real world info that would be valuable to share with the community.

Be happy to help out if you'd like.
