Reference and support documentation when downloading and installing SmartCloud Control Desk:

The following planning guide may need to be consulted when downloading and installing SmartCloud Control Desk:

o       Planning for Deployment Guide: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v50r1/topic/com.ibm.tusc.doc/pdfs/pdf_tusc_plan.pdf

and depending on your installation, one of the following installation guides:

o       Installation Guide (IBM WebSphere): http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v50r1/topic/com.ibm.tusc.doc/pdfs/pdf_tusc_install_was.pdf

o       Installation Guide (Oracle WebLogic Server): http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v50r1/topic/com.ibm.tusc.doc/pdfs/pdf_tusc_install_wl.pdf

Note for AIX and HP-UX users:

Both the native AIX and HP-UX tar commands and the GNU version of the tar command are required by the middleware installation program. Because the native utility does not support long file names, ensure that GNU tar version 1.14 or higher is installed, so that the installation files can be extracted. To download GNU tar for AIX, go to:
http://www.ibm.com/systems/p/os/aix/linux/toolbox/download.html.

In the box on the right, select "Alphabetically," then scroll down the list to the entry for tar with this description: "A GNU file archiving program." After you install GNU tar, verify that the system path variable contains both native AIX / HP-UX tar and GNU tar directories, with the GNU tar location being defined before the native AIX / HP-UX tar location. If you have set a symbolic link to overwrite the native AIX or HP-UX tar command with the GNU tar command, you will encounter an error.

Follow these steps to download and install SmartCloud Control Desk:

  1. Before you install SmartCloud Control Desk, you can find information on the Web information center. There are three Web information centers, one for each product edition:

IBM SmartCloud Control Desk: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v50r1/index.jsp

IBM SmartCloud Control Desk - Entry Edition: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v58r1/index.jsp

IBM SmartCloud Control Desk - Service Provider Edition: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v51r1/index.jsp

  1. Ensure that your target machines meet the hardware and software prerequisites listed in the Product wiki:

https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wikis/display/tivoli/SmartCloud+Control+Desk+-+Version+7.5+System+Requirements

  1. The Release notes contain information that you should review before beginning the installation process:

http://www.ibm.com/support/search.wss?tc=SSWT9A&atrn=IBMTask&atrv=IN&sort=desc&atrn1=SWVersion&atrv1=7.5

  1. Based on your target machines and the features you will install, follow the instructions in one or more of the following sections.

These next sections describe the process for downloading and installing the product as an enterprise solution. If you are using the VM IMage deployment option, read Installing the VM Image.

Using the Launchpad

You can use the SmartCloud Control Desk Launchpad to start each installation process. The Launchpad images include the middleware installer and the SmartCloud Control Desk installer. You should download the Launchpad first.

Download the Launchpad image to your administrative workstation and to each server where you will use it to install a middleware product. There are separate launchpad images for each product edition, and for Windows and other platforms. To use the Launchpad, download and extract the image for your product edition and platform:
