If you cannot use a product’s Installation Wizard, use these procedures to install products from a streamfile (STMF) or CD using the native user interface. These steps are valid for new installs or upgrades. Use these steps when directed from the appropriate checklist.

Starting the install process: Use Step 1 though Step 8 for all new installs and any upgrade (Version, Update, or SP). You only need to perform these steps once per install per system. Do the following:

  1. Sign on to the system using the QSECOFR user profile or a user profile that has security officer classification and all special authorities. The end of the installation process automatically generates a job log. By signing on just before starting the installation, you limit the job log to only the installation process.

  2. Load the installation media. Do one of the following:

    • If installing from streamfile (STMF), skip to Step 4.

    • If installing from CD, continue with Step 3.

  3. Load the CD into the system’s optical device. Using the name of the device from which you are installing for device-name, type the command LODRUN DEV(device-name) and press Enter to install it on your system. Then skip to Step 8.

  4. Download the STMF for the software you will be installing.

  5. Do one of the following to install from the STMF using the INSPRD command:

  6. The Install Precisely Product display appears. At the Stream file prompt, specify the name of the STMF you downloaded in Step 4.

  7. At the Installation library prompt, do one of the following:

    • Accept the default value, *SELECT, and press Enter. (Most users will need this choice.) Then continue with Step 8.

    • Specify a library name and press Enter. No additional steps are required. When processing ends, a message is returned indicating success or failure. For more information about this prompt and when other values are allowed, see INSPRD restrictions for specifying the installation library (INSTLIB).

    Installing the product: Use Step 8 through Step 14 to install a product on a system.

  8. The Precisely Common Install display appears with a list of products displayed. Do one of the following:

    • To install a new installation of a product, type 1 (Install/upgrade) next to the *NEW line for the product and press Enter.

    • To upgrade an existing product, type 1 (Install/upgrade) next to the existing product installation you want and press Enter.

    Note: When upgrading, only one product within an installation library should be selected for the upgrade. Selecting that product upgrades all products in the installation library.
    • To install or upgrade only License Manager, type 1 (Install/upgrade) next to License Manager and press Enter.

    Note: You only need to select License Manager when it is the only software you want to install or upgrade. When products are installed or upgraded, License Manager is also installed or upgraded as needed. You do not have to enter a license key when installing only License Manager.
  9. If the Precisely License Agreement appears, it is recommended that you read through all pages. Press F16 to accept the agreement.

    Note: If you decline the agreement (F12), a cancellation message is displayed and you are returned to the Precisely Common Install display.
  10. If the License Key Failure display appears, follow the procedures in Obtaining license keys during install from the native user interface to get a License Key Package (LKP).


    • If the LKP contains valid license keys for the product you are installing, the install process continues. If the license keys are not valid, the install process is canceled.

    • If you do not have valid license keys for the product version being installed and are performing a new install, the New Install without License Keys display appears. Follow the options provided. Although you can obtain license keys before continuing the install or afterwards, a valid license key is required before attempting to use any product in the library.

  11. The Install Precisely Product (INSLKVPRD) display appears. Do the following:
    1. Confirm the value of the Product prompt.
      Note: If you selected a new or existing product in Step 8 but the value *LICMGR appears, License Manager will be installed or upgraded first because either the installation process determined it was required or you also selected License Manager. Verify that the values of the prompts on this display are appropriate for License Manager. Pressing Enter will start the install. At the appropriate time, this display will appear again and then you can specify values for the product.
    2. At the Installation library prompt, verify that the value is set correctly. For more information, see Default installation library names.
    3. At the Keep current configuration data prompt, accept the default value *YES. Otherwise, specify the value you want.

    4. The value *CRTDFT appears in the Auxiliary storage pool ID prompt. This value uses the command default from the system command Create Library (CRTLIB) to specify the auxiliary storage pool (ASP) from which the system allocates storage for the library. If you need to use a different user ASP, specify the value you want.

      Note: License Manager must be installed in ASP1.
    5. To start the installation process, press Enter.

  12. The system checks to see if there are locks on any objects. If locks are found, you will see message LVE1005 “Product installation is in use.” To determine which objects have locks, refer to message LVE1019 in the job log.

  13. Depending on your choice for Step 8, you may see one of the following additional displays.
    • If you selected to install multiple products, the Precisely License Agreement for the next product is displayed. Return to Step 9.
    • If you selected a product but License Manager was installed as a prerequisite and the product license keys are not present, you will see the License Key Failure display. Return to Step 10 to obtain the keys and continue with the install.
    • If you selected a product but License Manager was installed as a prerequisite and the product license keys are present, you will see the Install Precisely Product (INSLKVPRD) display. Return to Step 11 to specify the information for the product.
  14. When all of the selected products have been installed, the Precisely Common Install display appears and completion message LMC0002 appears at the bottom of the display. For the installed or upgraded installation library, you will see one line on the display for each installed product with valid license keys. If valid license keys are not present, you will see only one line for the product until valid license keys are installed.
