Spectrum Technology Platform is designed so that modules can be added as you grow your system over time. This procedure describes how to add modules to an existing server.

If a module that you want to add to your Spectrum Technology Platform server is compatible with the installed version of the server, it will install the new module on the Spectrum Technology Platform module without any upgrade to the server itself. If a module is built on a newer version of the Spectrum Technology Platform, the installation program will step through an upgrade to the server. In either case, the installation program will recognize whether an upgrade is required.

The process for adding a module is similar to that of a new installation. In both cases you start the installation process by running the Spectrum Technology Platform installer. Note that Spectrum Technology Platform modules do not have their own installer. Instead, you use the Spectrum Technology Platform installer to add modules.

  1. If the Spectrum Technology Platform server is running, stop it by typing the following command in the Spectrum Technology Platform bin directory:

    ./server.stop

  2. Change the directory to the location of install.sh in the Spectrum Technology Platform installer.
  3. Run install.sh.
  4. Load any necessary databases for the new product.
    For more information, see Spectrum Databases.
  5. Start the server:
    1. Go to the Spectrum Technology Platform bin directory.
    2. Source the setup file. For example,

      . ./setup

    3. Type the following command:

      ./server.start

  6. Install the license key for the module.
    For more information, see Installing a License Key.
