Pre-installation tasks

A series of pre-installation tasks must be completed before you can deploy the HCL Docs infrastructure. These tasks include installing the system prerequisites and configuring both Windows™ and Linux™ operating systems.

Before proceeding to the pre-installation tasks, make sure that you have completed these planning activities:
  • Determined the required topology and contacted IBM® Techline or your Sales representative for assistance in sizing the system requirements based on the expected number of users.
  • Installed the systems or virtual machines with the required operating systems and the latest fix packs applied.
  • Provided a network diagram depicting the desired topology with host names, IP addresses, and administrator credentials, enabling creation of the deployment response files.
  • Established user IDs and passwords for all systems and middleware.

Completing the following pre-installation tasks now helps to ensure success and reduces the time needed to complete the deployment of the actual HCL Docs components.
