Installing Unica Platform

You must run the Unica installer to start the installation of Unica Platform. The Unica installer starts the Unica Platform installer during the installation process. Make sure that the Unica installer and the product installer are saved at the same location.

Each time that you run the Unica suite installer, you must first enter database connection information for the Unica Platform system tables. When the Unica Platform installer starts, you must enter the required information for Unica Platform.

After installing Unica Platform, you can create an EAR file for your product, and you can install the reports package for your product. Creating the EAR file and installing the reports package are not mandatory actions.

Important: Before you install Unica Platform, make sure that the available temporary space on the computer where you install Unica Platform is more than three times the size of the Unica Platform installer.
