Deploy Installer script

A fresh install is deployed using the IFS Cloud Installer. You start the IFS Cloud Installer from within your build_home. Note that the IFS Cloud Installer by default installs all parts of the build_home (prepare database, deploy db objects and middle-tier). Optionally the parts can be split into separate install steps if required by feeding the installer with appropriate actions Installer Actions.
More details on how to deploy using the IFS Cloud Installer can be found here Deploying IFS Cloud

Follow these steps:

  • Make sure all the installer configuration parameters are available.

NOTE: All the parameters parameters needed for the final solution should be set in the fresh install. see Installation parameters and ifscloud-values yaml example

  • Start the installer.
    This is done by running the installer script with all configuration settings passed to it - the installer is located here <build_home>\ifsinstaller\installer.cmd (or <build_home>/ifsinstaller/ if on Linux)
Example1 - run from within a Remote deployment folder structure:   
CMD> cd <topfolder>\deliveries\build_home\ifsinstaller   
CMD> .\installer.cmd

Note: that the installer will find ifscloud-values.yaml and the solutionset.yaml if named and placed correctly in the remote folder structure. ..\..\..\config\ifscloud-values.yaml and .\solutionset.yaml relativ from the installer. logFileLocation will be set to ..\..\..\logs\ifscloudinstaller.

Example2 - run in Linux with specific paths to values files:   
$ cd <build_home>/ifsinstaller   
$ ./ --values /myexample/config/ifscloud-values.yaml --values <build_home>/ifsinstaller/solutionset.yaml

Don't forget to add the dbInstaller.sysPassword parameter in a fresh install.
