Installing PPM on UNIX Systems

Note: You as the system user should have grants to the following sys packages before installing 9.50:

grant all on SYS.DBMS_CRYPTO to system with grant option;

grant all on SYS.USER_OBJECTS to system with grant option;

  1. Download the bundle and copy it to a directory, referred to as <PPM_Extract> in the following steps.

  2. To extract the files into the <PPM_Extract> directory from the download bundle, at a command prompt, type one of the following:

    unzip ppm-950-install.zip

    Alternatively,

    jar xvf ppm-950-install.zip

    All the files and scripts required for PPM installation are extracted (to <PPM_Extract>). The installer prompts for the software install directory. You can specify any directory for installation.

    The <PPM_Extract>/ppm950 directory that results from the extraction contains the install.sh shell script.

  3. To start the installation, run the installation script (as the system account for PPM) and specify the installation mode.

    Example

    sh ./install.sh -i[swing|console]

    where

    -i swing

    Swing mode is an interactive, GUI-based installation mode that requires an X Window session. A wizard guides you through the installation steps.

    -i console

    Console mode is the interactive command-line mode. The installation script runs within the terminal session and you respond to the prompts.

    -i swing

    Swing mode is an interactive, GUI-based installation mode that requires an X Window session. A wizard guides you through the installation steps.

    -i console

    Console mode is the interactive command-line mode. The installation script runs within the terminal session and you respond to the prompts.

    To optimize system performance, the installation script rebuilds statistics for the Oracle optimizer. For the installation procedure to perform this step, you must have the following grants to the schema in place:

    • grant select on v_$PARAMETER to <PPM_Schema>

    • grant execute on DBMS_STATS to <PPM_Schema>

    • grant select on v_$MYSTAT to <PPM_Schema>

    • grant select on v_$PROCESS to <PPM_Schema>

    • grant select on v_$SESSION to <PPM_Schema>

    The GrantSysPrivs.sql script (located in the <PPM_Extract>/ppm950/sys directory) performs these required grants.

  4. If you did not run the GrantSysPrivs.sql script before you started installation, do it now (with SYS DBA access).

Note: PPM comes with an Administrator user with the default username/password combination admin/admin. We recommend that you change the password for the administrator user after you install PPM.
