Detailed Installation

Use the following steps to install EMPro on Linux systems. Please note, if you installed an Early Access version of EMPro, you should uninstall it before installing this release.

To install EMPro on Linux systems:

  1. Log on to the system where you want to install EMPro. Ensure that you are using an account that has write permissions to the disk.
  2. Download and untar the EMPro installation image from the EMPro download page.
    For example to untar the file on Linux:
    tar xf empro200rday_linux_x86.tar
  3. Change directories to the directory containing the extracted tar files.
  4. Start the installation program using the following command:
    ./SETUP.SH

    Note

    If you are running Netscape, or another program that uses a significant amount of color resources, you should shut it down before starting the EMPro installation.

  5. At the Introduction window, click Next and read the License Agreement. This is a usage agreement and is not related to the licenses required to run the software.
  6. After reviewing the agreement in the License Agreement window, choose either:
    • I accept the terms of the License Agreement, click Next to continue with the setup.
      or
    • I do NOT accept the terms of the License Agreement, click Next to end the setup and exit the program.
  7. At the Choose Install Set window, select Complete
  8. At the Choose Install Folder window, enter the full path to the directory in which you would like to install EMPro. If you specify a directory that does not already exist, the installation program will create it for you. The default directory is /usr/local/EMPro2011.04.
    Click:
    • Next to install to the default destination.
      or
    • Choose to browse to a different destination directory, or manually enter the full path. To install EMPro to the specified folder, click Next.
  9. Following this, the Pre-Installation Summary will display the installation directory you have selected, along with the available disk space on the disk partition containing that directory. To keep the installation directory shown, click Install. If you want to change the installation directory, click Previous and repeat the preceding step.
  10. The Installing EMPro 2011.04 window appears, which is followed by the Install Complete window which appears when installation is complete. Note the License ID (hostid) and click Done to close the installation program.
  11. Use the FLEXnet security licenses from Agilent EEsof to create a license.lic file with the correct SERVER and VENDOR line configurations.
  12. Place the license.lic file in the licenses sub-directory of your EMPro installation directory and start FLEXnet to enable your licenses. For more information, refer to License Setup Wizard.
  13. Start EMPro. Do this by navigating into the directory that you have chosen to do the installation and move into bin/Linux-i686RHEL4 (for 32-bit systems) or bin/Linux-x86_64 (for 64-bit systems) and use the following command:
    ./startempro

Note

If you installed EMPro as root, and try to start as a regular user, you might see the message IOError: Errno 13 Permission denied: 'pyempro_stdout.txt'. While this is of no influence on the good functioning of EMPro, you can avoid this message by setting the bin/Linux-i686RHEL4 and bin/Linux-x86_64 executable for all:

cd /usr/local/EMPro201102/bin
chmod a+x Linux-i686RHEL4/
chmod a+x Linux-x86_64/

Installation Items

A complete installation installs the software and examples and requires approximately 3 GB of disk space. Please note, it does not install the FLEXnet files.

Configuring User Accounts

Configure the user accounts that will run EMPro as follows, where:

  • <path_to_license_file> is the path to your license file
  • <bin_directory> is the directory that contains startempro. If you've installed EMPro to the default location, this will either be /usr/local/EMPro2011-02/bin/Linux-i686RHEL4 or /usr/local/EMPro2011-02/bin/Linux-x86_64 depending on whether or not you want the 32-bit or 64-bit version to be found.

C Shell

Add the following at the end of $HOME/.cshrc:

setenv AGILEESOFD_LICENSE_FILE <path_to_license_file>
set path = ( . <bin_directory> $path )

Bourne or Korn Shell

Add the following at the end of $HOME/.profile:

AGILEESOFD_LICENSE_FILE=_<path_to_license_file>
PATH=.:<bin_directory>:$PATH
export AGILEESOFD_LICENSE_FILE PATH

Note

If you are running Common Desktop Environment (CDE) or HP VUE, your user account may be using $HOME/.dtprofile or $HOME/.vueprofile respectively to set up your user account instead of .cshrc or .profile. The .dtprofile and .vueprofile files contain a line, which can be activated by removing the comments tag for using .cshrc or .profile. Contact your system administrator, or refer to the CDE or VUE documentation for details.

Once the user accounts are configured, each user should log in and verify that the new environment variables are set. Type the env command and check to ensure that AGILEESOFD_LICENSE_FILE is set and that PATH contains a path to the correct EMPro bin subdirectory.

Setting the Display

If you plan to run EMPro from a remote computer and you want the display to appear on your local machine, you will need to set the DISPLAY environment variable:

setenv DISPLAY <my_hostname>: 0.0 (C-Shell)

DISPLAY = <my_hostname>: 0.0 (Korn Shell, Bourne Shell)
export DISPLAY

  • No labels
