Installing from remote source machines
To install products, components, packages, or patches from a software server:
Start the Software Manager.
From the Software menu, select Install New.
Enter the host name and the ``swadmin'' password for
the remote machine.
To install from a CD, tape, or floppy disk present
on the remote machine, identify the media device.
To install from media images,
select Media Images as the media device and
identify the image directory.
To install software that is
loaded on the remote machine,
select Loaded Software as the media device.
Select the software items that you want from the list of
available software, and click on Install.
The list of available software may contain products,
components, packages, and patches.
If you install a component and its patch at the same time,
the Software Manager may try to install the patch
before the component, causing the patch installation to fail.
To license the product during installation, enter the license number
and code from the Certificate of License and Authenticity when prompted.
If you defer licensing at this time, see
for instructions on licensing the product.
