Before You Install

Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements before you install Automate Schedule on your UNIX, Linux, or PowerLinux server.

Note: Skybot Scheduler has been renamed to Automate Schedule and is now part of the Automate suite of products. The existing Skybot Scheduler features and functionality are the same; only the product name has changed.

Notes:

  • Install the Automate Schedule server software as root.
    • The server software is installed into /opt/automate-schedule/server.
    • The Automate Schedule agent software is installed into /opt/automate-schedule/agent.
  • The installer uses the default values for all ports (assuming none are already in use, in which case it decrements the port's value until an open port is found). You can manually override these port assignments.
  • The server installer also installs a Automate Schedule agent on your system and automatically configures it to connect to the Automate Schedule server software.

Installing Automate Schedule

Complete the following steps to install the Automate Schedule server software:

  1. Log in as root.
  2. Download the Automate Schedule for AIX and Linux file (setupAutomateSchedule.tar) to a temporary directory on your system (/tmp).
  3. Use the following command to extract the contents of the file:

    tar -xf setupAutomateSchedule.tar

    Extracted files will be put in a new directory named automatescheduleinstall (/tmp/automatescheduleinstall).
  4. Use the following commands to start the server installer:

    cd automatescheduleinstall
    ./serverInstall
  5. The installer displays the actions it is going to perform, and asks for your permission to proceed.
  6. When the installer has completed, it asks if you want to start the Automate Schedule server.

After You Are Done

After installation is complete, point a web browser to the following URL:

http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8008/

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your server.
