The DBAmon system must run under UX userid dbamon. This userid must be running the "ksh" Korn Shell. DBAmon will not work if you are running a different shell. If this userid does not exist, create it. You can choose The UX group Id for dbamon yourself. We will refer to that group ID as GID. In the .profile for user dbamon, add /opt/dbamon/bin to the PATH setting. Set /opt/dbamon as the HOME directory for the dbamon user.
To send EMail (which DBAmon makes extensive use of), DBAmon uses a routine which invokes sendmail. The only requirement is that sendmail is in the default PATH that is used by all users. Run whence sendmail to ensure that it is in the default PATH. If it is not, add it to the PATH setting for user dbamon.
Perl version 5 or higher must be installed on the DBAmon Master Server and there must be a link (or executable) called: /usr/local/bin/perl which invokes Perl 5 (the higher Perl version the better). DBAmon will not work without this. This is also required on any UX server that DBAmon monitors.
Login as UX user dbamon.
Run: mkdir /opt/dbamon and make sure that it is writable by user dbamon. It is understood that you may have to do this as another userid, but just make sure to chown /opt/dbamon to user dbamon.
Copy the downloaded gzip'd tar ball that you downloaded to /opt/dbamon/dbamon.tgz
Run: cd /opt/dbamon.
Run: gunzip dbamon.tgz to unzip the tar ball.
Run: tar -xvf dbamon.tar to explode the tar ball.
Run: /opt/dbamon/bin/dbamon_install and answer all prompts. This script will do many tasks:
