Management Console for Unix 2.5.2 requires Java 8 (that is, Java SE 8, Java Platform Standard Edition 8). Before you run the Management Console for Unix installer, ensure that a suitable implementation of Java 8 is installed.
32-bit or 64-bit
- On Unix/Linux, the installer supports both 32-bit and 64-bit Java 8.
- On 32-bit Windows, use 32-bit Java 8 and the 32-bit installer.
- On 64-bit Windows, use 64-bit Java 8 and the 64-bit installer or (if desired) use 32-bit Java 8 for the 32-bit installer.
The 32-bit implementation should only be used for small installations of Management Console for Unix; for most installations, the 64-bit implementation of Java 8 and Management Console for Unix is preferable.
JRE, JDK, or Server JRE
Any configuration of Java 8 — the JRE, the JDK, or the Server JRE — can be used. The Server JRE is ideal but is only available for some platforms. The JRE is sufficient. The JDK, a superset of the JRE that adds tools for Java development, is also more than sufficient.
Obtaining Java 8
On Unix/Linux, your operating system may provide Java 8, either already installed or available as packages that can be downloaded and installed.
Providers of Java 8 implementations for Windows and for Unix/Linux include:
Java 8 version/update numbers
JDK 8 may also be referred to as JDK 1.8 or JDK 1.8.0. Updates (patch releases) are numbered, and an update such as 181 may be referred to as either JDK 8u181 or JDK 1.8.0_181. The same is true for the JRE. IBM has its own release process and its own numbering scheme.
To stay abreast of Java 8 security fixes, whenever possible the most recent Java 8 update should be used.

To uninstall the mangement console
BEST Practice: Before you uninstall Management Console for Unix, backup your application database to ensure that you do not lose data. The application database contains information about the hosts, settings, users, groups, passwords, and so forth.
By default, the application data directory is:
%SystemDrive%:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix
From the Start menu, navigate to Programs | One Identity Software | Management Console for Unix | Uninstall Management Console for Unix.
Note: Because One Identity changed the product name for version 2.0, the path to the uninstaller in version 1.0 is Programs | One Identity Software | Identity Manager for Unix | Quest Identity Manager for Unix Uninstaller.
To preserve your application database, clear the Remove application database and application logs option.
- The default for the uninstaller is to remove everything.
- Click Uninstall.
- Once the uninstaller has removed the product from your computer, click Finish to close the uninstaller program.
Use this procedure to install the mangement console on the designated Windows computer from the command line.
To install the mangement console on a Windows platform
- Log in and open a command shell.
- From the root of the distribution media, navigate to console | server.
- For a 64-bit installation, run the following command:
You can use one of the following options:
- -q option for "quiet" mode, which automatically accepts all the default settings.
- -c option for "console" mode, which prompts you for information interactively.
