Installing the Management Console

You can install Management Console for Unix on Windows, Unix, or Mac computers. Each hosting platform prompts for similar information.

  • ManagementConsoleForUnix_unix_2_5_0.sh - for Unix
  • ManagementConsoleForUnix_windows_2_5_0.exe - for Windows
  • ManagementConsoleForUnix_windows-64_2_5_0.exe - for Windows

Installing and Uninstalling the Console on Windows

To install the mangement console from the distribution media on Windows

  1. Mount the distribution media.

    Autorun starts automatically.

    Note: To start the Autorun installation wizard, you can also navigate to the root of the distribution media and double-click autorun Application file.

  2. From the One Identity Privileged Access Suite for Unix Autorun Home page, click the Setup tab.

  3. From the Setup tab, click One IdentityManagement Console for Unix.

    The install wizard guides you through these setup dialogs:

    • Management Console for Unix License Agreement dialog
    • Configure TCP/IP Port dialog
    • Installing dialog;

      Please wait while it:

      • extracts and installs Management Console for Unix on your computer
      • configures the database and service on the server
      • copies the Authentication Services client software packages for each platform
      • copies the Sudo Plugin software packages for each platform
      • copies the Privilege Manager for Unix Agent software packages for each platform
      • copies the Privilege Manager Policy Server packages for each platform
    • Completing the Management Console for Unix installation dialog
  4. On the Complete dialog, select the Launch the Management Console option and click Finish.

    The Windows Internet Explorer starts the One Identity Management Console for Unix setup wizard.

    To continue the installation and configuration process, go to Setup Management Console for Unix

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:

  • On Windows XP/2003 Server:

    %SystemDrive%:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix

  • On Windows 2008 Server/Vista/7:

    %SystemDrive%:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix

  1. 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.

  2. To preserve your application database, clear the Remove application database and application logs option.

  3. The default for the uninstaller is to remove everything.
  4. Click Uninstall.
  5. Once the uninstaller has removed the product from your computer, click Finish to close the uninstaller program.

Installing the Console From the Windows Command Line

Use this procedure to install the mangement console on the designated Windows computer from the command line.

Note: Installing Management Console for Unix2.5 from the command line is not currently supported on Windows 8.

To install the mangement console on a Windows platform

  1. Log in and open a command shell.
  2. From the root of the distribution media, navigate to console | server.
  3. Run the following command:
    # .\ManagementConsoleForUnix_windows_2_5_0.exe

    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.

    Note: Using no option starts the installer in a graphical user interface.

    In "console" mode, it asks you for the following information.

  4. Enter 1 to accept the user agreement.

  5. Enter the SSL Port number, or press Enter to accept the default of 9443.

  6. Enter the Non-SSL Port number or press Enter to accept the default of 9080.

    The install wizard extracts and copies the files, configures and starts the service, and so forth.

    Note: By default, the installation directory is located at:

    • On Windows 32-bit platforms:
      %SystemDrive%:\Program Files\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix
    • On Windows 64-bit platforms:
      %SystemDrive%:\Program Files (x86)\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix

    To continue the installation and configuration process, go to Setup Management Console for Unix.

Installing and Uninstalling the Console on Unix

Use this procedure to install the mangement console on the designated Unix computer from the command line with the installation script.

To install the mangement console on a Unix platform

  1. Log in and open a root shell.
  2. Mount the installation media and navigate to console | server.
  3. Run the following command from the Unix command line as root:
    # sh ManagementConsoleForUnix_unix_2_5_0.sh

    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.

    Note: Using no option starts the installer in a graphical user interface if you have an X server, making the installation experience similar to running it from the Windows autorun. (See Installing and Uninstalling the Console on Windows for details.)

    In "console" mode, it asks you for the following information.

  4. Enter 1 to accept the user agreement.
  5. Enter the SSL Port number, or press Enter to accept the default of 9443.
  6. Enter the Non-SSL Port number or press Enter to accept the default of 9080.

    The install wizard extracts and copies the files, configures and starts the service, and so forth.

    Note: On Unix, the install location is /opt/quest/mcu and you cannot specify an alternate path.

    To continue the installation and configuration process, go to Setup Management Console for Unix.

To uninstall Management Console for Unix from Unix

Note: The default for the uninstaller is to remove everything. Before you uninstall Management Console for Unix, if you plan to re-install Management Console for Unix and want to preserve your data, backup your application database. The application database contains information about the hosts, settings, users, groups, passwords, and so forth.

By default, the database directory is at: /var/opt/quest/mcu.

  1. Run the following command as root:

    To uninstall version 1.0, run

    /opt/quest/imu/uninstall

    To uninstall version 2.x, run

    /opt/quest/mcu/uninstall

    You can use one of the following options with the uninstall command:

    • -q option for "quiet" mode, which automatically accepts all the default settings, including removing the application database and logs.
    • -c option for "console" mode, which prompts you for information interactively.

    Note: Using no option starts the uninstaller in a graphical user interface.

  2. If in "console" mode, confirm whether you want to remove the application database and application logs or not.

    This option is useful if you plan to re-install Management Console for Unix and want to preserve your data. The default for the uninstaller is to remove everything.

The wizard uninstalls Management Console for Unix.
