To install, configure, and test your Cadence® products and licensing for a new release,

1.

Do one of the following:
*

If you received an Installation Control file for this release via e-mail, save it to a known location.
*

If you received an Installation Control file on CD, mount the CD and access the file. Then save the file to a known location.

Note: If you did not recieve an installation control file, use the Cadence Catalog option to install the products.

2.

Verify that you have read permission for the Installation Control file.
3.

Save the ASCII license file that you received as an email attachment in a known location and ensure that you have read permission.

Note: You can use either the Installation Control File or the ASCII format license file for providing the license information.

4.

Identify the CD to use for installation.

If you have received only a set of Baseline CDs, use the Baseline CD#1 first. The disk should be labeled Disk # of n for platform.

If you have received both a set of Base, Update, and Hot Fix CDs (and the Installation Control e-mail file), use the Update and Hot Fix CD#1 first. After installing the Update or Hot Fix CDs, SoftLoad may ask you to then mount the baseline CD to complete the installation in a new hierarchy.

Note: For Windows users, the Update/Hot Fix CDs contains the full release. The baseline CD will not be required to complete the installation in a new hierarchy.

Note: The type of CD you mount first (Baseline, Update, and Hot Fix CD#1) determines the resulting installation type. That is, if you start with Baseline CD#1, you will install the baseline version of the selected products. If you start with an Hot Fix CD#1, you will install the Hot Fix version of the products as they existed on the date that the Hot Fix CD set was created.

5.

Mount the CD.

Note: The installation starts automatically when you insert the CD on a Microsoft Windows system. If you are using a dongle, attach it to your computer before inserting the CD.

1.

Log in as root.

Note: You do not normally need root permission to mount a CD-ROM on Solaris.

2.

If it does not already exist, create the CD-ROM directory by typing

mkdir /cd_dir

3.

Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive.
4.

Mount the CD-ROM drive on the CD-ROM directory, using the appropriate command:




Solaris


/etc/mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/device /cd_dir

Note: Normally, the Solaris OS automounts the CD-ROM. In case the automount fails, see Solaris does not mount the CD-ROM automatically for troubleshooting tips.




HP-UX


/etc/mount -F cdfs -o ro /dev/dsk/device /cd_dir

Note: Typically, the device name to represent CD-ROM in HP-UX is c0t0d0.




AIX


/etc/mount -v cdrfs -o ro /dev/device /cd_dir

Note: Typically, the device name to represent CD-ROM in HP-UX is cd0.




Linux


/bin/mount -o ro /dev/device /cd_dir

Note: Typically, the device name to represent CD-ROM in Linux is cdrom.

5.

Log out as root.
6.

Check the top level of your CD for README file.

If this file exists, it contains information that might be necessary for the installation of your product.

7.

Start the interactive setup utility, SETUP.SH.

On a UNIX system, type

cdrom_mount_point/SETUP.SH

For example, if cd_dir is the CD-ROM mount point, then the command to run SETUP.SH will be

/cd_dir/SETUP.SH

On a Microsoft Windows system, the installation should start automatically. If it does not, go to the top-level directory of the CD-ROM and run the setup.exe program.

8.

When SETUP.SH asks you to specify the path to your_install_dir, do one of the following:
*

Type the path to an empty existing directory.
*

Type a name for a directory (SETUP.SH will create the path for you).
9.

Answer the prompts, and proceed as directed.

The appropriate installation utility, SoftLoad or InstallShield, should start automatically. If it does not start, do one of the following:

*

On UNIX, type

./install/bin.platform/softload

*

On Windows, double-click on setup.exe at the top level of the CD-ROM.
10.

Do one of the following:
*

Load the products and licensing using InstallShield.

InstallShield is a GUI-based installation wizard. Each screen includes instructions.

InstallShield allows you to install the license manager, install products, and update your license file.

The installation is customized for each product family: see the README file at the top level of your CD-ROM for appropriate information.

*

Load the products using SoftLoad.

Note: On Linux, Softload is available only in ASCII mode.

1.

On the SoftLoad Main Menu, click Load Products, then click OK.
2.

On the Mount CD-ROM window, specify the CD-ROM mount point for the CD#1 that you are using for installation, and then proceed as directed. Click on Help for additional details.
3.

On the SoftLoad Installation Information window, specify where the installation information is.
*

If you received your license information via e-mail, click E-mail File.

You can either type the filename or click Browser to find the file in which you saved the e-mail file.

*

If you did not receive an Installation Control file, click Cadence Catalog to load products or click Documentation Catalog to access the documentation. For details regarding documentation installation, see "Installing Documentation Only".

You will need to configure the license file before you can start using it. For more information, see the Cadence License Manager. This document is available on SourceLink in the Installation Library and with the product manuals. Or, if you have a previously licensed Cadence hierarchy available, you can read this document using the Cadence online documentation system, CDSDoc.

4.

If your installation consists of more than one CD-ROM, either because the release is on two volumes or because you began the installation with a Update and Hot Fix CDs CD-ROM, SoftLoad installs the selected products from the first disk and then prompts you to dismount that CD-ROM and continue the installation using the next disk. For Update and Hot Fix installations, you finish by installing the non-updated products from the baseline CD-ROM.

Note: If you ran SETUP.SH using the File Manager, the disk may now be busy and not allow you to eject it. If this happens, close the Run terminal window. You may also need to exit from File Manager. Do not exit from SoftLoad. If you exit from SoftLoad and then restart the installation using the baseline CD-ROM, the baseline will overwrite the Update and Hot Fix CDs products.

If you chose the E-Mail File Option

1.

From the SoftLoad Main Menu, click Configure Installed Products, then click System Environment.
2.

Configure licensing before configuring any product.
3.

Choose only the SoftShare Licensing Server (host_id) to configure.
4.

Respond to the prompts.
5.

If you are setting up fault-tolerant licensing, do not start the license daemons when prompted.

For more information, see the Cadence License Manager Guide. This document is available on SourceLink in the Installation Library and with the product manuals. Or, if you have a previously licensed Cadence hierarchy available, you can read this document using the Cadence online documentation system, CDSDoc.

6.

On the SoftLoad Main Menu window, click Configure Installed Products, then click OK.
7.

Answer the prompts, and proceed as directed.
8.

Your product may have additional configuration tasks described in its product-specific documentation. Now that your licenses are installed, you can read this information locally using CDSDoc. You can also look up the same information on SourceLink at any time before, during, or after the installation.
9.

On the SoftLoad Main Menu, click Test Installed Products, then click OK.
10.

Answer the prompts, and proceed as directed.
11.

You can see which products are installed on your system at any time by looking in <your_install_dir>/install/pdts. Files with the .ok extension are successfully installed.

If you chose the Cadence Catalog Option:

1.

Copy the license file in <your_install_dir>/share/license location.
2.

Run the <your_install_dir>/tools/bin/configure or your_install_dir>/tools/bin/lic_config utility to configure licensing. For more information, see Cadence License Manager . This document is available on SourceLink in the Installation Library and with the product manuals. Or, if you have a previously licensed Cadence hierarchy available, you can read this document using the Cadence online documentation system, CDSDoc.




Creating the Tools Link

Cadence tools require a tools directory to be present in the installation hierarchy. This tools directory should be a symbolic link to the tools.<platform> directory that is created at the time of installation. Typically, this link is created automatically when you run product configuration scripts such as licensing configuration.

If this link does not exist, do the following:

1.

Change to the installation directory by specifying the following command at the command prompt:

cd <install_dir>

2.

Create the tools link by specifying the following command at the command prompt:

ln -s tools.<platform> tools
