3. Installing SysDM Client


For Windows:
Double click the SysDM client Installer XXXXXXXX_SysDM_EC_Rev_12.exe (For example,

complete installation process.
Figure 3.1 : Installation Wizard

After this, SysDM shows welcome message.

For Linux:
Kindly ensure executable rights are available to the client installer script XXXXXXXX_SysDM_EC_
Rev_12.sh (For example, 20130213_SysDM_EC_Rev_12.sh). If not, run the following command:
Chmod +x 20130213_SysDM_EC_Rev_12.sh

Double click the SysDM client Installer shell script or type bash < SysDM client Installer shell script>.

This opens the Installation type selection window.


Figure 3.4 : Installation type selection window

Independent Installation: By this, each client is installed with the entire executable and application
maintained data. Executable will not be shared with other clients and exclusively used by the client
where the installation is made.

Network Installation: By this, a common client is installed and the executable will be shared by
many clients in the network. Application maintained data will not be stored in this common client.
Application maintained data will be stored independently in each client system which is connected to
this common client. You cannot directly use this installation. You have to install a local client to use
the SysDM application (Refer SysDM_Local_Client_Installation_guide document for more details).

Select the type of installation as Independent Installation or Network Installation and click Next
button.

directory. If you want to change the installation directory to some other folder, click Browse button.
This opens OS File Browser dialog box. Browse and choose the directory where you want to install.
The selected directory will be displayed in Destination directory field. Alternatively if you know the
installation directory path, you can type the directory path in Destination directory field. If the
destination directory path is not available, SysDM will create the destination directory. After this

This opens Select Database dialog box.


Select database is not applicable for Linux OS. Only HSQL is
supported in Linux OS.
Figure 3.9 : Select Database

Select HSQL database, if you are not going to perform System Synthesis operations. It is
an embedded database and no additional installation required.

Select PostgreSQL 8.4 database, if you are going to perform System Synthesis operations
as System Synthesis does not support HSQL database. However, for SysDM operations it
is not mandatory. A separate installer will be launched to install PostgreSQL, if it is not
already installed.

For Independent installation, the database selection will create and use the database in the selected
tool. For Network Installation, this will restrict all the local clients to use the selected database. If you
have selected the HSQL option, it will create the database and configure it. In this case, Database
Settings will not be there in the Client Settings dialog box.

If you want to perform System Synthesis functions, you must select


PostgreSQL database.

3.2. Silent Installation


You can install SysDM independent client without user interaction. This is known as silent
installation. Database will be assumed as HSQL in this installation. You can use the following
command to install SysDM in silent mode:
<SysDM Installer> -q dir < empty directory path >
For example,
20130213_SysDM_EC_Rev_12.exe -q -dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\LMS
\Imagine_Lab_SysDM\Client_12"

Do not install SysDM in silent mode if you want to perform System


Synthesis functions.
