Network Computer Division 2
Notes
The topic of this presentation is installing Network Station Manager Version2 Release 1
(V2R1) on Microsoft Windows NT.
The objective is to present only a very brief overview of the install process in order to
mainly highlight the differences with the previous version for those who are very familiar
with the V1R3 install process.
We briefly touch the prerequisites, the selectable components during install, the uninstall
and reinstall, the coexistence with the previous release and a few pieces of information on
the time server.
Please reference the product publication for a detailed guide to installation which
describes all the required steps.

Notes
The prerequisites for installing on a Windows NT Server 4.0 platform are the same as the
previous version except that both Windows NT and the Terminal Server Edition must be at
the Service Pack 4 level.
The other prerecs are an HTTP server and a Web browser when installing a full server.

Notes
The general installation procedure is very similar as well from the previous version, except
for the following, as illustrated in this panel:
Notice that from the GUI installation panel, one can now choose to install an Authentication
server or a base code install. In the previous version, these special installs were also
possible but only by issuing the setup command from the command line and specifying
special install switches.
There is now also a Custom install capability that allows an advanced user to manually
select the components that are to be installed.

Network Computer Division 8
Notes
These are the panels presented to the user, in sequence, when selecting Custom Install.
The first allows to eliminate the support for either the Power PC based Network Stations or
the X86 based Network Stations in the case where the server being installed is only
required to support one of these two families.
The second panel lists the components that can be selectively chosen for inclusion or
exclusion during a Custom install. This capability allows the administrator a much finer
control over the components that are required and therefore the space needed to install
the product. For example, if Emulation and ICA are never used, those components can be
completely removed from the installed code.
The last panel deals with the Network Station manager program itself (which is not
required on a base code server for example) and the Network Station Login service which
is only required on an authentication server.

Notes
There are two more important panels
One where the user chooses to migrate files from a previous release, and this panel is in
fact similar to the previous release. See the migration information in the product publication
for more details on the types of migration available.
One where the user decides to:
Install a Network Station Manager icon on the desktop that allows launching the NSM
application on the server
Install the IBM DHCP and DDNS server support on this same server. Typically however,
the DHCP server is located on a separate server

Network Computer Division12
Notes
There are a few tasks that take place after the install that are important:
Two files are created based on the configuration information found on the server
The resolv.conf file which contains the required DNS information
The hosts file that contains, as a minimum, the loopback address and the address of the
server
Adds the appropriate information to set the right time zone based on the time zone settings
of the server

Reinstall and Uninstall
A V2R1 Reinstall does NOT automatically uninstall a previous
V2R1 install
If there is a need to move to a different install drive, manually uninstall first,
and then reinstall
An Uninstall GUI is available to:
Uninstall V2R1 completely
Replaces V1R3 service entries if V1R3 still present
Reinstall an equivalent system
Install new components not previously installed
Uninstall V1R3 with no reboot required

Notes
A V2R1 Reinstall does NOT automatically uninstall a previous V2R1 install. For example,
if there is a need to move to a different install drive, manually uninstall first, and then
reinstall.
An Uninstall GUI is available to uninstall V2R1 completely. It also replaces V1R3 service
entries if V1R3 is still present on the system.
An uninstall is also available to reinstall an equivalent system, install new components not
previously installed or uninstall V1R3 with no reboot required

Coexistence with V1R3
V2R1 can be installed with or without the presence of V1R3, so
presence of V1R3 not verified before installing
Coexistence allowed by
Altering the base path (adding V2 to the base path)
Modifying NSM and NSLD to handle coexistence
V2R1 NSLD handles both V1R3 and V2R1 login requests
V1R3 NSLD daemon is stopped and the V2R1 version started
At uninstall of V2R1 where V1R3 is present, the old V1R3 NSLD is re-instated

Network Computer Division16
Notes
In this release, it is possible to have V2R1 coexist on the same server with the previous
V1R3 release.
This is possible because the two releases use a difference root base directory, and it is
provided to allow an easier migration path to the new release.
V2R1 can be installed with or without the presence of V1R3, therefore the presence of
V1R3 not verified before installing.
Coexistence allowed by:
Altering the base path and adding V2 to the base path
Modifying NSM and NSLD to handle coexistence
V2R1 NSLD handles both V1R3 and V2R1 login requests
V1R3 NSLD daemon is stopped and the V2R1 version started
At uninstall of V2R1 where V1R3 is present, the old V1R3 NSLD is reinstated

Network Computer Division17
Time Zone Setting
The install program, based on the server's time zone settings, does
the following:
For all platforms, it adds TZ=US/Central (for example) to the .profile file
For Windows NT, it also adds the command "rdate -su server", where server
is the boot server's IP address
Creates the ../etc/localtime file to contain ../usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Central
During the boot sequence, the time is obtained from the boot
server
For AS/400 and AIX, it is obtained from the file system on the boot server
For NT, it is obtained from the time server on the boot server (time server
must be configured to give out GMT (which is the default) and not local time)
The Network Station clock is set to Universal Coordinated Time
(UCT) which is the number of seconds since Jan 1, 1970
The system time on the launchbar is displayed based on the TZ set
in the .profile file
The system time displayed from a Java application is based on the
TZ set in NSM, if present, otherwise on the TZ set in .profile
