Preparing the server

Before you can use the InfoPrint Installer, you must prepare your AIX server to use this program. Make sure you have X-server installed on your workstation, you need X-Windows display support to run the InfoPrint Installer. Use this procedure if you are installing InfoPrint Manager for AIX for the first time on an AIX server.

  1. Log into the AIX system as root.
  2. Check to see that the size of your paging space is adequate. It is recommended that you have at least 1 gigabyte of paging space. You can check this with this command: lsps -a. If your paging space is smaller than 1 gigabyte (listed as 1024 MB by AIX), consult your AIX documentation to learn how to increase the size of your paging space. A smaller paging space does not prevent InfoPrint Manager from functioning, but does impact performance.
  3. Insert the most recent Service DVD into the DVD-ROM reader.
    Important: You should install InfoPrint Manager software using the most recent version of the InfoPrint Installer. Us
