Installation

This chapter describes the requirements for individual installations. Each installation is explained step-by-step. It is assumed that you perform the installations for the first time using the start.exe startup file. You can also start individual installation programs via the corresponding Setup.exe.

If system files are changed during installation, you are prompted to reboot your computer after installation.

Please refer to the chapter Administration (Page 253) to obtain information on additional settings required for using ARIS products.

If you re-run an installation for installed programs, the following options are provided:

Modify Program

Use this option to add more components and/or languages.

Repair program

This option repeats an installation with the current settings. This is useful if a program file was deleted by accident, for example. Any subsequently installed hotfixes will be deleted!

Remove

This option uninstalls the component for which the installation program was launched.

Note

When you perform an update, add a language (Modify Program option), or repeat an installation (Repair Program option), the system checks if a CFG file was changed manually. If so, a backup copy of that file is generated before the new CFG file is installed. For example, if you have modified the arisclient.cfg file manually, it is backed up (Page 247) in the directory <ARIS installation directory>\javaclient\backup\config. The settings from the previous installation are retained, for example the installation path, the program group, and the languages you installed.

If you run an update installation for ARIS Business Server, all configuration changes are applied.

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

Warning

Please only use the file userServerSettings.cfg to change the configuration. This ensures that your changes are preserved in future update installations. The other ARIS Business Server configuration files are overwritten for each installation.

Perform an update installation (Page 96) for ARIS Business Publisher Server only if your system has not been adjusted. Changes you made or extensions by IDS Scheer Customized Solutions are lost during an update or subsequent installation.

Download version or service release

You can download a full version of ARIS products or a service release from the IDS Scheer FTP server. These files are password-protected, and you can request the relevant passwords from ARIS Support (Page

453).

Note

Perform an update installation (Page 96) for ARIS Business Publisher Server only if your system has not been adjusted. Changes you made or extensions by IDS Scheer Customized Solutions are lost during an update or subsequent installation.

Procedure

1. You can obtain the exact ID of your installed version from the About dialog of your program. To do this, click on Help/About.

The identifier at the end of the version information indicates the exact version that is installed.

2. Download the relevant files with .zip and .md5 extensions from the IDS Scheer FTP server. You can use the corresponding (same name) md5 files (hash files) to check whether the ZIP archives have been downloaded correctly.

Use a browser or an FTP program to do this, and enter

ftp://ftp.ids-scheer.de/pub/ARIS/HELPDESK/ARIS710/.

This is where you find the ARIS_PLATFORM subdirectory and the newsletters for the ARIS Service Releases in German and English.

3. Download the relevant file.

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

ARIS_PLATFORM directory

In this directory, you find the files for downloading a specific ARIS product and an additional subdirectory that is called DVD and contains the entire content of the installation media.

Example for individual installations:

ARIS<version number>PLATFORM_<six-digit identifier>.ZIP - setup program for client installation (Page 10)

ARIS<version number>SERVER_<six-digit identifier>.ZIP - setup program for ARIS Business Server (Page 13)

DBSCRIPTS_312665.ZIP - SQL *Plus scripts (Page 256)

The identifiers in the file name (e.g. ARIS_7.1.0.312665_DVD.zip) tell you whether the files contained in the archive are newer than the version installed on your computer.

Client installation - Windows operating system

This chapter describes the installation of ARIS clients on Windows operating systems.

Important documents are automatically created in English (always, except in an exclusively German installation) when you install ARIS Platform products. You can access these documents via Start/Programs/ARIS Business Performance Edition/Documents. If additional languages are installed, the documents and help files of those languages (Windows operating system) are automatically installed.

The installation ARIS WITH LOCAL STANDARD DATABASE SYSTEM also installs the standard database system. This allows you to create databases on your computer and work with them without other users being able to access them. You can also connect to an ARIS Business Server to create databases there and work with them.

The installation ARIS WITHOUT LOCAL STANDARD DATABASE SYSTEM does not provide the standard database system. This means that you can only create databases and work with them if you connect to ARIS Business Server. To be able to work locally, select ARIS WITH LOCAL STANDARD DATABASE SYSTEM.

Procedure

1. Ensure that the system requirements for all products and functionalities are met (see chapter Administration (Page 253)).

2. Insert the ARIS Platform installation media into your drive. If the start page is not displayed automatically, click on the name of your drive in Windows Explorer and run the start.exe program.

ARIS Business Server installations (Windows operating system)

This chapter describes installations related to ARIS Business Server that can be performed under a Windows operating system.

All ARIS clients use ARIS Business Server to access the database server and thus work with a common data basis.

To ensure optimum load distribution and better protection against failure, more than one ARIS Business Server can be used.

The default server includes:

ARIS Business Server

ARIS Site Manager

ARIS Converter

VB report execution environment

This section describes processor, memory, system configuration, and software requirements of the various server and client computers for ARIS. For simultaneous use of other applications, a faster processor, additional memory, or system extension may be required.

Depending on the application scenario (e.g., Merge or Simulation), large databases can involve extended runtimes. Applications, such as ARIS Business Optimizer, Report, backup, and restore may require more RAM. On the other hand, if more RAM is available than listed below, runtime behavior might improve.

In some cases, minimum and recommended system requirements are specified. The minimum system requirements must be met in order for the ARIS products to work properly. Meeting the recommended system requirements will assure good performance even with large data volumes. In general, it is advisable to use up-to-date hardware taking into account the number of users who will be accessing the same ARIS Business Server (Page 317).

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

Note

This manual describes the settings and features as they were at the time of print. Since manual and software are subject to different production cycles, the description of settings and features may differ from actual settings and features. Information about discrepancies is provided in the Readme file that accompanies the product. Please read this file and take the information into account when installing, setting up, and using the product.

ARIS Business Server saves configuration data at the operating system level. We strongly recommend protection at the operating system level to minimize the risk of data misuse.

(1) For Unix systems, only 64-bit systems are approved.

(2) In 32-bit systems, the maximum size of a Virtual Machine (VM) is 1 GB.

The system requirements depend on the number of users (1 GB main memory for 50 users) and use of certain features.

The RAM required (Page 317) for JavaScript reports varies greatly. If you want to run report scripts that process large quantities of database items, we recommend a 64-bit Windows installation or a Unix installation due to the upper memory limit of 1.2 GB main memory for ARIS Business Server. Please also note the information on script development (Page 440).

If you use the VB report execution environment, you need an additional 20 MB (Page 396) main memory for each simultaneously created report.

If you use ARIS Converter, you need an additional 256 MB main memory and 512 MB hard disk space for converting an SAP reference model database, for example.

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

If you create a Publisher export and use links to large files (>15 MB), you may need more memory for your ARIS Business Server. If the memory is insufficient, the export process is canceled.

If you use the SAP Solution Manager synchronization in ARIS for SAP, we recommend that you provide additional memory (Page 369), especially for the local server LOCAL and ARIS Business Server.

For additional information, please contact IDS Scheer Support.

Network

High-speed network (>=100 Mbit) between database server and ARIS Business Server.

JRE

Windows

If you have ARIS Business Server installed and start ARIS Platform products as programs, an internal JRE version is automatically used. You do not need to install JRE separately. If you have already installed JRE, your installation is not used by ARIS.

Your JRE installation is only used if you start ARIS Platform products from your browser.

The following are approved: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5.0_08 and subsequent patches as well as 1.6.0_04 and subsequent patches that are in the public domain (Java SE on the SUN home page except Java SE for Business) and generally released by SUN.

To display different character sets (Japanese, Arabic, Cyrillic, etc.), the corresponding file in directory <JRE installation directory>\<version>\lib must be named font.properties. For example, if you wish to display Japanese characters, you must rename the font.properties.ja file to font.properties.

Note

SUN renamed the JRE versions. JRE 1.5.0_08 is now called JRE 5.0, Update 8. Approvals are also valid for subsequent updates.

ARIS products are tested using the JRE that is current at the time of release.

If JRE 1.5.0_08 and subsequent patches have been approved for an ARIS product, the approval is valid for both JRE 1.5.0_08 and JRE 1.5.0_09 and also for any subsequent patch levels in the Java SE public domain (that is, except Java SE for Business) on the SUN home page. SUN Microsystems guarantees compatibility between the JRE patch levels.

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

ARIS Installation and Administration Guide

Software

 

Details

   

Therefore, the ARIS approvals for JREs are valid for all patch levels of a version.

If you are using JRE 1.6 update 3 or an older version, copy the file jaxb- api.jar from the directory <Web Client Components>\lib to the directory <Java JRE installation directory>/endorsed, e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_01\lib\endorsed.

If the directory endorsed does not exist, you must create it. Please note that you must repeat this procedure for every update of version 3 or older. We therefore recommend installation of version 4 or higher.

If you have Java 6 update 10 installed, problems may occur despite better performance. Depending on your graphics card and driver configuration, installation of Java 6 update 10 may cause delays in the Designer and Matrices modules.

In this case, use the following command line entry to start the program:

-Dsun.java2d.d3d=false

Protocols

Data exchange between browser-capable ARIS clients and ARIS Business Server can be encrypted with SSL (1024-bit RSA).

(Page 325)

SSL capability is already integrated into ARIS and only needs to be activated when needed.

If ARIS clients within the intranet or in a VPN environment (Virtual Private Network) access ARIS Business Server, no firewall is required. Communication between clients and ARIS Business Server takes place via the CORBA protocol IIOP (Internet Inter Object Request Broker Protocol).

Output

If, for example, you want to output documents in PDF format using Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel, you must have Adobe Reader and Microsoft Office version 2000, 2002, 2003, or 2007 installed. If you use reports to import data from Excel tables, please ensure that the tables have been saved in XLS format. If pop-up blockers are activated for the domain, it may not always be possible to open report output in PDF format from a Publisher export.

In addition, all applications that are linked in your models should be installed.

Note

ARIS Business Server does not support NAT (Network Address Translation) by default. However, IDS Scheer offers customized solutions. Additional information is available from our support team.
