Installing Blueworx Voice Response Version 7 for the first time

Use this procedure to install the Blueworx Voice Response software when you have not been using a previous level of the product.

You can install all the mandatory and optional items together, or you can install just the mandatory items, then install one or more optional items later.

Note: Before continuing, you must have installed DB2 as described in Starting installation of Blueworx Voice Response.
  1. Untar the BVR 7 install media supplied by Blueworx Support into a suitable directory: Type the following command and press Enter:
     tar -xvf BVR7_Gold.tar
  2. In the directory with the untar'ed media open smitty to perform install: type the following command and press Enter:
     smitty install_latest
  3. In the INPUT device/directory for software field enter . (period) to indicate your current directory and press Enter.
  4. Selecting the filesets: Press F4 in the SOFTWARE to install entry field to list the filesets in the directory.

    The system displays the SOFTWARE to Install menu.

  5. Select the following mandatory package:
    • dirTalk.DT
    Do not select any other packages. Any other required filesets are installed automatically.
  6. When you have selected the fileset to install, press Enter, and then press Enter again to actually start the installation process.

    The system installs the software. This could take from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on which options you install and the model of Power System you are using. When the process is complete, OK appears at the top of the screen. Check the messages at the bottom of the screen to confirm the successful installation of each selected package.

  7. Review the output. It may contain information about changes that were made during the installation.

    If any filesets failed to install due to missing prerequisite AIX filesets, install the missing filesets from the AIX installation media or apply AIX PTFs to upgrade the filesets to the correct level. Repeat the Blueworx Voice Response installation.

  8. Press F10 to exit from SMIT.

Next step: Go to Setting up the AIX account (standalone system only).
