Linux Installation Instructions

OSS has developed an installation script to provide an easy method to install and setup Sculptor. The script can download a Sculptor tarball (installation package) from the OSS ftp site or install a local tarball found in the same directory.
  1. Download the Linux installation script from the OSS ftp site or the OSS download web page. Both options require an activated OSS login.
  2. Change permissions on the script to allow execution by executing the command
    chmod +x Linux_Install_Script
  3. Run the script. The script must be run with root privileges. This can be accomplished by logging in as root or using "sudo" to run the script.
  4. Follow the script prompts. By default, Sculptor will be installed to "/opt/Sculptor-3" and creates a link /usr/local/bin/sculptor to the run script.
  5. Continue installation with Configuring Node-Locked Licenses or Configuring Client Machines depending on your license type.
  6. Execute the rehash command and start using Sculptor by typing sculptor on the command line.
