This document covers the installation of Eloquence B.08.00 and/or update
from a previous Eloquence release.
Eloquence B.08.00 is supported on the following platforms and operating systems:
Eloquence is available for HP 9000 and HP Integrity servers:
PA-RISC based systems: HP-UX 11iv1 (11.11) or later is required.
Itanium based systems: HP-UX 11iv2 (11.23) or later is required.
Eloquence is available as an RPM package for the IA32 (i686),
AMD64/EM64T (x86_64) and IA64 (Itanium) architecture.
- Linux 2.6.9 kernel
- glibc2.3 based systems (or newer) supporting NPTL based threading
Eloquence is available for 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) Windows systems.
- Windows 2000 or later is required
New installation directory
Eloquence B.08.00 is installed in a separate directory.
- HP-UX and Linux
- The Eloquence B.08.00 software is installed to the "/opt/eloquence/8.0"
directory. This allows Eloquence B.08.00 to be installed in parallel with
previous Eloquence releases.
- An existing installation of a previous Eloquence release is not updated
or replaced when installing Eloquence B.08.00. It may be uninstalled once it
is no longer used. The installation procedure does not copy or migrate the
configuration of a previous Eloquence release.
- By default, Eloquence B.08.00 is installed to the "Eloquence\8.0"
directory below "Program Files". On 64 Bit Windows, Eloquence is installed
below "Program Files (x86)". Product specific files are no longer installed
into the Windows system32 directory. Starting with Eloquence B.08.00, this
will allow future Eloquence versions to coexist on the same system.
- The Eloquence B.08.00 installation program automatically upgrades any
previous Eloquence software to the new installation directory (see upgrade
note in the Windows installation
instructions for details).
Eloquence B.08.00 requires a license key version B.08.00 or
above. For a new Eloquence installation or when upgrading from
a previous Eloquence version a new license key must be obtained
to use the Eloquence server components.
