Turning on replication when it was not installed when the system was setup

My company now has the need to setup replication to other locations. When our system was setup the checkbox to do replication was not checked. I have been trying to install this now after the fact with this TPI https://www.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=139566 I have had no luck and PTC has been hit or miss at contacting me to help me on this issue. Has anyone else gone through this process.

Wayne, all you need to do is to run an Ant script to create the zip files required for the file server installation. Just run the following from a Windchill shell and adapt to you staging directory path as per the example bellow.



To prepare, Apache, Tomcat, Info*Engine, Java JDK, PTC Solutions Installer, Windchill Directory Server, Windchill Services and Service Pack.



ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_CAPPS\Apache

ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_CAPPS\Tomcat

ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_IE

ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_JDK

ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_PSI

ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_WDS

ant -f createZip.xml -Duser.install.dir=%WT_HOME% -Dsource_image.dir=C:\Sources\CD_WS

ant -f create_ccsdsu.xml -Dinstall.files.maint=true

Before you zip up the PSI, I believe that there is a further modification that needs to be made:

** Important: The PTC Solution Installer CD image requires additional preparation steps before it is ready to be zipped. First, the CD contents must be copied to a local location. Then a file “override_standardRules.properties” must be created and placed in <copied_location>/Disk1/InstallerData/psi. This entry must then be added to the file and saved:

RULES_OVERRIDE=ccs_installerRules.xml

Now the local modified version of the PTC Solution Installer must be referenced by the source_image.dir property above when constructing the zips.

Hope that helps...
