dmadmin@laptop:/opt/documentum/sw/cs$ chmod 777 serverSetup.bin
dmadmin@laptop:/opt/documentum/sw/cs$ ./serverSetup.bin

Docbroker and repository

  • Create the tablespace file for the repository (dctm214):

dmadmin@laptop:/$ su – postgres
postgres@laptop:~$ mkdir /var/lib/postgresql/12/main/db_dctm214_dat.dat
postgres@laptop:~$ exit

  • Run the configurator:

dmadmin@laptop:/opt/documentum/product/21.4/install$ ./dm_launch_server_config_program.sh
