I’m trying to install the free trial of 2017 October (Apama and webMethods 10.1, etc) and the installer asks me for my Software AG Empower user name and password. I entered the user name and password I use to access this forum (which is the only username and password I have for software AG) and I get the message “the user name or password you entered is invalid”.
The Installer asks for your Empower credentials to download software. If you’ve already downloaded the trial, then try
- Advanced Options
- Use installation image
The two files I have are softwareagInstaller and softwareAGLicenseKeys.zip. I don’t have Empower credentials.
I presumed that the procedure for WebMethods was the same as with other trials and that you had been sent an e-mail with a license key and a link to a zip download. With that zip file as your installation image there would be no need for Empower credentials.
Thanks for the tip, I hadn’t downloaded the webMFreeDoanload101 file yet. Reading the installation FAQ helped. After installing I’m wondering if I should have installed an oracle DB as well.
You need external DB configured in JDBC pools only if you intend to use TN, MWS , MFT. If you want to explore the plain ESB layer you do not need it.
