Estimate on time required to configure a

By jstieg ·
I need an estimate (for budgeting) of how long it would take to set up a Sun Ultra-10 server with the following software:

HP OpenView
Remedy Action Request System
Primary DNS
Sendmail
Apache Web Server

Estimate on time required to configure a

by nocloo In reply to Estimate on time required ...

Are you sure you want to run all of these on the same
server ?? Mail and DNS are critical applications. I would
suggest you offload it to another server.

1- Basic Solaris installation: 3 hours.
2- Openview
- Installation of the software: 1 day
- Backend database: 1-2 days
- Configuration: Depending on the type of management and the number of objects you want to monitor: 3 days to a month.
3- Remedy ARS
- Backend database server (Sybase/Oracle/etc): 3 days.
- Software: 1 day
- Finetuning: 1 week to 1 years depending on your requirement.
4- Sendmail
- Basic setup with 1 domain: 1 day
- POP/Users account: 2 days.
5- DNS
- Basic setup: 1 day maybe more if you have many hosts under your domain.
6- Apache Server: 1-2 hours depending on what you need. You should add another 2-3 hours for the installation of a C compiler, and other utilities needed to compile the Apache server.

Personally, I would put all my eggs in one basket, and an Ultra-10 is not powerful enough to run all of those ap

Estimate on time required to configure a

by ustutz In reply to Estimate on time required ...

Depending on technical expertise:

1 Day for hardware installation
1 Day operating system, DNS, Sendmail, and Apache installation only.
1 Day for OpenView installation only
1 Day for Remedy installation only

Configuration depends on "how standard" and how complex your system will be. Each of the components can be up and running in a day. Adding additional data (such as hosts for DNS or users for sednmail) becomes a function of how fast you can type.

Apache, in turn, is a function of your web / software developers. I.e., one day for the default page. Anything beyond that is software developement.

If you do not have a "standard" network configuration, registered DNS and mail domains, etc., it'll take longer to debug / configure.
