Verifying disk space and open file limits before installing HCL Connections
On all operating systems, ensure that you have 6 GB of temporary disk space. On Linux™, set the Open File Descriptor limit to at least 40000 before installing HCL Connections.
Check that the
/tmpfolder on UNIX/Linux systems or the
%TEMP%folder on Windows™ systems has at least 6 GB before installing Connections Content Manager. If there is not sufficient disk space, then set the environment variable
IATEMPDIRto point to the location where there is at least 6 GB. To update the

<new location>is a location on your machine that has enough free space (at least 6 GB, preferably more).
- On Windows:
(Linux only) The Open File Descriptor limit must be set to at least 40000 for the user ID that is installing HCL Connections.
Open a command line to view the current Open File Descriptor limit:
If the number is less than 40000, increase the number for the user.
If you are installing as the root user, add the following line to the user's profile file and save the file:
ulimit -n 40000
If you are using a non-root user account to install HCL Connections, ask the administrator to add the following line to the
non-root_account hard nofile 40000
On small deployments where the database server is on the same machine, the limit might need to be higher, as specified by the database's requirements.
