  5. Select jconnect55.zip and save the file to the /tmp directory on the Avaya IR system.

    If you cannot directly download the file to the Avaya IR system, download it to a temporary location. Then transfer the file (using the ftp command or by some other method) to the /tmp directory on the Avaya IR system.

To install the Sybase JDBC driver:

  1. If necessary, log in as root.
  2. At the command prompt, enter cd /tmp

    The driver software is copied to the /vs/java directory where the Avaya IR software expects it to be. To enable the driver, you must restart the Apache Tomcat servlet engine.

  5. Enter /etc/init.d/tomcat stop

    The system displays messages indicating that the Tomcat engine is stopped.
