Installing and Uninstalling WFM Components

This topic provides information and procedures about how to install and uninstall the Workforce Management (WFM) components. All of the component installations are straight forward, but you will need to complete additional tasks for WFM Web. See Installing WFM Web.

To uninstall any or all WFM components, see Uninstalling Workforce Management.

Installing the Components

Before you begin installing the WFM components, determine whether to install more than one component on a single machine. If you do so, determine which components should be installed together.

See Deploying WFM, for some general deployment guidelines and recommendations. See the Genesys Hardware Sizing Guide for more extensive recommendations.

By default, all the servers are installed as Windows Services. For instructions about how to use Windows services, see the Windows Help file.

For instructions about how to install and uninstall the WFM components, see the procedures on this page and Installing WFM Web.

Important
Functionality that was previously in the WFM Configuration Utility is now in WFM Web (see Workforce Management 8.5 Release Information) and Configuration Utility is no longer supported, nor delivered on the WFM Installation DVD.

Date and Time Dependencies for WFM Applications

The following are the sources of the date and time setting for WFM applications:

  • In WFM Web Supervisor, the date, time, and number formats depend on the language preferences configured in the browser you are using.
  • In WFM Web Agent, the date and time format depends on the locale of Web Server and is identical for all agents connected to the same server.

Uninstalling Workforce Management

Use the Task Summary in this section to ensure you have completely uninstalled WFM.

Deleting WFM Web from Tomcat

Purpose: To delete WFM Web from Tomcat.
Summary:

  • Genesys recommends using Tomcat Manager to correctly deploy/undeploy WFM Web.
  • Uninstalling WFM Web does not remove the .war file or the WFM directory from the webapps folder. Genesys recommends that you remove the .war file and WFM directory prior to reinstalling or updating WFM Web.
  • If you reinstall or update WFM Web, before clients can access the software, you must remove the old file and replace the .war file with the new version of the file. The default file name is wfm.war and the default directory name is wfm.
  • If you reinstall WFM Web without first manually deleting these files, the files are not updated. WFM Web will not run if you install a later version of WFM Web over an earlier one without first deleting these files.

Start of Procedure

  1. Open the <CATALINA_HOME&gt:\webapps directory.
  2. Delete the WFM .war file and the WFM directory from the webapps folder.
  3. Delete the $CATALINA_BASE\work\Catalina\localhost\wfm folder.
