On each server or virtual machine that is to be a system instance:
  1. Download the installation package hcpcs-version_number.tgz and the MD5 checksum file hcpcs-version_number.tgz.md5 and store them in a folder on the server or virtual machine.
  2. Verify the integrity of the installation package. For example:
    md5sum -c hcpcs-version_number.tgz.md5
    If the package integrity is verified, the command displays OK.
  3. In the largest disk partition on the server or virtual machine, create a folder named install_path/hcpcs. For example:
    mkdir /opt/hcpcs
  4. Move the installation package from the folder where you stored it to install_path/hcpcs. For example:
    mv hcpcs-version_number.tgz /opt/hcpcs/hcpcs-version_number.tgz
  5. Navigate to the installation folder. For example:
    cd /opt/hcpcs
  6. Unpack the installation package. For example:
    tar -zxf hcpcs-version_number.tgz
    A number of directories are created within the installation folder.

    If you encounter problems unpacking the installation file (for example, the error message "tar: This does not look like a tar archive"), the file might have been packed multiple times during download. Use the following commands to fully extract the file:

    $ gunzip hcpcs-version_number.tgz

    $ mv hcpcs-version_number.tar hcpcs-version_number.tgz

    $ tar -zxf hcpcs-version_number.tgz

  7. Run the installation script install:
    • Don't change directories after running the installation script. The following tasks are performed in your current folder.
    • The installation script can be run only one time on each instance. You cannot rerun this script to try to repair or upgrade a system instance.
