How do I add the Digital Asset Management (DAM) tab to my DM installation?

I have installed the tomcat distribution of the 5.5-SNAPSHOT release of Nuxeo DM. How do I add the new DAM tab - with all its Digital Asset Management capabilities - next to my “Document Management” tab so that I have both tools available inside one web application?

The Platform 5.5 will come with an update interactive wizard which ask you which modules you want to instal. You will then be able to have both Document Management and Digital Asset Management features simultaneously on a same installation.

The Wizard might not be yet in the snapshot you used but will be there very soon!

Wow, that´s good news! The same for CMF?

The same for CMF.<br> To be more precise, you will have to install the unique Tomcat distribution (which will be CAP, not DM), then choose if you want DM, DM+DAM, … or CMF.<br> The wizard is already available; you can start it with "nuxeoctl wizard" if it was not automatically started the first time.

And how do I add DM to DAM installation (using provided Vmware image)?

Running the wizard give a massive error:

It looks like you're launching directly from the nuxeo user instead of /etc/init.d/nuxeo, so your server doesn't know where nuxeo.conf is. You can either set the NUXEO_CONF env. variable in your environment (pointing to /etc/nuxeo/nuxeo.conf), or set nuxeo.wizard.done=false in the conf and use the init.d script (as root).

nuxeoctl is ONLY available in /var/lib/nuxeo/server/bin

Strange, as even after this error on server reboot DM tab just shown up in GUI



Mathieu talked about /etc/init.d/nuxeo service script in /etc/init.d/, not nuxeoctl. /etc/init.d/nuxeo is calling nuxeoctl with the right environment parameters (NUXEO_CONF, …)

Also, don't ask questions in the answers section. As a new question.
