About Automated Installation

When possible, we recommend using the automated installer to install Management and Security Server and your entitled Add-On products. Check the Installation Variations if your system requirements differ from an automated installation.

Use the automated installer to install the Management and Security Server components:

  • Administrative Server

  • Metering Server

  • Configuration Utilities

  • Security Proxy Server *

  • Terminal ID Manager *

* The Security Proxy Server and Terminal ID Manager are Add-On Products that can be installed with the other components. A license entitlement is required to enable and activate these products.

You can create sessions and set secure connections right away. Then you can augment security and add other features by activating and configuring your licensed Add-On Products.
