Manual Installation: Terminal ID Manager

If you are licensed for the Terminal ID Manager Add-On, and using a servlet runner other than Tomcat, you must install the Terminal ID Manager as an individual component. The Terminal ID Manager must run as a servlet within a servlet runner. Use tidm.war for your platform (located in the install_manual\components directory) to install the Terminal ID Manager.

It is recommended that you install the Terminal ID Manager on a separate machine from the Administrative Server when you are running Terminal ID management in a high traffic production environment.

Installing tidm.war

Create a tidm directory within the appropriate directory, and extract tidm.war into the tidm directory. Follow the installation information in the documentation for your servlet runner on where to install web applications and what settings to configure.

After you install the Terminal ID Manager, confirm that the servlet runner has started. See Setting Up Terminal ID Manager.

You can edit the web.xml file to specify the location of the MSSData directory, but it is not necessary if the MSSData directory is in the default location. See Specifying the Location of Configuration Information for instructions.


This zip file, located in the \install_manual\components directory, contains sample database script templates with examples of ID attributes and pool types. Unzip this file into [MssServerInstall]\utilities\idmutils.

After completing these steps, see Setting Up Terminal ID Manager.
