Preparing to Install

For each component, you can use either the automated installer or the archive files to manually install the component.

You will use an automated configuration utility as part of the automated install; in many cases, you can use an automated configuration utility after a manual install.

Follow these guidelines when installing:

  • The Administrative Server must be installed. The Security Proxy, when available, is optional.

  • Any Management and Security Server (or its predecessor, Reflection Security Gateway) component currently running must be shut down before installing or upgrading. (The automated installer will close components for you if you installed the earlier version with an automated installer.)

  • Make sure that you have the necessary account permissions to install components on the target server.

    If you plan to use X.509 client certificates or secure LDAP access control, make sure the account used to run the Administrative Server has permission to write to the Java SDK certificate authority certificates file (cacerts). The default location in Windows is:

    C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\ MSS\jre\lib\security

    Note: If you are upgrading from Reflection Security Gateway, the Windows location remains

    C:\Program Files\Attachmate\ReflectionServer\jre\lib\security
