This section outlines a step-by-step instruction on how to install INTELLECT™ software as a “Server”.

Note.

The following features are to be taken into account while installing INTELLECT™ software:

INTELLECT™ software is to be installed on a “clean” Windows OS (see the Operating system requirements section).

To install INTELLECT™ software, administrator rights are required.

To install INTELLECT™ software, do the following:

  1. Insert INTELLECT installation disk in the CD-ROM drive, its contents will be displayed in a dialog box.

  2. Run the setup.exe file to start the INTELLECT™ software installation procedure.
    As a result the dialog box of choosing language is displayed.

    Note.

    The notification box is displayed if Microsoft.Net Framework 2.0 has not been installed.

    Click Yes for Microsoft.Net Framework 2.0 auto installation.

    Attention!

    When INTELLECT™ is installed on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 OS, the Microsoft.Net Framework 3.5 is to be installed. If the Microsoft.Net Framework 3.5 has not been installed, then the warning is displayed. In this case stop installing INTELLECT™ and install the Microsoft.Net Framework 3.5. You will find the instructions on how to install it at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/hh506443.aspx
  3. Choose the language of INTELLECT™ software installation and click Install.

    As a result the Type of installation dialog box is displayed.
  4. Select the Server type of installation.
  5. To log all installation events, set the Enable full installation log checkbox.

    Note.

    While installing and uninstalling the software events are logged to Intellect.log and Intellect uninstall.log correspondingly. To collect log-files, the “Support.exe” tool is to be used (see The utility for collecting configuration data on servers and RWS for the Technical Support section).
  6. Click Next.
    The Selecting components for installation dialog box is displayed.
  7. Set the checkboxes next to the components that are to be installed.

    Note.

    All offered components are recommended to be installed.

    However, if installation is performed using the integrated software package (with modules of vertical solutions), then there will be an option to select vertical solutions that are to be installed. Only those vertical solutions that will be in use are to be selected. There is no need to install all vertical solutions.

    Vertical solutions will be installed after installing Axxon Intellect Enterprise. Information on how to install vertical solutions can be found in the corresponding documentation.

    If you are not installing from a disk, you will also be able to select the languages to be installed. To do this, download the language pack from ITV's official website (http://www.itv.ru/) before beginning the installation and put the archive's files into the languages folder in the installer's directory.. As a result, the Selecting components for installation window will offer the ability to select the languages to be installed.

    Note.

    If this method of installing languages is not suitable, each language may be installed separately (see Installing the language). After the installation, use the utility tweaki.exe to switch languages (see Switching languages in the Intellect Software System).

  8. Click the Install button.

    The dialog box of database server selection is displayed.

    Attention!

    Access of some user to the database is impossible without additional settings of the idb.exe utility and knowing of the login and password of Administrator if installation of the Intellect software package is performed by Administrator and Windows account data are in use for SQL authentication. So it is highly recommended not to use such authentication method of the SQL server.

    Note.

    If there is necessity to use the SQL-server installed on this (local) computer, the “(local)\SQLEXPRESS” item (set bydefault) is to be selected.

    Attention!

    You cannot connect different Servers to one database.
    Server can use remote database, but requirements to network and other resources become higer and this can cause delays while transmitting events and states of cores.
  18. Set the authorization parameters that will be used by INTELLECT™ while connecting to the SQL-server.

    Note.

    If INTELLECT™ is installed as a Service, select the SQL Server identity check, i.e. set the Use the following username and password checkbox and specify the username and password to login the Server database.If the database is to be connected via the Windows account, then for proper operation of INTELLECT™ any other the user is to have corresponding SQL Server permissions.
