After you have created the AssetTrack database, you can now install AssetTrack Server. AssetTrack Server cannot be installed over the network. Therefore you must run AssetTrackSetup.exe on the machine where you wish to install AssetTrack Server. Please review the AssetTrack system requirements to ensure that your server meets the minimum requirements for AssetTrack Server.
To install AssetTrack Server:
|Database Server||The name of the database server that hosts the AssetTrack Database to which the web application should connect. The name of the database server you entered during Database Setup will be the default.|
|Database Name||The name of the AssetTrack database to which the web application should connect. The name of the database you created during Database Setup will be the default.|
|Username and Password||These are the SQL Server login credentials that you want AssetTrack Server to use on a day-to-day basis. They should have been created during the AssetTrack database setup process. During this phase of setup, AssetTrack will validate these credentials.|
|For 64-bit operating systems, specify the "Program Files (x86)" directory.|
|Install Directory||The directory where AssetTrack will be installed on the server.|
|Virtual Directory||The name of the IIS Virtual Directory where you would like AssetTrack Server installed. Unless it is necessary, it is recommended that you leave the default value of AssetTrack.|
|AssetTrack security||This is the default security setting. AssetTrack security allows you to control access to AssetTrack using AssetTrack's security model. Every user will be required to have their own AssetTrack username and password and they will be required to log in every time they access the server. Use this setting if you do not have a Windows domain or you do not want AssetTrack users to be tied to Windows users.|
|Windows security||Use Windows security if you want to associate AssetTrack users with users in an Active Directory domain. AssetTrack users will still need to be created, but once associated with a Windows user, users can use their domain credentials to access the server and the mobile. In addition, if these users are logged into their machines using their domain credentials, they will not have to log in separately to AssetTrack Server or the Management Console.|
|Failed to read IISWebs table error|
If you get the following error message during installation of AssetTrack Server, see the Troubleshooting AssetTrack Server Installation page to resolve it.
IIS 7.0 is the version of IIS available on Windows Server 2008.
IIS 7.5 is the version of IIS available on Windows Server 2008 R2.
Running AssetTrack on either of these versions of IIS requires some additional configuration.
By creating a separate Application Pool for AssetTrack, you can independently configure and mange it without affecting other application pools running on the same server.
|This section always applies if you are running AssetTrack Server on IIS 7.5 and may apply if you are running on IIS 7.0.|
Find the <system.webServer> node and remove the <handlers> child node. This change should allow web service calls to work as expected.
This section can be ignored if you are running a 32-bit operating system.
If you encounter installation or configuration problems, please refer to the Troubleshooting page for possible solutions.
You should now be ready to access AssetTrack Server using a web browser.
