First UMS Installation

It is advisable to use a server without an existing UMS installation - for the first installation.

  1. Download the current version of the IGEL Universal Management Suite from the IGEL download server.
  2. Check the system requirements in the data sheet.
  3. Launch the installer by running the EXE file.

    You will need administrator rights for the computer in order to install IGEL UMS.

  4. Read and confirm the license agreement and the explanation of the installation process.
  5. Select a path for the installation and the components to be installed:
  6. Confirm the message regarding the licensing of the HA Extension.
  7. Enable the option for creating an IGEL network token.
  8. Specify a location for saving the token.

    Be sure to keep the IGEL network token in a safe place. This token will be needed for all subsequent server installations. If the IGEL network token is lost, the complete installation must be started again.

  9. Optional: Load a tc.keystore file from an existing UMS installation.
  10. Choose a name for the entry in the Windows Start Menu.
  11. Read the summary and start the installation process.
  12. Close the program once the installation is complete.

    Configure and enable the data source in UMS Administrator.

The IGEL Universal Management Suite server as well as a load balancer will now run on this computer.

The Windows installer creates entries in the Start Menu. An icon for launching the UMS console will also be placed on the desktop.
