Installation under Windows

Standard installation

To install the IGEL Universal Management Suite under Windows, proceed as follows:

  1. If you would like to install the software on 64-bit Windows, first install the libraries for 32-bit support as described in the UMS installation on 64-bit systems FAQ.
  2. Download the current version of the IGEL Universal Management Suite from the IGEL Download Server.
  3. Launch the installer.

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

  4. Read and confirm the license agreement.
  5. Read the information regarding the installation process.
  6. Select the destination folder for the installation.
  7. If you already have a UMS installation: Select the file name for the backup of your embedded database, licenses and certificates. If you do not choose a file name and click on Next, no backup will be created.
  8. Select components:
  9. Select the UMS data directory.
  10. Enter a user name and password for the database connection.
  11. Choose a name for the start menu folder.
  12. Read the summary and start the installation process.

    The Windows Installer will install the UMS, create entries in the Windows software directory and in the start menu and place a start icon on the desktop.

  13. Close the program by clicking on Done after completing the installation.

    If you have chosen the standard installation, the UMS server will run with the embedded database.

  14. Start the UMS console.
  15. Connect the UMS console to the server using the access data for the database that you entered during installation.

    You will find information regarding use of the UMS with external databases under Connecting external databases.

Silent installation of the UMS console

You can carry out the installation silently by first creating an .inf file and then launching the installation using a command line.

Silent installation is only possible for the UMS console. It is not possible for the UMS administrator and the UMS server.

Further information can be found in the Unattended/silent installation of UMS console FAQs.
