Generic Installation Procedures

This section provides instructions for installing a typical Genesys application that you have configured using Genesys Administrator.

Refer to the instructions for a particular application for the location of installation packages on a product CD and for any application-specific deviations from the standard installation procedure.

Server Applications

This section describes a standard installation procedure for a server application on UNIX and Windows operating systems.

Prerequisites

Warning
During installation on UNIX, all files are copied into the directory you specify. The install process does not create any subdirectories within this directory,; therefore, do not install different products into the same directory.
  1. On the product CD, locate a shell script called install.sh.
  2. Run this script from the command prompt by typing the file name.
  3. When prompted, specify the Host Name of the computer on which this server is to run.
  4. When prompted, specify the:
    • Host Name of the computer on which Configuration Server is running.
    • Port used by client applications to connect to Configuration Server.
    • User Name used to log in to the Configuration Layer.
    • Password used to log in to the Configuration Layer.
  5. The installation displays the list of applications of the specified type configured for this host. Type the number of the server application to be installed.
  6. Specify the the full path of the destination directory into which this server is to be installed.
    If the installation script finds that the destination directory is not empty, it prompts you to do one of the following:
    • Back up all files in the directory.
    • Overwrite only the files contained in this package.
    • Wipe the directory clean.
    • Type the number that corresponds to your selection and confirm your choice.

  7. If asked which version of the product to install, 32-bit or 64-bit, choose the one appropriate to your environment.
  8. If you plan to use functionality that requires a license, such as Solution Control Server (SCS) with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), type y when prompted and enter one of the following:
    • The full path to the license file
    • The License Manager port and host

As soon as the installation process is finished, a message appears indicating that installation was successful. The process places the server application in the directory specified during the installation.

Warning
Genesys does not recommend installation of its components via a Microsoft Remote Desktop connection. The installation should be performed locally.
  1. On the product CD, locate and double-click setup.exe to start the Genesys Installation Wizard.
  2. Click About on the wizard's Welcome page to review the read_me file. The file also contains a link to the server's Release Notes file.
  3. Click Next on the Welcome page to proceed with the installation.
    Tip
    Click Next at the end of each step to proceed to the next page.
  4. On the Connection Parameters to the Genesys Configuration Server page, specify the following login parameters:
    • Host and Port of Configuration Server
    • User name and Password used to log in to the Configuration Layer.
  5. The Select Application page displays all applications of this type that the Configuration Database contains. When you select one application from the list, the wizard displays some parameters configured for the selected application (such as application type, host, working directory, command line, and command-line arguments).
    Select the application to install.
  6. Warning
    If the component does not require a technical license, omit step 6 and step 7. If the component requires a technical license for startup, omit step 6. If the component requires a technical license to enable a certain feature, but the license is not otherwise required, proceed with step 6.
  7. On the Run-time License Configuration page, select one of the following options:
    • Use License if you plan to use features that require special licenses.
    • Without License if you do not plan to use features that require special licenses. In this instance, go to step 8.
      If you decide to use a licensed feature later on, reinstall the server and enter the appropriate license information through the Genesys Installation Wizard.
  8. On the Access to License page, select one of the following options:
    • License Manager-You want your server application to use host and port parameters to connect to the license server. In this instance, you must enter values for the host and the port of the license server.
    • License File-You want your server application to retrieve license server information from the license file. Click Browse to navigate to the license file.
  9. On the Choose Destination Location page, the wizard displays the destination directory, as specified in the Working Directory property of the server's Application object. If the path configured as Working Directory is invalid, the wizard generates a path to the destination directory in the C:\Program Files\GCTI\<Product Name> format.</bw> If necessary, click one of the following:
    • Browse to select another destination folder. In this case, the wizard will update the Application object's Working Directory in the Configuration Database.
    • Default to reinstate the path specified in Working Directory.
  10. On the Ready to Install information page, click:
    • Back to update any installation information.
    • Install to proceed with installation. Installation Status displays the progress of the installation.
  11. On the Installation Complete page, click Finish.

As a result of the installation, the wizard adds Application icons to the:

  • Windows Start menu, under Programs > Genesys Solutions.
  • Windows Add or Remove Programs window, as a Genesys server.
  • Windows Services list, as a Genesys service, with Automatic startup type.

Graphical User Interface Applications
