Installing GVP with the Deployment WizardThe Genesys Administrator wizard simplifies the GVP deployment by prompting you for the information that is required to install each component. The Import Wizard enables you to import the GVP installation packages into a repository. You can use the built-in Genesys Administrator Repository, or you can [+] create your own repository. Then, use the Deployment Wizard to install the GVP components individually with a basic configuration, or to install multiple instances of the same component on different hosts.
The GVP installation CDs contain the installation packages for both Windows and Linux operating systems. See GVP Installation DVDs.
Use the following procedures to install GVP on the targeted host(s):
- Procedure: Importing the Installation Packages into the Repository (using GA)
- GAX Procedures to Upload, Copy, Deploy, Download, or Delete Installation Packages.
- Procedure: Using the Deployment Wizard to Install GVP
Procedure: Importing the Installation Packages into the Repository
Do this before starting the Deployment Wizard to install the GVP components.
- Verift that the installation packages are copied to, and accessible from, the server on which Genesys Administrator is installed or a network drive for which the appropriate permissions are set so that a remote user can access it. Ensure that the folder that contains the installation packages is shared.
- Log in to Genesys Administrator.
- On the Deployment tab, highlight the Repository into which you want the Installation Packages to be imported.
- Click Repository > Installation Packages > Import.
