Before installing Reflection for the Web 12.3, be sure that:

  • Your version of Management and Security Server is 12.2 or higher. You can use an existing installation or use the Reflection for the Web automated installer to install version 12.3.

  • Any Reflection for the Web or Management and Security Server component currently running is shut down. (If an earlier version was installed with an automated installer, the 12.3 automated installer will close the components for you.)

  • The necessary account permissions to install components on the target server are available.

    If you plan to use X.509 client certificates or secure LDAP access control, make sure the account used to run the Administrative Server has permission to write to the Java SDK certificate authority certificates file (cacerts). The default location in Windows is:

    C:\Program Files\ Micro Focus\MSS\jre\lib\security

    Note: If you are upgrading, the Windows location remains

    C:\Program Files\Attachmate\ReflectionServer\jre\lib\security

Note: Optional components, including Metering Server, Security Proxy Server, and Terminal ID Manager can be installed along with Reflection for the Web or added later.
