3.1.2 Step 2: Enter configuration information.

If you are installing Management and Security Server for the first time on this machine, the automated installer starts the Initial Configuration Utility. For a description, see Initial Configuration Utility.

NOTE:Do not close the installer when the configuration utility is launched. You must complete additional steps in the installer after completing configuration.

Enter or verify your configuration information. Refer to Ports used by Management and Security Server as needed.

  1. Installation Directory: Confirm or browse to the location where the Administrative Server was installed.

  2. MSS Server Services: Select the services you want to enable. You must have an MSS Server service running on one machine at your site. If entitled, you can optionally choose to install the Security Proxy server.

  3. Volume Purchase Agreement number: Optional. Enter the Volume Purchase Agreement (VPA) number. You can modify the VPA number later in the MSS Administrative Console.

  4. Servlet runner ports: Accept the default entries or enter the port numbers that the servlet runner will use for HTTP and HTTPS connections.

    The default port number for HTTP is 80, and the default for HTTPS is 443.

  5. Security Proxy server ports: If you are installing the Security Proxy, specify the port numbers for the Security Proxy. The default listening port is 3000. The default monitor port is 8080. You can change Security Proxy settings after installation using the Security Proxy Wizard.

  6. Administration password: Enter a password. Use this password to open the MSS Administrative Console and to administer Metering and Terminal ID management (if installed). You can create different passwords for each server later.

    Note: To change the administrative password later, use the MSS Administrative Console (Configure Settings - General Security).

  7. Server Names for URLs and Certificates: The information that you enter on this and the following panel enable you to create self-signed certificates that will be used to make secure TLS connections to the Administrative Server and Security Proxy after installation.

    Enter a DNS name or IP address. The current DNS name is provided, when available. To change the servlet runner certificate later, use the HTTPS Certificate Utility.

  8. Server certificates: organization and locality (optional)

    This panel includes additional information for creating certificates.
