This article describes how to download the AppAssure 5 Core and then how to install the Core onto a dedicated server.
Because the AppAssure 5 Core stores and manages the backups of all protected machines in your environment, you should install the AppAssure 5 Core on a dedicated server. Depending on your license and your environment requirements, you may need to install multiple cores.
To install the AppAssure 5 Core, you must log on to the AppAssure 5 License Portal at https://licenseportal.com and register for an account, and then download the installer and obtain a license key to activate the software.
After you install the AppAssure 5 Core, you can download the AppAssure 5 Agent installer from the Core or the license portal for every machine that will be protected by the Core. For more information about the AppAssure 5 Agent installer, see the online knowledge base article, “Downloading and Installing the AppAssure 5 Agent” or the AppAssure 5 User Guide.
NOTE: The AppAssure 5 Core cannot be installed on the Windows Core version. The AppAssure 5 Core requires a 64-bit Windows platform; 32-bit systems and Linux systems are not supported. On Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems, you must have the ASP.NET 4.5 role installed on the server. If you do not have the role installed, the GUI will not load correctly.
