Installing and Configuring Enterprise Reporter

Installing Enterprise Reporter

Once you have determined where you will deploy Enterprise Reporter and have ensured that your computers meet the system requirements, you are ready to install the Enterprise Reporter server and consoles. During the installation process, you can choose whether to install all components on the same computer or on separate computers.

After this initial installation process is complete, you will need to create the Enterprise Reporter database. The Enterprise Reporter database can be created and configured automatically during the installation, or can be set up later using the Enterprise Reporter Database Wizard utility.

If you have an existing Enterprise Reporter installation and are creating another database with the same version, you can transfer your Enterprise Reporter configuration information (clusters and nodes, discoveries, and reports) using the Database Content Wizard. For more information, see Appendix: Database Content Wizard .

If necessary, you can install additional consoles for other users.
