Installing Stat

This guide documents the steps necessary to install Quest® Stat® version 6.3.0 on either an Oracle® or a Microsoft® SQL Server® database. The guide is divided into the following sections.

The sections are listed in the order that they need to be performed. The Stat Installation CD contains the scripts that are used to build the Stat database. A new database must exist in order to do configurations.

This document assumes the user has a working knowledge of Stat and access to the user manuals, especially Stat System Administration Guide. The section Configure the Stat Database assumes that data is being created in the new Stat database. However, the instructions could be applied to any Stat database.

Prepare for installation

The Stat® Client can be installed as a local installation.
Oracle: Oracle client connectivity, compatible to the database version, on all workstations.
SQL Server®: SQL Server client connectivity, compatible to the database version, on all workstations.
