The Deployment Automation interactive server installer uses a wizard that guides you through the installation process.
The properties set during the server installation are recorded in the installed.properties file located in the server_install\conf\server directory.
For a quick default server installation, enter the installer wizard panel information as follows:
Your server installation is now complete.
For full installation and configuration details, see the Deployment Automation User's Guide on the Documentation Center.
The installer installs Deployment Automation under the application server and starts the service automatically.
To start or stop the server service:
Use Administrative Tools > Services to start or stop Common Tomcat.
You must install at least one agent for a basic installation.
Multiple Agents on Multiple Machines
If you plan to run deployments on several machines, a separate agent with a unique name should be installed on each machine. If, for example, your testing environment consists of three machines, install an agent on each one. Follow the same procedure for each environment the application uses.
Multiple Agents on One Machine
If you plan to install multiple agents on a single machine, make sure that all names are unique: installation directory name, agent name, and service name, if running the agent as a service.
The interactive agent installer uses a wizard that guides you through the installation process.
Run the following installer executable as a Windows local system user:
The agent installer installs the agent service, but does not start the service. It is set to manual start by default.
To stop or start an agent service:
Use Administrative Tools > Services to start or stop the agent, DA-Agent.
After you have completed at minimum a server installation, you can login to the user interface to begin configuring Deployment Automation.
To access the Deployment Automation user interface:
http://serverName:port/da/Use the host name and port for the application server where you installed Deployment Automation. The default port is 8080 for Common Tomcat.
Deployment Automation includes several standard plugins that are available when you install. Many additional plugins are available for you to download and use for your specific needs. Plugins can be installed, or loaded, at any time, directly from the Deployment Automation user interface.
After you have downloaded a plugin, you can load it so that it becomes available to use in the Process Editor.
To load a plugin:
After the plugin load process completes successfully, when you are designing processes for components, the plugin is listed in the Process Editor on the Automation Plugins pane. Once loaded, plugin functionality is available immediately.
