Server Installation

This section tells how to install the Deployment Automation server using the Deployment Automation installer.

The server provides services such as the user interface used to configure application deployments, the work flow engine, the security service, and the artifact repository, among others. After installing the server, you must add a license and configure the server according to your implementation needs.

Important: If you are installing the server in a production environment, install and configure the database you intend to use before installing the server. See Preparing Your Database. Otherwise, you can use the built-in Derby database.

You typically install using the interactive installer.

Upgrading Servers

If upgrading the server, use the server installer. The Upgrades section gives more information, including the versions from which you can upgrade directly. See the Release Notes for this version on Documentation Center.
