2.1 Prerequisite Installation Tasks

Before you install the application, complete the following prerequisite tasks and review the installation considerations:

  • Review the Release Notes. The Release Notes contain a description of system requirements, supported operating systems, and a list of issues that are known to exist with this release of the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager.
  • Verify that your system meets the software and hardware requirements that are needed to install the application.
  • Verify that your Windows account has administrator privileges or any other equal privileges to install software on the computers where you plan to install CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager.
  • Verify that you have the user names and passwords of the computers where you are installing the application in your possession.
  • Verify that the server where you install CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager and the nodes where you want to deploy policies can communicate with each other using their host names. To verify that the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager servers and nodes can communicate with each other, do the following:
    • From the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager server, ping the nodes using the host names of the nodes.
    • From the nodes that you want to protect, ping the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager server using the host name of the server
  • CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager lets you install CA ARCserve D2D r16 and upgrade CA ARCserve D2D r15 to CA ARCserve D2D r16 on remote nodes using the Deploy utility. To back up data on the remote nodes using CA ARCserve D2D r16, you must obtain CA ARCserve D2D r16 licenses and apply the licenses on the nodes. If you do not apply the licenses within 31 days of the date that you installed or upgraded to CA ARCserve D2D r16 on the nodes, CA ARCserve D2D will stop working.
  • The CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager installation media contains Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition, which is the minimum database application that is required to support the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager database. If you want to use Microsoft SQL Server to support the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager database, install Microsoft SQL Server on the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager server or a remote server before you install CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager. If the installation routine detects a version of Microsoft SQL Server that is not supported, the installation routine fails. For more information about the supported versions of Microsoft SQL Server, see the Release Notes.

Installation Considerations

Before you install CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager, review the following installation considerations:

  • The CA ARCserve Central Applications installation package installs a module named CA ARCserve Central Applications Server. The server is a module that is common to all applications. The module contains the web service, binaries, and configurations that let the application communicate with each other.

    When you install the application, the installation package installs the CA ARCserve Central Applications Server module before installing the product components. If it becomes necessary to apply a patch to the application, the patch updates the module before updating the product components.

  • When you deploy CA ARCserve D2D to remote nodes, CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager installs VMware Virtual Disk Development Kit (VDDK) 1.2.1 on the target nodes. The CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager installation media includes the setup files that are required to install VMware Virtual Disk Development Kit (VDDK) 1.2.1 on the CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager server and on the target node. Therefore, you do not need to download the VDDK setup files from the VMware website to deploy CA ARCserve D2D to remote nodes.

2.2 Install CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager

The installation wizard helps guide you through the process of installing one or more CA ARCserve Central Applications.

Note: Before you install an application, review the Release Notes file and verify that all of the tasks described in Prerequisite Tasks are complete.

Follow these steps:

  1. Download the CA ARCserve Central Applications installation package to the computer where you want to install the application, and then double-click the Setup file.

    The installation package extracts its contents to your computer and then the Prerequisite Components dialog opens.

  2. Click Install on the Prerequisites Components dialog.

    Note: The Prerequisite Components dialog opens only if Setup does not detect that the required prerequisite components are installed on your computer.

    After Setup installs the prerequisite components, the License Agreement dialog opens.

  3. Complete the required options on the License Agreement dialog and click Next.

    The Configuration dialog opens.

  4. On the Configuration dialog, complete the following:
    • Components--Specify the applications that you want to install.

      Note: If you are installing this application using the suite installation package, you can install multiple applications.

    • Location--Accept the default installation location or click Browse to specify an alternative installation location. The default location is as follows:
      
      C:\Program Files\CA\ARCserve Central Applications
    • Disk Information-- Verify that your hard drive has sufficient free disk space to install the applications.
    • Windows Administrator Name--Specify the user name of the Windows Administrator account using the following syntax:
      
      Domain\User Name
      
      
    • Password--Specify the password for the user account.
    • Specify Port Number--Specify the port number that you want to use to communicate with the web-based user interface. As a best practice, you should accept the default port number. The default port number is as follows:
      
      8015
      
      

      Note: If you want to specify an alternative port number, the available port numbers are from 1024 through 65535. Before you specify an alternative port number, verify that the specified port number is free and available for use. Setup prevents you from installing the application using a port that is not available for use.

    • Use HTTPS for web communication--Specify to use HTTPS communication for data transmission. By default, this is not selected.

      Note: HTTPS (secure) communication provides a higher level of security than HTTP communication. HTTPS is recommended communication protocol if you transmit confidential information in your network.

    • Allow Setup to register CA ARCserve Central Applications services and programs to the Windows Firewall as exceptions--Verify that the check box next to this option is selected. Firewall exceptions are required if you want to configure and manage CA ARCserve Central Applications from remote computers.

      Note: For local users, you do not need to register firewall exceptions.

    Click Next.

    The Database Settings dialog opens.

  5. On the Database Settings dialog, click the drop-down list next to Choose a database type and specify one of the following.
    • ARCserve Central Applications Default Database
    • Microsoft SQL Server

    After you specify a type of database, the required options for the specified database appear on the Database Settings dialog.

  6. Do one of the following:
    • ARCserve Central Applications Default Database--Complete the following fields on the Database Settings dialog:

      • Specify the Data File Path--Specify the location where you want to install the data file for the CA ARCserve Central Applications default database. You can accept the default path or specify an alternative path.

      Note: The CA ARCserve Central Applications default database does not support remote communication. Therefore, install the default database and the data file on the computer where you are installing the application.

    • Microsoft SQL Server Databases--Complete the following fields on the Database Settings dialog:
      • SQL Server Type--Specify the type of communication that the application is to use to communicate with the SQL Server database.

        Local: Specify Local when the application and SQL Server are installed on the same computer.

        Remote: Specify Remote when the application and SQL Server are installed on different computers.

      • SQL Server Name--If the SQL Server Type specified is Remote, specify the remote SQL Server name. If the SQL Server is used locally, select the server from the drop-down list.
      • Security--Specify the type of credentials that you want to use to authenticate with SQL Server.

        Use Windows Security--Specify Use Windows Security to authenticate using your Windows credentials.

        Use SQL Server Security--Specify Use SQL Server Security to authenticate using SQL Server credentials. Then specify the Login ID and Password for the SQL Server account.

      • Overwrite existing database--Specify Overwrite database if you want to allow Setup to detect and overwrite existing CA ARCserve Central Applications database.

    Click Install.

    After the installation process is complete, the Installation Report dialog opens.
