Install Find with the Interactive Installer (Recommended)

Use the following procedure to install Find on Windows or Linux by using the interactive installer.

To install Find

Find is installed at the location you specify. Find is available on your machine as a service named HPEFind, which you can start and stop from the Windows services manager.


By default, the installer stores the Find home directory in the ProgramData folder, which might be hidden by default in Windows.

Before you start Find, follow the steps in Run Initial Find Configuration, and ensure that you have set up the required user roles in IDOL Community. A user must be a member of at least the FindUser role to log into Find. See User Roles for more information.
