Install IDOL on Windows

Use the following procedure to install IDOL on Microsoft Windows operating systems, by using the IDOL Server installer.

The IDOL Server installer provides the major IDOL components. It also includes License Server, which IDOL requires to run.

To install IDOL

  1. Double-click the appropriate installer package:



    VersionNumber is the product version.
    Platform is your software platform.

    The Setup dialog box opens.

  2. Click Next.

    The License Agreement dialog box opens.

  3. Read the license agreement. Select I accept the agreement, and then click Next.

    The Installation Directory dialog box opens.

  4. Specify the directory to install IDOL (and optionally other components such as License Server) in. By default, the system installs on C:\HewlettPackardEnterprise\IDOLServer-VersionNumber. Click to choose another location. Click Next.

    The Installation Mode dialog box opens.

  5. Select Custom, and then click Next.

    The License Server dialog box opens. Choose whether you have an existing License Server.

    The Component Selection dialog box opens.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Select the check boxes for the components that you want to install, and specify the port information for each component, or leave the fields blank to accept the default port settings.

    For each component, you can optionally provide port information to specify the ports that the component must use. The port that you choose must not be used by any other service. The installer allows you to set the following port types:

    ACI Port The port that client machines use to send ACI actions to the component.
    Index Port The port that client machines use to send index actions to the component. This port is available only for the Content, Agentstore, and DIH components.
    Service Port The port that client machines use to send service requests to the component. This port is also the port that the component uses for License Server communication.
    Binary Data Port The port to use for streaming audio data. This port is available only for the IDOL Speech Server component.

    You can also optionally choose to install the components as a Windows service. In this case, select Create Windows service. You can specify a name to use for the service, or accept the default name.

    If you do not want to install the component as a service at installation time, you can choose to add the services later. See Install an IDOL Component as a Service on Windows.

    The following table lists the components and subcomponents that you can install, and the default port that the installer uses if you do not provide an alternative value. You must change the port information if the default port value is already in use.
