Installing IBM Endpoint Manager v9

I’ve recently needed a second infrastructure, but I don’t like it when it’s easy.  So I’ve decided to setup a Windows Server 2012 and use the latest IBM EM v9.  Below is the step-by-step screen shots of this the IEM installation.  I won’t be describing every screen… only those which are decision points that required additional considerations.

IEM_v9_Install_02

This will be an all-in-one server… which means the root server as well as web reports will be installed onto the same server.  However I will be using MSSQL 2012 on a separate database server.

IEM_v9_Install_05

This will be a separate and independent infrastructure… so Single or Master Database is the selection here.

IEM_v9_Install_06

I will be using an external MSSQL server… so that is specified here.

IEM_v9_Install_07

And the details for connecting to that MSSQL server is specified here.

IEM_v9_Install_08

IEM_v9_Install_09

IEM_v9_Install_10

I don’t want to change any of these details… defaults here is fine considering how small my infrastructure is (5-20 endpoints). If your infrastructure is significantly larger… than consider deviating from these defaults.

IEM_v9_Install_12

IEM_v9_Install_13

IEM_v9_Install_14

IEM_v9_Install_15

IEM_v9_Install_16

IEM_v9_Install_17

IEM_v9_Install_18

I do need to specify the first user account.  Later in the infrastructure setup, I will be linking to an LDAP server.. but I still require a user to get that setup. 

IEM_v9_Install_19

IEM_v9_Install_20

IEM_v9_Install_21

IEM_v9_Install_22

Pulling up the full interface will tell me what I already know… MSSQL is not installed on the local server nor is the BES Client.

IEM_v9_Install_23

The infrastructure is installed at this point, but I will want to reconfigure services and settings.  Look for a future article which will cover this.
