Installing the Metrics Reporting Server
Install the Metrics Reporting Server by using the installation package that was created from the Download Manager application.
Before You Begin
Prepare your environment by reviewing the following tasks:
- Verify that the installation package that was created from the Download Manager includes the Metrics Reporting Server software. If missing, create a new installation package and include the software. For instructions, see Downloading Software for Windows Computers Using the Download Manager.
- Review SnapProtect requirements and gather the information that you must provide during the installation. For more information, see Preinstallation Checklist for Metrics Reporting Server.
- If you plan to install the Metrics Reporting database on an existing Microsoft SQL Server instance, see Configuring an Existing SQL Instance for Server Packages.
- Log on to the computer as an Administrator or as a member of the Administrator group on that computer.
- Run Setup.exe from the installation package.
The installation wizard opens.
- On the welcome page, select the I Agree check box and proceed to the next page.
- On the Choose the Installation Type page, click Install packages on this computer and proceed to the next page.
- On the Select Packages page, select the Metrics Reporting check box, and proceed to the next page.
- Follow the instructions in the installation wizard.
Tip: To help you troubleshoot errors that occur before the installation summary page, check the %allusersprofile%\Commvault Systems\Galaxy\LogFiles\Install.log. If the error occurs after the summary page, check the installation logs in the Software_Installation_Directory\Log Files directory.
