This article reviews the steps required to perform the task of deploying an Opalis Integration Server Client without using the Opalis Integration Server Deployment Manager.

Circumstances where manual deployment may be required:

  • Firewall exists between Management Server and Action Server that blocks RPC based traffic required for Deployment Manager use.
  • Management Server and Action Server are on machines that are in workgroups rather than domains and do not share a common user account/password for administrative rights.
  • Unattended deployment.

More Information

1. Copy the following files from Management Server machine to some folder on the machine where Action Server will be installed:

  • OpalisIntegrationServer_Client.msi from <Management Server installation location>\Components\Client\.
  • OpalisIntegrationServer_FoundationObjects.msi from <Management Server installation location>\Components\Objects\.
  • Any Integration Packs that need to be installed from <Management Server installation location>\Components\Objects\.

By default the Management Server is installed on <%SystemDrive%>:\Program Files\Opalis Software\Opalis Integration Server\Management Service

2. From the machine where the Client will be installed, run the following command:

    msiexec.exe /i "<location>\OpalisIntegrationServer_Client.msi" /qn ALLUSERS=1

3. On the same machine, run the following command to install the Foundation Objects:

    msiexec.exe /i "<location>\OpalisIntegrationServer_FoundationObjects.msi" /qn ALLUSERS=1
4. On the same machine, run the following command for each desired Integration Pack to install that Integration Pack (note: Integration Packs must still be registered with the Management Server using Opalis Integration Server Deployment Manager before completing the installation step manually):

    msiexec.exe /i "<location>\IntegrationPackInstallationPackage.msi" /qn ALLUSERS=1

5. From the Start Menu, select "Programs->Opalis Software->Opalis Integration Server->Opalis Integration Server Client" to launch the Client.
