This section describes how to use the graphical installer mode to install Network Configuration Manager. When installing Network Configuration Manager, the servers must be installed in the following order:

  • Stand-alone Database server (if applicable)

  • Combination server or Application server

  • Device server (if applicable)

    The installation must be repeated for each server. If you are installing a distributed server configuration with separate Database server, Application server and Device servers, then:

  • You must first install Network Configuration Manager on the Database server, followed by installation on the Application server, and then install on the Device server.


    At setup, the Device server registers itself with the Application server. Before installing the Device servers, ensure its corresponding Application server has the same date and time as the candidate Device server. If not, the Device server cannot communicate with the Application server resulting in the installation failure.
