Installing the Central Monitoring Service

To install the Central Monitoring Service

  1. Run the PA Storage Monitor setup program. The License Agreement page appears.

    Note: If this is an update from a previous version, the installation stops the existing service.

  2. Select the I accept the agreement option, and then click Next. The Select Destination Location page appears.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Accept the default folder path.
    • Enter a new folder path in the box. You can click Browse to display a standard Windows browse window, and then navigate to your destination folder.
  4. Click Next. The Select Components page appears.
  5. Accept the defaults for a typical installation. You can select the components individually, or you can click the arrow, and then select an installation from the list. For a first installation, choose the default "Typical installation" with a monitoring service and console.
  6. Click Next. The Select Additional Tasks page appears.
  7. Select the Create a desktop icon option if you want the installation to place an icon on your desktop.
  8. Select the SQL Server Native Client library option if you want to use Microsoft SQL Server as your backend database. You can leave this unchecked if you are not sure at this point -- this can be added later.
  9. Click Next. The Ready to Install page appears.
  10. Click Install. The Installing page appears. When the installation has finished, the Completing the PA Storage Monitor Setup Wizard page appears.
  11. Specify whether you want to start the PA Storage Monitor Service or launch the PA Storage Monitor Console by selecting its option, and then click Finish. If you have selected the option to launch the console, the PA Storage Monitor Console window appears.
