Steps to Install CSM
The installation steps vary depending on which installations are run (Server, CSM Web Applications, and Client), whether it is a new installation or an upgrade, and whether Auto-Deploy is used.
Using a proxy server during configuration is not supported or recommended. Proxy servers can change request headers and cache information, both of which can cause unknown and unexpected issues with the CSM Client Applications and CSM Web Applications.
