Installing the Database

The Ivanti Device and Application Control database is the first component that you install. The database serves as the central repository for device permissions rules and executable file authorizations.

Prerequisites:

Important: For installation or upgrade to Ivanti Device and Application Control version 5.2:

  • You must have a valid license file that is issued specifically for version 4.5 or later. Confirm that you have the required license file available before you begin installation.
  • License files issued before Ivanti Device and Application Control version 4.5 will not work with the Application Server and may cause your Application Servers to stop working.
  • The Ivanti Device and Application Control 4.5 license must be installed before you install or upgrade the Ivanti Device and Application Control database, and then the Application Server.
  • Request a new license file using the Downloads tab on the Self-Service Portal.

Caution: When installing SQL server updates, ensure SQL server restarts properly as this may prevent SXS server from starting as the database will be unavailable.
