Ivanti Voice has two installation wizards:
•Server Installation - Run this installation wizard once on the Ivanti Voice host computer. Installs the Ivanti Voice server and has options for installing integrations with HEAT, Foundation (ITSM, CSM, and GMEE), GoldMine, and SaaS integrations, all operating from a central server.
•Client Installation - Run this installation wizard on client computers in your Ivanti Voice network. Do not run the Client installation wizard on the Ivanti Voice server host computer, since the Server installation wizard allows you to install all of the client components.
You can also create a .bat file to use for an unattended installation on end-user workstations. Refer to the "Unattended Client Installation" section for details.
Since you will not be specifying licensing info during the installation, Ivanti Voice runs in demonstration mode. The license file can be configured later, subsequent to the installation - refer to the online help topic "Host Configuration: License File Management."
- For installation on the Windows 2012 server, updates would be required in sequential order, the details of which are given at the following URL: http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/137874-install-windows-server-2012-r2-update-1-kb2919355
- For installation on Windows 7, the “Update for Microsoft Windows” set would be required up to KB3184143.
- For the Windows 2016 server and Windows 10, no specific prerequisites are required.
The server installation installs the Ivanti Voice server (on the Ivanti Voice host computer) and has options for installing HEAT, Foundation (ITSM, CSM, and GMEE), GoldMine, and SaaS integrations, all operating from a central server.
Ivanti Voice uses a SQL Server database for storing information such as statistical values and interaction data. Ivanti Voice supports all editions of SQL Server 2005 or later. As indicated in the system requirements (refer to Preparation), MS SQL Server 2008 is recommended.
Microsoft SQL Server Setup
Install and configure Microsoft SQL Server prior to installing Ivanti Voice.
This installation chapter only discusses instructions specific to the Ivanti Voice database setup, and assumes readers are expert-level SQL Server users. For details on specific SQL tasks, refer to the Microsoft documentation.
If you are installing Ivanti Voice on a SQL server other than the included MSDE version, you will also need to create a database for Ivanti Voice. Note that Windows Authentication is not supported.
This installation procedure presumes you have already created an empty database (generally referred to as a database shell), and that database logon credentials have been created.
To Run the Server Installation Wizard:
1.Verify that the target computer meets or exceeds the system requirements.
2.Exit all programs running on your system.
3.Double-click the IPCMServer.exe file.
4.Before the Ivanti Voice installation wizard opens, you will be asked to install Microsoft XML 4.0 and Microsoft Visual C++ 2008. Click OK.
5.When complete, the IP Communications Management Server - InstallShield Wizard dialog box opens.
6.Click Next. The License Agreement dialog box opens.
If you are using Windows Server 2008, and have not yet installed Desktop Experience, you will see a prompt stating that Desktop Experience must be installed before proceeding with the Ivanti Voice installation. Click OK to close the message dialog box, then click Finish to close the wizard. Install Desktop Experience, then double-click the IPCMServer.exe file to start the installation wizard.
7.Review the licensing information and click the I accept radio button and check boxes if you agree to the terms.

Unattended Client Installation
With an unattended installation, you can run the installation wizard in silent mode, with no user interface displaying and no interaction required by the user. An unattended installation is especially useful when deploying a large number of clients.
- Create a new directory on the client computer to contain the client .exe file and a .bat file you will create; for example, C:\Silent.
- Place the IPCMClient.exe on the new directory.
- Create a .bat file in the same directory with following information:
IPCMClient.exe /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=\"C:\Program Files\FrontRange Solutions\" ADDLOCAL=ALL IPCM_SERVER=<name_of_IPCM_server>
•/s = silent mode
For some newer operating systems, you may need to use /silent.
•/v = pass arguments to msiexec
•/qn = no user interface
•INSTALLDIR = path to the installation folder
•ADDLOCAL = list of features to install (Root,Client,Agent,Manag,Stat)
Inclusion of the Root feature is mandatory.
•ALL = for full installation
•Client = install Ivanti Voice Communicator
•Agent = install the Agent Dashboard
•Manag = install Management Console
•Stat = install Statistics Console
If installing the Integration with Foundation option, the .bat file should specify the Foundation version. For example:
IPCMClient.exe /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=\"C:\Program Files\FrontRange Solutions\" ADDLOCAL=ALL ITSM=ITSM70 IPCM_SERVER=<name_of_IPCM_server>
12.Run the .bat file. The Ivanti Voice client is installed at C:\Program Files\FrontRange Solutions (or in the directory you specified).
The Management Portal is a browser-based interface that provides the system administrator with access to the following:
Agents/Skills/Services - Configure agents, skills and skill groups, routing rules, services, and agent Not Ready reasons.

User Account - Configure and manage users, the Global Address Book, Unified Messaging, and user roles.
Log Viewer - View log messages containing data about server events.
Quality Management - Configure Quality Management functionality, including scheduled conversation recordings and recording rating criteria.
Reporting - View historical reports, interactions (including agent recordings), application reports, and instant messaging reports.
System Configuration - Configure the Ivanti Voice servers and host computer.
SIP Soft Switch State - Monitor the current state of active calls, call history, DNs, and gateways.
To Open the Management Portal:
1.Click Start > Programs > Ivanti > Communications Management > Management Portal.
The Enter Network Password dialog box opens.
2.Type your User Name and Password. The defaults are:
•user name = admin
•password = password
3.Click OK. The Management Portal menu page opens, displaying eight options. Click the desired option.
A navigation menu comprised of icons appears at the top of each page in the Management Portal.
•Move your mouse cursor over each icon to see the page that corresponds to that icon.
•Click an icon to advance to the desired page.
•Click the ISM IP Communications Management logo to return to the Management Portal menu page.
When you enter or edit data on the Management Portal, Ivanti Voice does not always apply those changes immediately (in some fields the text turns red indicating the changes are not applied). Use the following buttons to have your changes take effect:
•Update - Applies changes to the current screen, enabling you to go to another Management Portal screen without losing your changes. When you apply a change, the text changes to black if it was red.
•Commit Changes - Saves applied changes and immediately enacts those changes in Ivanti Voice. The Commit Changes button appears after you click an Update button. Once you click the Commit Changes button, you can close the Management Portal without losing your changes as long as you first clicked the Update button associated with the fields or forms you changed. If you edit multiple forms or multiple pages, you must click the Update buttons associated with each edited form before you click the Commit Changes button. (In the SIP Soft Switch configuration pages, this button will not appear; all SIP Soft Switch configuration changes are auto-committed.)
You cannot restore previous settings once you click the Commit Changes button. If you have not clicked the Commit Changes button and you want to discard your changes, use the Discard Changes button to revert edited fields and forms to the previous values.
