Running Ivanti® Endpoint Manager setup

Before installing Endpoint Manager, make sure the server you've chosen meets the system requirements described earlier in this section. The following steps install Endpoint Manager with the default Microsoft SQL Express database. If you'll be using one of the other supported databases, you need to install and configure that database before running Endpoint Manager setup. For detailed instructions on doing this and installing Endpoint Manager, refer to the Ivanti User Community at

For release notes, installation instructions, and important additional information, make sure you visit the Ivanti® Endpoint Manager2022 announcement page on the Ivanti Community:

For more information on supported platforms and system requirements, see this document in the Ivanti user community:

The Indexing service and Windows Search service must both be disabled prior to installation of Ivanti® Endpoint Manager; failure to disable these services could cause the installation to fail.

Also make sure that the server you're installing to doesn't have Microsoft's Windows Server Update Service installed on it. If this service is active you will have problems logging into the console.

Because each environment has different needs, we recommended that you contact Ivanti Professional Services, your reseller, or your Expert Solution Provider (ESP) about Certified Ivanti Deployment.

Endpoint Manager setup will open ports in the Windows Firewall on the core server. Nomally, Endpoint Manager setup and agent configuration will configure these ports automatically. If you're using a different firewall, you will need to configure the ports manually. For more information on the ports Endpoint Manager uses, see the following Community article:
