Other prerequisites

Database

Component prerequisites

Microsoft SQL Server

Agents

  • No active Windows Firewall. Disabling the Firewall may be considered a security risk. Alternatively, you can:
    • Enable File and Printer Sharing for the required profile from the Advanced Sharing Settings in the Network and Sharing Center.
    • Enable the File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In) Firewall rule for the required profile.
  • Remote Registry service enabled.
  • Simple File Sharing (or Use Sharing Wizard) disabled.
  • IPC$ enabled.

Microsoft Azure SQL

Consoles and Dispatchers

  • Microsoft SQL Server Native Client

Oracle

Consoles and Dispatchers

  • Oracle OLEDB provider
  • On 64-bit machines, install the 64-bit driver for Dispatchers; install the 32-bit driver for Consoles. Because it is not possible to install a 64-bit driver and a 32-bit driver on the same 64-bit machine, it is not possible to use a Dispatcher and a Console on the same 64-bit machine.

IBM DB2

Consoles and Dispatchers

  • IBM DB2 OLEDB provider

MySQL

Consoles and Dispatchers

  • MYSQL ODBC Driver
  • On 64-bit machines, install the 64-bit driver for Dispatchers; install the 32-bit driver for Consoles. Both driver versions need to be installed if a Dispatcher and a Console are running on the same 64-bit machine.
  • When deploying components from the Console on machines running Microsoft Windows Vista or higher, disable the User Account Control feature, as this feature does not support silent installations.
  • The deployment of Dispatchers on 64-bit machines requires the installation of the 64-bit version of the necessary database drivers on these machines. The other components of Ivanti Automation use the 32-bit version of these database drivers. If it is not possible to use both versions on the same 64-bit machine simultaneously, it is not possible to use a Console and a Dispatcher on this machine that both point to the same Datastore.
  • If you want to deploy a Console or a Dispatcher manually and your environment connects to a Microsoft SQL Server-based Datastore using Windows Authentication, provide the parameters scuser and scpassword to specify the server account credentials during installation. This must be the same service account credentials as you specified in the Ivanti Automation Console.

You can use Ivanti Automation to install the database drivers on computers to which a Dispatcher or Console needs to be deployed:

  1. Manually install the appropriate database driver on a computer.
  2. Deploy a Dispatcher on this computer.
  3. Deploy an Agent on all computers on which you want to deploy a Console or Dispatcher.
  4. Install the database driver on the target computers using the Task Invoke Windows Installer or Perform Unattended Installation.
  5. Deploy Dispatchers on these computers.
  6. Optionally, remove the Agents from these computers.

You can also use this method to migrate an existing Ivanti Automation environment from an SQL database to a MySQL, Oracle or DB2 database. Before you do this, create a Building Block of your Library as a backup.
