    After the update is complete, click Do not enable automatic updates.


    What to Do Next

    If Microsoft Windows Server installs Internet Explorer 8, you must upgrade to Internet Explorer 9.

    Install Microsoft SQL Server 2008

    Install Microsoft SQL Server and store the SQL Server log and temporary files on the same physical disk as the operating system (the C drive). Use the secondary drive to store the Logger database (the E drive).

    Procedure
      Step 1   Mount the Microsoft SQL Server ISO image to the virtual machine. See Mount and Unmount ISO Files.
      Step 2   Run setup.exe.
      Step 3   Select Installation on the left pane and then click New installation or add features to an existing installation. Click OK.
      Step 4   On the Product Key page, enter the product key and click Next.
      Step 5   Accept the License Terms and click Next. Click Install on the Setup Support Rules page.
      Step 6   On the Setup Support Rules page, click Next.
      Step 7   On the Setup Role page, select SQL Server Feature Installation. Then click Next.
      Step 8   On the Feature Selection page, select only the following:
      1. Database Engine Services
      2. Client Tools Connectivity
      3. SQL Server Books Online
      4. Management Tools - Basic
      5. Management Tools - Complete
      6. SQL Client Connectivity SDK
      Step 9   On the Installation Rules page, click Next.
      Step 10   On the Instance Configuration page, select Default Instance . Click Next.
      Step 11   On the Disk Space Requirements page, click Next.
      Step 12   On Server Configuration page, select the Services Account tab.
      1. For Service SQL Server Agent, select Account Name NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM and Startup Type Automatic.
      2. For Service SQL Server Database Engine. select Account Name NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM.
      Step 13   Remain on the Server Configuration page and select the Collation tab.
      1. Click Customize for Database Engine.
      2. Check the radio button Windows Collation designator and sort order.
      3. Select the appropriate collation. Typically, you should choose the SQL Server collation that supports the Windows system locale most commonly used at by the customer organization; for example, Latin1_General and BIN for English.

        IMPORTANT: It is critical to select the correct collation setting for the customer's language display. If you do not select the correct collation during installation, the customer will need to uninstall and re-install Microsoft SQL Server.

        The collation you select affects what can be written to the database. For example, if you set the collation for Latin1_General and a user at the customer site selects Chinese as his language selection at sign-in and enters field values in Chinese, the application will return an unsupported characters error as the database will be unable to handle the characters.

      4. Click OK. Click Next on the Server Configuration page.
      5. Click Next.
      Step 14   On the Database Engine Configuration page:

      3. Click Add Current User.
      4. ClickNext.
      Step 15   On the Analysis Services configuration page, click Add current user. Then click Next.
      Step 16   On the Reporting Server configuration, check the radio button for Install but do not configure the report server. Click Next.
      Step 17   Click Next on the Error reporting page.
      Step 18   Click Next on the Installation Configuration Rules page.
      Step 19   Click Install on the Ready to Install page.

      This enables autogrowth for tempdb. You must also enable it for the awdb database on Side A, the awdb database on Side B, the baA database on Side A if Outbound is installed, and any external hds databases, after they are installed. Refer to Configure Autogrowth.

      Step 24   Reserve the memory to be used by SQL Server as follows:
      1. From the SQL Server Management Studio, right-click the server and select Properties.
      2. Click Memory.
      3. Set the Maximum server memory (in MB) to 4096. Click OK.
      Step 25   Restart the SQL Server service by selecting Start > All Programs > Administrative Tool > Services. Right-click SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) and select Stop. Right click it again and select Start.
      Step 26   Ensure that the SQL Server Browser is started:

                  What to Do Next

                  Remember:

                  For Finesse only, you must disable the Cisco Security Agent (CSA) before you configure the cluster and add the secondary node. To do this, from the Finesse VM on Side A, access the Command Line Interface and enter the command utils csa disable. Reboot when prompted.

                  After installing the publisher/primary node, you must configure the cluster to make the publisher/primary nodes aware of the subscriber/secondary nodes.

                      Configure the Cluster for Cisco Finesse

                      Procedure
                        Step 1   Launch the Cisco Finesse primary node in a browser (http://Primary Node IP Address/cfadmin), where the Primary Node or IP Address is that of your host.
                        Step 2   Go to Home > Cluster Settings. (This is based on the default configuration and assumes you have not changed the page for the Cluster Settings gadget.)
                        Step 3   Add the IP address for the Cisco Finesse secondary node.
                        Step 4   Click Submit.
