When you have successfully completed the Install AIP Console and AIP Node packages step, various configuration steps now need to be worked through in order to complete the deployment process:

Step 1Install additional tools and patches - optional - v. 1.x

Depending on the AIP Console / CAST AIP releases you are using, it may be necessary to perform some additional manual actions not automatically managed by the GUI/CLI installation process.

Step 2Configure AIP Node storage folder locations - optional - v. 1.x

This optional step describes how to change the default storage folder locations for each AIP Node for the following and other items:

  • Delivery
  • Deployment
  • File Upload
  • Backup
  • Sherlock
Step 3Ensure AIP Console and AIP Nodes are running - v. 1.x

This step ensures that the AIP Console and all AIP Nodes are running.

Step 4

Complete start-up wizard - v. 1.x

This step explains the "one-time" start-up wizard which enables you to configure various mandatory settings. 
Step 5Declare AIP Nodes in AIP Console - v. 1.xThe AIP Console front-end package does not yet know about the analysis node(s) (i.e. AIP Node package(s)) that you have installed. Therefore any AIP Nodes that you want to manage in AIP Console must be declared manually as described in this step.
Step 6Determine Extension Strategy - v. 1.xThis step ensures that an "extension strategy" is implemented before the first analyses are run. This strategy can be seen as "controlling mechanisms" to prevent or grant access to any official or custom extensions that have been published by CAST. It is not mandatory to make any changes to the default options, however, CAST does recommend that you evaluate the correct strategy for your own environment.
