Summary: this page describes how to perform various actions that may be necessary and not automatically managed by the GUI/CLI installation process.


Due to some constraints with regard to the GUI/CLI installation process for the Console/Node packages, it may be necessary to perform some additional manual actions depending on the Console / AIP Core releases you are using. Each is described below.

Install default discoverers

Note that the patching of the default discoverers is not required if you are using Console ≥ 1.8.x.

Download this ZIP file: (~2.5MB) and unpack the ZIP, which should give you a folder called DMT_Plugins containing various files and folders:

Copy the index.xml file and all folders to the "plugins" folder located in ALL Delivery folders that have been configured. The Delivery folder is configured during the Node installation and there will be one Delivery folder for each Node, therefore you may need to copy the files/folder multiple times. If prompted, ensure you overwrite all files.

Patch the AIP Core installation on each Node with CAST-SourceCodeZipScanner.exe

Note that the patching of CAST-SourceCodeZipScanner.exe is not required (regardless of the release of AIP Core that you are using on your Nodes) if you are using Console ≥ 1.8.x.

The CAST-SourceCodeZipScanner.exe tool is required by Console in each Node (i.e. each installation of AIP Core), however, it is only delivered with AIP Core  8.3.9. Therefore if you are using an older release of AIP Core (≤ 8.3.8) on your Nodes, you will need to copy this file to ALL your Nodes.

  • Download the CAST-SourceCodeZipScanner.exe
  • Copy the file to the tools folder located in the root of each AIP Core installation, typically this is located here:

Ensure correct release of CAST Support Tool (CST) is installed

Note that this step is not required if you are using the following releases of AIP Core with Console:

  • AIP Core 8.3.8 - 8.3.12
  • AIP Core ≥ 8.3.16

The CAST Support Tool (CST) is used by Console for backing up data and configuration options for CAST Support. The tool is delivered with AIP Core and is therefore pre-installed on each Node, however, if you are using AIP Core 8.3.0 - 8.3.7 or AIP Core 8.3.13 - 8.3.15, please patch the tool:

Download the latest available ZIP from Unpack the ZIP, which should give you a folder containing various files:

Copy all files in this folder to the following location. If you have multiple Nodes, you will need to repeat this action for each Node. If prompted, ensure you overwrite all files.
