ARM Configuration Wizard
Before you can use ARM, you need to complete the Configuration Wizard. The Configuration Wizard collects required information for the base configuration and for the first Active Directory scan and the first file server scan. Any information collected by the Configuration Wizard can be changed later in the configuration application.
After completing the setup the Configuration Wizard launches. At first you have to log in to the Configuration.
The Basic Configuration
After you have logged in, the Configuration Wizard will ask you to do the following:
- Define the credentials with which the ARM Server will use to run Active Directory requests.
- Define the SQL Server database that ARM will use, along with the required credentials.
The ARM service will be restarted to use the given credentials. This will take a while and a warning will be displayed, that the configuration application is not connected. This is the normal behavior. Please be patient.
After a production installation you will have to enter the SQL server connection information and we also recommend to use a service account for connecting to Active Directory. Please refer to the Administrator Guide for detailed information.
Set up your first Active Directory scan
Set up your first file server scan
If your scans completed succesfully, you are ready to start using ARM.
