3.2 Installing the iManager

You can install the iManager using either a standard EXE file or by silent installation.

Installation Method


See User Guide

Installer EXE

Standard installation performed individually on each iManager computer from a distribution EXE file. The EXE is available on CD or via download from Tridia.

You choose configuration options on dialog boxes during the install.

Section 3.2

Silent Installation

Automates the standard installation via a recorded response file.

You run the installer EXE once and record all dialog box choices. You then play back the install by entering a single command on each iManager computer.

Appendix: Using Silent Install

3.3 Optimizing the iManager Display in Large Deployments

In large deployments, with as many as 1000 connections, it can take significant time for the iManager to download and display all of the connections in the left-hand pane.

One means of preventing this problem is the deployment of support domains, as explained in Section 1.3 of this guide. Proper configuration of support domains limits the number on connections that are accessible to any one iManager user.

Other tools for managing the display include the Find, Filter, and Sort options on the iManager Tools menu. For information, see the iTivity User Guide, Section 4.1.4.
