Installing the Self-Service Portal

Installing the Self-Service Portal

  1. Log on (or remote logon) as Administrator to the computer that is intended as the Portal.
  2. Double-click Veritas_DataInsight_windows_6_1_0_N_x64.exe to launch the installer.

    where, N is the build number.

    If UAC is enabled, right-click on the installer and choose the Run as administrator option for elevated administrative rights during the installation.

  3. The Welcome to the Veritas Data Insight Setup Wizard window appears. Click Next.
  4. In the License Agreement window, select I accept the agreement, and click Next.
  5. In the Select Destination Directory window, browse to the directory in which you want Data Insight to be installed. By default, the destination directory is C:\Program Files\DataInsight.

    Note:

    You cannot install the portal node on the same computer as the Management Server.

  6. Depending on your deployment scenario, in the Configure Type of Install window, select Self-Service Portal as the installation option.
  7. Click Next.
  8. In the Configure Data Directory window, browse to the location where you want to store the product data.

    Select a location with enough free space and high-performance disks. It is recommended that you choose a location other than the system volume for the data directory.

  9. In the Worker Node Address window, enter the Fully Qualified Host Name (FQHN) of the host. This host name must be resolvable from the Management Server and the other worker nodes.
  10. In the Configure Networking window, enter the following information:

    Communication Service Port

    See About Communication Service.

    Configuration Service Port

    Configuration service is a process that provides interface to configuration and other product data that is stored on the local system. This service port does not need to be accessible outside the host machine.

  11. In the Configure Self-Service Portal window, enter the port numbers for the Self-Service Portal service and the Workflow service. By default the port numbers are 443 for the Portal service and 8686 for the Workflow service.

    Note:

    The installer validates whether the appropriate ports are free to accept connections.

  12. Review the options that you have selected in the installation wizard in Installation Summary window.
  13. To start the installation process, click Begin Install.
  14. To register the worker node with the Management Server after you exit setup, select the Launch Worker Node Registration Wizard after exit check box.

    See Registering the worker node.

  15. To exit setup, click Finish.

Emails for remediation tasks are sent to data owners from the Portal Server. Ensure that you can connect to the configured SMTP server from the Portal server. Similarly, for incident remediation, the Portal node communicates with the DLP server. Ensure that the portal node can connect to the DLP server.
