Before you install the Veritas Data Insight servers, verify the following installation prerequisites:
Verify the server system requirements.
Gather the required materials.
The Data Insight host has a minimum of 10 GB of available disk space.
The Management Server node can connect to the domain controller of each domain that needs to be scanned.
The Data Insight server that hosts the Collector worker node can connect to the filers that it is supposed to monitor.
A bi-directional network connection on port 8383 exists between the Management Server and the worker node(s), and between the worker node(s).
The firewall is configured to allow https/http access to the required ports. The Management Server should also be allowed access to http://sort.veritas.com, either directly or through a proxy, to get patch notifications.
The keystore file (commd.keystore) that enables secure communication between the worker node and the Management Server is copied to the worker node from the Management Server.
You have obtained the credentials required during software installation. These credentials are required to log into the Data Insight Console after the installation.
Additional credentials are required when you configure storage repositories and directory services, and for scanning of shares, site collections or equivalent data sources. For a list of these credentials, see the Veritas Data Insight Administrator's Guide.
Prepare for SMTP Alerting. When installing the Management Server, ensure that you have the details of your SMTP server and authentication details, if any, available.
Prepare for Exclude Rules. Gather a list of paths to be excluded while scanning. For access events, gather a list of IP addresses, user accounts, or file extensions whose access events should be ignored. For more details, see the Veritas Data Insight Administrator's Guide.
If you plan to enable Smart Classification, apply the following Windows updates on the Indexer nodes:
For Windows Server 2012 R2 install the update available at:
To allow classification of images, a software called Tesseract is installed on the Management Server, Collector nodes, and Classification server on Windows machines during the installation of Data Insight. The default location for the Tesseract installation is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Tesseract-OCR. In case the Tesseract installation fails, refer to the Troubleshooting section in the Veritas Data Insight Administrator's Guide to manually install the Tesseract software.
