Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements before installing Automate Schedule on your Windows server.
Note: Skybot Scheduler has been renamed to Automate Schedule and is now part of the Automate suite of products. The existing Skybot Scheduler features and functionality are the same; only the product name has changed.
Use the following instructions to download and install the Automate Schedule server software onto your Windows enterprise server.
Caution: If you’re updating your existing installation, back up the database before proceeding. The default location for the backup file is in the root program directory. Be sure to move it to another location before starting the update.
If you want to install Automate Schedule silently, use the
/S switch on the command line. In addition to
/S, the following switches are available for defining input on the silent installs:
The server listen port for the Automate Schedule server:
The database port for the Automate Schedule server:
The shutdown port for the web server:
The connector port for the web server:
The hold scheduler check box (values = 0/1):
The hold agent's check box (values = 0/1):
The install path (must be an absolute path and this has to be the last switch on the command with no quotes)
setupAutomateSchedule.exe /S /LISTEN=7472 /DATABASE=7432 /SHUTDOWN=8005 /CONNECTOR=8008 /HOLD_SCHEDULER=0 /HOLD_AGENTS=0 /D=C:\Program Files (x86)\Help Systems\Automate Schedule
If a port is specified to the port configuration utility, the value specified needs to be available for use (not busy) or an error will occur. If the port is left to default and the default port is found to be busy, the Port Configuration Utility will bump the port number and try again. This will continue until a free port is found.
A silent agent install using default values is performed on new server installs. If a listen port was specified for a silent server install, the agent install will automatically be installed with
/REMOTEPORT= to the server listen port specified.
After installation is complete, point a web browser to the following URL:
where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your enterprise server.
