5.2.3 Installing the Service Manager on Windows

On Windows, the installation modes are win32 and unattended only. Use unattended mode to do multiple installations. For more information on this topic see Section 5.4, “Unattended Installation”.

Note

To install the Service Manager as a Windows service, perform the installation as a privileged user.

On Windows Vista or later, if user account control is on, an operating system dialog box requests confirmation of the installation.

To install the Service Manager on Windows, find the executable file named mysqlmonitor-version-windows-installer.exe (where version represents the three-part version number).

  1. Double-click the MySQL Monitor installer. Select the language to use for the installer and click OK.

  2. With the installation language selected, the remainder of the installation sets up the installation location and the main configuration parameters required by MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. Click Next to continue.

  3. Select the installation directory to install the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager components. By default on Windows, the directory is C:\Program Files\MySQL\Enterprise\Monitor. Click the button next to the installation directory field to select a directory using the File chooser, or type the directory manually. Click Next to continue.

  4. Configure the options that set the network ports used by the Tomcat server. For more information, see Section 5.2.1, “Service Manager Installation Common Parameters”. Click Next to continue.

    Note

    If the Windows firewall is enabled, unblock ports for Apache/Tomcat and the MySQL server.

  7. You are now prompted to start the installation process. Click Next to continue.

  8. Once the installation is completed, you receive information on how to uninstall MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. Click Next to continue.
