Installing Enterprise Sync Server

You will need the AccuRev Host Name/IP Address and Port during this installation.

Micro Focus supports the installation of the Enterprise Sync server on one of the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 SP2.
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012.
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (64-bit).

Required hardware:

  • 64-bit, quad-core systems with 8-16 GB of memory.

If AccuRev is installed on one of the supported operating systems which are also supported by Enterprise Sync, you could install the Enterprise Sync server on the same machine. If the Enterprise Sync server is installed on another machine, make sure that your network connection to the AccuRev server provides sufficient performance.

Use the following steps to install Enterprise Sync.
  1. Using Administrator credentials, double click the installation media (enterprise-sync-<version#>-win-64.exe) to start the install.
  2. Click Next on the Introduction screen.
  3. Read and accept the license agreement. Then click Next.
  4. On the Choose Install Folder screen, either accept the default location or choose another one. If Enterprise Sync is already installed you have to check the upgrade flag or uninstall Enterprise Sync first if you would like to start from scratch. Click Next.
  5. If it's an installation from scratch you have to specify the AccuRev server's access parameter. The default port for accessing the AccuRev server is 5050. This dialog doesn't pop up when upgrading an existing installation. Enter the Host Name and Port of the AccuRev server. Click Next.
  6. On the Choose Shortcut Folder, enter the location for the product icons. Click Next.
  7. Review the Pre-Installation Summary page and click Install to install the components.
  8. When the wizard is finished, click Done.
Two Enterprise Sync Services were started automatically: Enterprise Sync Web Service and EnterpriseSyncConnect.

To verify the installation:

  1. Open the page http://localhost:8081/ConnectWeb in your browser.
  2. Enter user Administrator and password Administrator.
  3. Use the DefaultAuthenticator.
  4. Click Login.
Note: User name and password are case sensitive.

By installation default, the Enterprise Sync Web Service listens on port 8081. If you like to change this port execute the following steps:

  1. Stop the Enterprise Sync Web Service using the Windows Services utility.
  2. Edit the file server.xml located in the installation directory, by default.

    C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Enterprise Sync\WebServer\conf.

  3. Change the port 8081 using an appropriate port of your choice and then save the file.
  4. Restart the Enterprise Sync Web Service.
