The following steps describe how to install Web Components Server.

To install Web Components Server

  1. Ensure that IIS is installed on the computer on which you will be installing Web Components Server. On Windows Server 2003, install IIS 6.0. On Windows Server 2008, install IIS 7.0 with IIS 6.0 Management Compatibility and IIS Windows Authentication, and ensure that the ASP.NET role service is installed.

  2. Install Web Components Server.

    webcomponents.msi /qr

  3. Activate Web Components Server.

    LCSCmd.exe /Web:<Web Components Server FQDN> /Action:Activate /PoolName:<pool name> [/Password:<Account Password>] [/UnRegSPN:[TRUE|FALSE] ] [/DisableABOutput:[TRUE|FALSE] ][/guest:<guest account name> ][/guestpassword:<guest account password> ] [/externalwebfqdn:<External Web FQDN> ] [/RefDomain:<Domain FQDN>] [/PDCRequired[:{TRUE|FALSE}]] [/GlobalSettingsDC:<FQDN of a global settings domain controller>] [/DC:<domain controller FQDN>] [/GC:<Global Catalog FQDN>] [/Global:{Configuration | System}] [/User:<Account Name>] [/L:<log file path>][/XML[:{TRUE|FALSE}]] [/?[:{TRUE|FALSE}]]
