The Deployment Wizard uses the configuration file generated by Topology Builder to install the necessary for Monitoring Server files.

To install a Monitoring Server
  1. Log on to the computer on which you want to install Monitoring Server as a member of the Administrators group.

  2. Start the Deployment Wizard.

  3. In the Deployment Wizard, click Install or Update Communications Server System.

  4. In Step 1: Install Local Configuration Store, click Run.

    Deployment Wizard reads the configuration information from the Central Management database, which you defined using Topology Builder, writes the XML configuration file to the local machine.

  5. In Step 2: Setup or Remove Communications Server Components, click Run.

    Deployment Wizard installs the Communications Server components specified in the XML configuration file stored on the local machine.

  6. If you are running Monitoring Server as a standalone role on the computer, you can skip Step 3: Request, Install or Assign Certificates. There are no special certificate requirements for the deploying Monitoring Server.

  7. In Step 4: Start Services, click Run.

    Before you start the services, check to make sure that the LcsCDR database and QoEMetrics databases were correctly created in the SQL Server instance you specified for Monitoring Server. The two databases are used to store Call Detail Record (CDR) and Quality of Experience (QoE) data.

  8. Click Exit.
