Installing a Team Development Client
Before installing a VAST Client for team development, you need to know some information about where the library is installed. EMSRV is used to connect to the library which is installed on a network server for team development. The system administrator should provide the following information about the VAST library:
The TCP hostname or the IP address (dotted decimal address) of the server where the library is installed.
The port that the client will connect to on the server machine (defaults to 4800).
The absolute path for the library on the server machine. The drive letter must be the drive letter on the server machine, not the mapped drive letter for the server machine.
To understand where the client is installed, refer to file locations.
To install only a VAST Client do the following:
Decompress the downloaded VAST Platform product installer for your version of UNIX.
Change directories to the folder created by de compressing the documentation installer package. Then as root, or by using the sudo command, execute ./vainstall client.
When the installation is complete, the last line in the terminal should be
“Installation of VAST Client Completed..”
To view the readme file open an Internet browser on
file:///usr/local/VASTPlatform/10.0.2x86/readme/readme.htm (32-bit install)
file:///usr/local/VASTPlatform/10.0.2x64/readme/readme.htm (64-bit install).
The Client and Admin tools are installed to the varoot directory. A shortcut to Environments is created as part of the installation process.
Your next step is to launch Environments and enter the library location information supplied by your system administrator to correctly configure your environment to connect to the library via EMSRV.
You do not need to reboot your machine after installation.
