On the Getting Started page, review and accept the license terms, and click Next.
On the Use Microsoft Update to help keep your computer secure and up-to-date page, to enable Microsoft updates, select Use Microsoft Update when I check for updates (recommended). To disable Microsoft updates, select I don’t want to use Microsoft Update. Click Next.
On the Feature Selection page, select the Management Server checkbox and click Next.
On the Installation Location page, accept the default location and click Next.
On the Configure Existing Management Database page, select Use a remote SQL Server, and type the machine name of the computer running Microsoft SQL SQL, for example SqlServerMachine.
Note If the Microsoft SQL Server is deployed on the same server, select Use local SQL Server.
For the SQL Server Instance, select Use the default instance. If you are using a custom Microsoft SQL Server instance, you must select Use a custom instance and then type the name of the instance.
Specify the SQL Server Database name that this management server will use, for example AppvManagement.
On the Configure Management Server Configuration page, specify the AD group or account that will connect to the management console for administrative purposes for example MyDomain\MyUser or MyDomain\AdminGroup. The account or AD group you specify will be enabled to manage the server through the management console. You can add additional users or groups using the management console after installation
Specify the Website Name that you want to use for the management service. Accept the default if you do not have a custom name. For the Port Binding, specify a unique port number to be used, for example 12345.
To confirm that the setup has completed successfully, open a web browser, and type the following URL: http://managementserver:portnumber/Console.html if the installation was successful you should see the Silverlight Management Console appear without any error messages or warnings being displayed.
