Before you begin with the Metasys Server installation or upgrade, review Table 1 to verify that you have the required software. The table also indicates where you can obtain each software component.
Note: If you purchased Metasys Server software that includes SQL Server software (for example, MS-ADX25SQL-0), the SQL Server package is provided in a .zip file. Simply use a file extraction tool such as WinZip™ or 7-Zip File Manager to extract the .zip file to the server's hard drive.
Note: Do not install Metasys on a Domain Controller. A Domain Controller provides the Active Directory service to network users and computers; stores directory data; and manages user and domain interactions including the login process, authentication, and directory searches.
