    Prerequisites

     

    • Both, the Professional and Presonal editions can be installed in a VMWare environment. In such case, Dynamic Resource Balancing should be turned off by configuring Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS), appropriately in the ESX/VMlevel. This is for DRS to be included under the VM.

    • Need to exclude anti-virus scan for the folder where ManageEngine Analytics Plus is installed (eg. C:/ManageEngine/AnalyticsPlus)

    • The hostname of the server where ManageEngine Analytics Plus is to be installed should not contain the underscore ( _ ) symbol in it.

      Note that if your server hostname contains “_” (underscore), it may affect the ManageEngine Analytics Plus service startup and make certain services inaccessible on TCP/IP networks.

      For example, use the server hostname: https://manageengine-analyticsplus:8443 instead of https://manageengine_analyticsplus:8443

    • If you want to run the ManageEngine Analytics Plus Batch files, and if you are using Windows Server 2008, then make sure that you have 'Edit' permission in ManageEngine Analytics Plus folders (even if you are a user, having Administrator privilege). 

    NOTE:

    • If you do not have 'Edit' permission in ManageEngine Analytics Plus folders, then right click on the Batch file (e.g. 'changeHostPort.bat') and click on 'Run as administrator'.

    • Please make sure that the installation directory or its parent directories do not have any space character in its name.
