  5. On the Website Configuration screen, set the parameters for the Enterprise View website as follows:
    • Website Port – sets the port to be used for the Enterprise View website. This defaults to the standard IIS port 80. If changed from the default, users will need to add this to the URL for the Enterprise View Website, for example http://myserver:8080/EnterpriseView
    • IP Address – sets the IP address for the Enterprise View website.
    • Host Header – sets the host header for the Enterprise View website. This is the server name used to locate the website when users enter the site URL in their browser. In order to use it when it has been set, you will need to have defined the appropriate DNS settings.
  6. In the Database Server screen, set the parameters for installing it Set the Database server that you are installing to: parameter to the server where the database resides. Click Browse... to display a list of server and instances visible from the local computer. The format of the database server identified may be one of the following:
    • (Local) – uses of the local default instance
    • ServerName – uses a remote server using the default instance
    • ServerName\Instance – uses a remote server and named instance using a dynamic port. For this option to work correctly the SQL browser service must be enabled.
    • ServerName, Port – uses of a remote server and instance defined by its fixed port
    Set the Name of an existing or new database catalog: field to an existing database on the database server or a new name. If it is on a existing database server, the Enterprise View tables are created in the existing database.

Clicking the Browse button will display the existing database catalogs on the selected database server.
  7. On the Ready to Install screen, click Next.

If you set up an additional host header for the Enterprise View website:

  1. Configure the IIS client access policy to allow cross domain access to the Enterprise View website. This is done via the ClientAccessPolicy.xml file which resides in the IIS root folder, typically c:\inetpub\wwwroot. If this file already exists, append the contents of the ClientAccessPolicy.xml file from the Enterprise View %INSTALL_DIR%\Dashboard.web folder to it. If it does not exist, copy it from the Dashboard.web folder to the IIS root folder.
  2. Edit the web.config file the Enterprise View %INSTALL_DIR%\Dasboard.web folder and modify the service base URI used to access the Enterprise View website.

  3. Locate the line in the file:

    <!-- add key="ServiceBaseUri" value="http://<<HostFQDN>>/EnterpriseView/"/-->
  4. Remove the comments and update the <<HostFQDN>> placeholder with the base URI for your Enterprise View website. For example,

    <add key="ServiceBaseUri" value=""/
  5. Save the file and test the new configuration by accessing the Enterprise View home page using the host FQDN.
