Summary

A table of the Windows installer properties for the 1E Catalog installer.

Tachyon Setup is the only supported method of installing a Tachyon Server. Installation using standalone MSI is not supported unless advised by 1E, which may be necessary in complex installations, using non-interactive (quiet/silent) command-lines, and may require post-install configuration steps.

Mandatory properties must be provided when installing using a command-line.

The installer file is: 1ECatalog.msi

PropertyDefaultMandatoryDescription

DATABASENAME

1ECatalogNoName for the 1E Catalog database.

DROPOLDDB

 0No

If set to 1 on the command-line, it drops the 1ECatalog database during installation if it exists on the specified SQL Server instance. The default behavior for this property is to not drop the existing database.

Exercise caution when using this option as any existing data will be deleted. Do not use this option if you want to preserve your existing data.

IISHOSTHEADER


No

Host header used for the HTTP binding of the website hosting the CatalogWeb web application.

If used, this should be a DNS FQDN of the web server, recommended to be a CNAME, for example: catalog.acme.local

See HTTP binding note below.

When installed by Tachyon Setup the HTTP host header is not specified, causing the CatalogWeb application to be installed under the Default website or its own CatalogWeb website.

IISIPADDRESS

*No

IP address used for the HTTP binding of the website hosting the CatalogWeb web application.

If you want to be non-specific about the IP address, use the default *.

See HTTP binding note below.

When installed by Tachyon Setup the HTTP IP Address is not specified, causing the CatalogWeb application to be installed under the Default website or its own CatalogWeb website.

IISPORT

80No

Port used for the HTTP binding of the website hosting the CatalogWeb web application.

See HTTP binding note below.

When installed by Tachyon Setup the HTTP port is not specified, causing the CatalogWeb application to be installed under the Default website or its own CatalogWeb website.

INSTALLDIR

C:\Program Files\1E\Catalog\No

The installation directory in the Destination Folder screen.

When installed by Tachyon Setup the installation folder for Catalog has the same parent folder as the Tachyon installation.

LOGPATH

C:\ProgramData\1E\Catalog\No

The folder where the Catalog.UpdateService.log file is found.

SQLSERVER

(local)YesName of the SQL Server instance where the 1E Catalog database is installed.

SVCPASSWORD


NoPassword for SVCUSER.

SVCUSER

NT AUTHORITY\Network ServiceNo

User name for the 1E Catalog Update Service service account and website application pool.

Do not use the SVCUSER property if you want to use the default.

Tachyon Setup uses NT AUTHORITY\Network Service.

HTTP binding

If an existing website uses the same HTTP binding (combination of HTTP port and IP address, and also Host Header if used) then the Catalog web application will be created under that website. For example, the Catalog web application is normally created under Default Web Site because it uses port 80 and * by default. If an existing web site does not have a matching HTTP binding then the installer will create a new website called CatalogWeb with the specified HTTP binding.

HTTPS is not supported. Please contact 1E if this is required.
