Prerequisites

  • 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. The underscore may affect the application 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 
  • The default port used by the application is 8443. 8443 (configurable at the time of installation) is the web server port, on which the web client will be accessible. This port should be open on your firewall in order to access the application from other workstations on your network. 
  • Analytics Plus can be installed on virtual servers. In such cases, Dynamic Resource Balancing should be turned off by configuring Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) at the ESX/VMlevel. 
  • Please make sure that the installation directory name or its parent directory names do not have any space character. 

Prerequisites for Windows: 

  • If you wish to run the ManageEngine Analytics Plus batch files on Windows Server 2008, make sure that you have 'Edit' permission for ManageEngine Analytics Plus folders (even if you are an administrator). 
  • To run the installation, right click the installation file and choose the option "Run as administrator".

Prerequisites for Linux:

  • Please do not install the application logged in as a root user. Installation should be done as a regular user. 
  • Make sure you add the installation path to your antivirus exclusion list before you proceed.
