Installation Instructions

For new installations, or if upgrading from Wild Strait Performance Intelligence version 1.4.0 or above, follow the standard installation instructions in the Installation and Configuration Guide.

If any new Test Execution Service instances have been created with the new Test Execution Service management functionality introduced in version 1.4.0, a SQL script should be run over the analysis databases which have been created to correct a minor issue in the schema. Open a new query window in SQL Server Management Studio, select the required analysis database and then run the SQL script Analysis DB Patch 1.4.1.1.sql.

If upgrading from an existing Wild Strait Performance Intelligence version 1.3.3 or earlier installation, install the software following the standard installation instructions. On completion of installation and prior to use, upgrade any existing datapool database instances, using the MigrateDatapools.exe utility supplied with version 1.4.0. Refer to the release notes for 1.4.0 for instructions.

If upgrading from Wild Strait PI version 1.3.0 or earlier, a one-off migration of Wild Strait recording certificates is also required after installation. This can be done by running the MigrateCertificateManager.exe utility supplied with release 1.3.1. Refer to the release notes for 1.3.1 for instructions.

Known issues

  • The repair options in both the client and server installers do not correct all classes of damage to an installation. The workaround if repair is unsuccessful is to uninstall and reinstall.
