Article Summary

If you have already installed the 12d Synergy File Replication server, you do not need to complete a full install. Please see Upgrading the 12d Synergy File Replication Server.

1.1. Server Account and Password

A service account is the user under which the 12d Synergy FRS is run. It should have administrative rights on the computer. A service account must have the Log on as a Service right, but this can be applied after installation, and in some cases, can be applied automatically.

1.2. Master Server

You will be prompted for the address and port number of the 12d Synergy Master Server – this should be accessible by the FRS once installed.

1.3. Data Directory

You will be prompted for a location to store data during the installation.
This storage area could become quite large, depending on your usage and needs. It can be migrated at a later date if need be. Note that if you should not use a mapped network drive unless you can guarantee the drive letter will be available when the 12d Synergy Server service starts.

1.4. Required Components

You will need to know if you have a SQL Server database installed and the details to connect to it. If you do not have one installed, 12d Synergy can install one for you.
If you do have a SQL Server you wish to use, you will need to know:

  1. The server address and instance name
  2. The name of the database

1.5. FRS Install File

Before you get started, you will need to have created a new File Server entry on your Master Server, via the Administrator.
When you have done so, you will be supplied with an install file, which is necessary for this installation
