To make sure that your fixed AutoVu™ deployment goes smoothly, you must perform a series of pre-configuration steps.


  1. Have the information from your initial site survey on hand before you install the AutoVu™ hardware.

    For example, you should already know how high to install a fixed Sharp before you begin the installation.

  2. Install the following Security Center software components:
    1. Security Center Server software on your main server.

      The main server is the computer hosting the Directory role.

    2. (Optional) Security Center Server software on expansion servers.
      An expansion server is any other server on the system that does not host the Directory role. You can add expansion servers at any time.
    3. Security Center Client software on at least one workstation.
  3. Install the fixed Sharp hardware (see the AutoVu™ Hardware Installation Guide).
  4. Upgrade Sharp units to the latest software and firmware.
    NOTE: You can perform certain upgrades from Security Center Config Tool.
