The CCURE Video Integration plugin needs to be installed on all EMC host machines. The EMC resource group must be taken offline before the installation, and then some services must be manually restarted before the installation.

What you should know

For more information about installing and configuring EMC AutoStart, see your EMC AutoStart documentation.

Procedure

  1. Connect to an EMC host server.
  2. Open the EMC AutoStart Console. In the tree view of the AutoStart console under Resource Groups, right-click on the appropriate EMC resource group and select Take Offline.
    IMPORTANT: Wait until all services listed under the resource group appear offline before proceeding to the next step. When a service is offline, it will turn grey.
    Once all services in the resource group are offline, you must manually restart the following services:
    • IP address
    • Node Alias
    • Database_mirror
    • SQL server
    • SQL Agent
    IMPORTANT: The services must be started in the order that they appear under the resource group. For example, you must start with the IP Address and finish with the SQL Agent.

  3. In the tree view of the AutoStart console, expand IP Addresses. Right-click on the virtual IP address and select Assign IP, then select the EMC host server on which you want to install the plugin. Wait for the service to be online (green) before continuing to the next step.
  4. In the tree view of the AutoStart console, expand Node Aliases. Right-click on the virtual node alias and select Assign Node Alias, then select the EMC host server on which you want to do the plugin installation. Wait for the service to be online (green) before continuing to the next step.
  5. In the tree view of the AutoStart console, expand Data Sources. Right-click on the data source and select Attach Data Source, then select the EMC host server on which you want to install the plugin. Wait for the service to be online (green) before continuing to the next step.
  6. In the tree view of the AutoStart console, expand Services. Right-click on the resource group and select Start Service, then select the EMC host server on which you want to do the plugin installation. Wait for the service to be online (green) before continuing to the next step.
  7. Right-click on the SQL Agent and select Start Service, then select the EMC host server on which you want to do the plugin installation. Wait for the service to be online (green) before continuing to the next step.
  8. Install the Security Center SDK on the EMC host server on which you have manually restarted the services.
    IMPORTANT: The SDK must be the same version as Security Center.
  9. Install the CCURE Video Integration plugin on the EMC host server on which you have manually restarted the services.
    IMPORTANT: During the install you must select the Redundant server installation using supported third party redundancy option and provide the virtual server (alias) name. You must also clear the Start the Tyco CrossFire services option at the end of the installation.

    Once the installation is done on the selected server, to install the plugin on another EMC host server, you must manually stop all the services in the reverse order that you started them. For example, stop the SQL Agent service first and unassign the IP last.
