The OPC Client plugin is installed separately from the Security Center system.

Before you begin

Make sure of the following:

What you should know

  • Although it is possible to host the plugin role on any server, it is a best practice to host that role on a dedicated expansion server for best system performance.
  • If you already have an Intrusion Manager role set up, install the extension on that server.
  • For your operators to have access to the features added by this plugin, you must install this plugin on all Security Center client workstations.

Procedure

  1. Open the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. From the Download Finder list, select your version of Security Center.
  3. Search for your package by name and download it.
  4. Click the downloaded .exe file to unzip the file.
    By default, the file is unzipped to C:\Genetec.
  5. Close Security Desk and Config Tool.
  6. Open the extracted folder, right-click the setup.exe file, and click Run as administrator.
  7. Follow the installation instructions.
  8. On the Installation Wizard Completed page, click Finish.
    IMPORTANT: The Restart Genetecâ„¢ Server option is selected by default. You can clear this option if you do not want to restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server immediately. However, you must restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server to complete the installation.
