Installing EDIUS software with SiteConfig

  • The devices to which you are installing software must be in a deployment group.
  • For the software you are installing, the managed package must be added to the deployment group.
  • The SiteConfig "Check Software" operation must have been recently done on the devices to which you are installing software.
  • If installing to an EDIUS Workgroup client PC on which you have previously installed EDIUS manually (not with SiteConfig), EDIUS Workgroup and supporting software must first be uninstalled manually, before attempting to install with SiteConfig.
  • The PCs to which you are installing the EDIUS application must have the SiteConfig role of EDIUS Application and if EDIUS Workgroup also the role of StorNext file system client.
  • GV STRATUS client cab file and EDIUS cab file must be added to the EDIUS deployment group. This system cab file contains all the cab files required for both proxy clients and high-resolution clients. Refer to release notes for version information.
  • Windows High Priority updates are required and must be installed. For more details, refer to Install Important Windows updates for EDIUS.
Note: Expect long deployment times when installing Render Engine and EDIUS software. EDIUS software and Render Engine software can take several minutes to install. Allow the installation to complete. Do not attempt to stop the installation.
  1. In the Software Deployment | Deployment Groups tree view, select the device or the group of devices to which you are installing software. You can select a Device node, a Deployment Group node, or the All Deployment Groups node. The corresponding software deployment tasks are displayed in the Tasks list view.
  2. Identify one or more deployment tasks listed as "Install" in the Action column.
  3. For the software you are installing, select the Deploy check box in the row for the install task. If a WFRegMon install task appears, install it as well. It is required to support Grass Valley software installers. There is no uninstall task.
  4. Before starting the deployment session, verify the following for the installation deployment tasks:
    • The Deploy checkbox is selected.
    • The software package is the correct version.
    • The Action column reports Install.
    • The Status column indicates the planned icon.
    • The Details column does not indicate that deployment options are required.
  5. Click the Start Deployment button. Deployment tasks run and software is installed. Progress is reported in both the Status and Details columns.
    Note: If an "Unable to copy ... to target" error appears for a device that has the Grass Valley Embedded Security solution, apply the Embedded Security solution one-time initial deployment process to the device. After the one-time process is complete the error does not appear and it is no longer necessary to put Embedded Security in Update mode.
  6. Monitor progress as indicated by both the Status and Details column. When finished, the Status column indicates complete.
