Installing software on a MEWS Server

Only systems with one or more MEWS Servers require this process. Use SiteConfig to install software on the MEWS Servers.

  • The server on which you are installing software is in the SiteConfig system description and communicating on the control network.
  • The server on which you are installing software has its credentials set in SiteConfig to allow access.
  • The GV STRATUS MEWS Engine must not be installed together with any other engine to avoid conflict for the usage of port 8081.
  1. Verify the SiteConfig roles currently assigned to the server. If the roles are not correct for your system design, add or remove roles accordingly. Roles are as follows:
    • GV STRATUS MEWS Engine
    • GV Log Manager
  2. Add the server to a deployment group, such as the GV STRATUS deployment group.
  3. Add the following files to the deployment group:
    • GrassValley_CoreServer_x.x.x.cab, which contains the following cab files that apply to this device:
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_MEWS_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_LogManager_x.x.x.cab
    Refer to release notes for version numbers.
  4. Do the SiteConfig Check Software operation on the server.
  5. Verify that deployment tasks are set to Install for the files listed above. If a WFRegMon install task appears, install it as well. It is required to support Grass Valley software installers. There is no uninstall task.
  6. Deploy software to the server.
  7. Restart as prompted.
  8. After deployment is complete, start the MEWS Service.

Next, license the MEWS Server.
