Installing software on a Render Engine Server

Only systems with one or more GV STRATUS servers that are Render Engines require this process. Use SiteConfig to install software on the server.

  • The server on which you are installing software must be in the SiteConfig system description and communicating on the control network.
  • The server on which you are installing software must have its credentials set in SiteConfig to allow access.
  • Windows High Priority updates are required and must be installed. For more details, refer to Install Important Windows updates for EDIUS.
  • QuickTime must be installed on the server to which you are installing the GV STRATUS Render Engine software.
  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 Control Panel
    • GV Log Manager
    • StorNext File System Client
    • GV Embedded Security Manager
    • GV STRATUS Render Engine
  2. Add the server to a 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_RenderEngine_x.x.x.cab
      • GVEmbeddedSecurityManager_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_Sabretooth_Application_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_LogManager_x.x.x.cab
    • For K2 9.8.x systems; use GrassValley_K2system_x.x.x.cab, which contains the following cab files that apply to this device:
      • GrassValleyK2Server_x64_9.8.x.x.cab
      • SNFS_x64_4.7.x.xxx.cab
    • For K2 10.x systems; use GrassValley_K2Plus_x.x.x.cab, which contains the following cab files that apply to this device:
      • GrassValleyK2Server_x64_10.x.x.cab
      • SNFS_x64_6.0.x.xxx.cab
    • GrassValley_STRATUSClient_x.x.x.cab, which contains the following cab files that apply to this device:
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_Application_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_ControlPanel_x.x.x.cab
    Refer to release notes for version numbers.
  4. Do the SiteConfig Check Software operation on the server.
    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.
  5. Set deployment tasks to Install for all the files listed above except when installing Render Engine software, do not install the Render Engine cab file yet. 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 that is not Render Engine software to the server.
  7. Restart as prompted.
  8. When installing Render Engine software, do the following:
    1. Set deployment tasks to Install for the Render Engine cab file.
    2. Deploy Render Engine software to the server.
      Note: Expect long deployment times when installing Render Engine software. It can take several minutes to install. Allow the installation to complete. Do not attempt to stop the installation.
  9. Restart as prompted.
