Installing software on a Workflow Server

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

Prerequisites:
  • 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.
  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 Workflow Engine (Required. Must be assigned to Express/Core server or to dedicated Workflow Server)
    • GV STRATUS Rules Engine (Required. Must be assigned to Express/Core server or to dedicated Workflow Server)
    • GV STRATUS SocialMedia Engine (Optional)
    • GV STRATUS ExternalMedia Engine (Optional)
    • GV STRATUS Xcode Control Engine (Required. Must be assigned to Express/Core server or to dedicated Workflow Server)
    • GV STRATUS Control Panel
    • 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_Mediaflow_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_Rules_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_SocialMedia_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_ExternalMedia_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_Transcode_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_TrafficGateway_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_Sabretooth_Application_x.x.x.cab
      • GrassValley_LogManager_x.x.x.cab
    • GrassValley_STRATUSClient_x.x.x.cab, which contains the following cab files that apply to this device:
      • GrassValley_STRATUS_ControlPanel_x.x.x.cab
    • GrassValley_K2system_x.x.x.cab for K2 9.8.x systems.
    • GrassValley_K2Plus_x.x.x.cab for K2 10.x systems.
    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. 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.

When running the Data Mover Engine on the Workflow Server, make sure the Workflow Server can access all potential communication partners for the DME, including the FTP network of the K2 SAN and standalone systems.

Next, license the Workflow Server.
