Install VigorACS 2 on Windows

  1. Download the VigorACS 2 installation package and extract it. 

  2. Install OpenJDK first (Path: \ACS\Software), click Next and go through the installation procedure.  ACS 2.4.0 is compatible with OpenJDK 1.8.0_181, please upgrade the OpenJDK if you use the older version.

  3. Install MariaDB (Path: \ACS\Software) If you have installed the old version of MariaDB (e.g. MariaDB 5.5, MariaDB 10.2), you could ignore this step because the ACS is compatible with the old version of MariaDB. MariaDB will not upgrade the current older version, it may cause there're two MariaDB programs running on your server.
    Press Next and go through the installation procedure:
    1. Make sure the file path length of MariaDB is not longer than 100 characters, otherwise you may have problems during installing MariaDB
      (By default, the directory of MariaDB is located at C:\Program Files\MariaDB)

    2. Please pay attention about the root password, you need to type your own MySQL password and record it. The password is necessary information while you install the ACS program.

    3. Specify the service name, TCP port of MySQL service and engine setting. You could keep it as default if you don't have any conflict service(e.g. built-in MySQL service) installed on your server.
      Press Next and go through the rest part of the procedure.

  4. WinPcap is a necessary dependency since ACS 2.4.0. Install WinPcap (Path: \ACS\Software), click Next and go through the installation procedure.

  5. After all of the dependency has installed, now we could start to install VigorACS 2 (Path: \ACS\ACS):

    1. Select MySQL/MariaDB Path: When program prompts to select the path of MySQL, you must choose the correct directory.

    2. Database Install Type: You could choose either Rebuild or Upgrade Database
      - Rebuild Database: If you install the VigorACS 2 for the first time, please select Rebuild Database to create a new one.
      - Upgrade Database: If you just need to upgrade the ACS from the old version, please select the Upgrade Database.

      Note: Rebuild Database will clean all of the data in the TR-069 database, please confirm you are the new user or just want to upgrade ACS version.

    3. MySQL/MariaDB password setting: Enter the MySQL password which specified at step 3-b. We could press Check password button to verify if the password is correct.
      If you forgot the password, you may refer the document to reset the MySQL password.

    4. Install influxDB: Specify the path to install the influxDB. The program will install the influxDB service at the same time.

    5. Memory setting: Type the memory size that ACS service allows to use. The minimum requirement of memory setting is 1024MB(MAX) and 900MB(MIN).

    6. Setup VigorACS 2 HTTP and HTTPS port: Specify the web service port of VigorACS 2. It is recommended to use other ports instead of default 80/443 port to prevent the possible conflict.

    7. Setup STUN and Syslog port: Specify the STUN and Syslog service port of VigorACS 2. If you have other Syslog utility running on the Syslog server, it's recommended to use another Syslog port to avoid the conflict.

    8. Setup user home path for VigorACS: Specify the location of EMS folder. You may refer the document to know what's the EMS folder.

    9. Select the location of the ACS folder: Specify the location of ACS folder and go through the rest of procedure.
