Download the OptiTune Management Server by clicking on the Download button above, and extract the contents to a directory on your
Windows 2016 Server (e.g. to "C:\otdownload").
There are two ways to install the OptiTune Management Server:
Using the PowerShell script otinstall.ps1, found in the root of the install directory.
This assumes you are running on a clean install of Windows Server 2016,
and want to use Microsoft SQL Server Express 2017
Using the step by step instructions at optitune\Setup Guide.pdf.
This is for more advanced users, or those using Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Standard
To start the install script right click on "otinstall.ps1", and select "Run with Powershell".
You can also open a PowerShell window (with admin privileges), and change directory (CD) into the directory with
the script, and then type ".\otinstall.ps1" to execute the script.
The script can take a while to run, depending on your download speeds. If it fails, it can safely
be run again to complete the installation.
You can also view the OptiTune Management Server Setup Guide
to see step by step instructions for manually setting up the OptiTune Management Server on Windows Server 2016, which are the actions that the install script will perform.
After the install script completes, you will need to do the following to complete the setup:
Create a DNS entry that points to your server's IP4 address, e.g. "yourserver.company.com"
Install an SSL certificate, and add the HTTPS binding to the optitune website in IIS Manager.
You can navigate to http://localhost on the server, but the HTTP binding should
be removed, and only the HTTPS (secure) website binding remain in a production server.
To get a free SSL certificate that is valid for 3 months, visit https://ssl.comodo.com
Modify the C:\optitune\web\web.config file with your DNS name, for the StaticContentUrl and DynamicContentUrl entries
Register your first organization in OptiTune by visiting https://yourserver.company.com/register.aspx where you
of course replace "yourserver.company.com" with your DNS name.
When registering your first organization on the self hosted management server (i.e. on the registration page), you can either use a paid registration code,
free registration code, or leave it blank to setup monthly billing.
