7. Install ETL Services Server

Applies to the following products: 
Questionmark Perception
Applies to the following Perception versions: 
Perception 5.7

Once you have installed the prerequisites (including a database system) on your ETL Services Server server, you can install the ETL Services Server component of Perception on that server. Copy the installer to that server and follow the steps below.

ETL Services Server will be installed on your ETL Services Server server.

By default, users do not have administrative user rights if you are logged on as a user other than the built-in administrator. This is also true even if you were added to the local Administrators group on the computer (this is a new security feature in Windows Server 2008 called Local User Administrator). If you do not have these privileges, Perception will not install correctly. Log in as the built-in administrator account, or explicitly invoke applications as the built-in administrator by using the Run as administrator command.

You will need to make sure you are logged in as an administrator when completing the installation of Perception.

To install the ETL Services Server:

  1. Launch the installer as an administrative user (see above for details), entering the password when prompted
  2. Select Custom from the Setup Type window
  3. Click Next
  4. Select the ETL Services Server option

  5. Click Next
  1. Choose where you would like to install Perception and the application data, including repository files (please note that the Repository files folder will not actually be created on this server, as it is only needed on the Business Logic tier)

    You can keep the default locations or click Browse to indicate an alternative path.
