This checklist identifies preliminary tasks to complete, information to gather, and decisions to make before creating a network deployment.
TipTo review deployment settings, including details of product configuration, you can create a test deployment. After the learning process, you can delete the test deployment.
| Deployment Checklist |
| ||Review the system requirements by clicking the System Requirements link in the installer. Confirm that your network, servers, and client computers meet these system requirements. |
| ||Understand the general process for installing the type of license you have purchased. For a network license deployment, know the license server name(s), and the type of license server model that was specified at the time of license purchase. For more information, see Determine the License Server Model|
| ||Install and activate any network administrator tools and utilities. For example, if you are using a network license, install the Network License Manager from the installer. |
| ||Locate your product serial number and product key. These are located on the outside of the product packaging, or in an email message if you downloaded your product or upgrade from Autodesk. |
| ||Identify a network location for deployments, and create a shared folder to contain deployments. |
| ||If your product has language options, decide which language to use for each deployment. |
NoteLanguages can be included when you initially create a deployment, or when you create a new deployment configuration, but not when you modify a deployment.
| ||Determine whether to create log files on individual computers, in the deployment folder, or both. |
| ||Determine whether to run installations in silent mode. |
NoteWhen products are installed in silent mode, the user's system can automatically reboot without warning when the installation is complete.
| ||Identify other applicable configuration settings such as defined search paths, locations of support files, and whether to automatically install service packs. |
