Installation Process

  1. v1.2.1 Instructions:
    1. uManage uses a group to control which users are able to be modified by Admin users, this prevents other employees from resetting passwords for service or administrative accounts.
    2. Create a new Global Security Group in Active Directory called "uManage-Users".
    3. Add any users/employees whose information you want to view or modify from uManage to the new group.
  2. It’s best to setup a directory on the system to hold the application. Best practice says to create the directory on a drive that does not contain the system files (C:\). We use “D:\uManage”.
  3. Download the latest stable release, as of writing that is v1.2.
  4. Unzip the files into the new directory.
  5. Open the IIS Manager.
  6. Create a new website.
  7. You can use an existing Application Pool, however remember that the application pool must be running .NET 4.0 and not 2.0. For security reasons we suggest running this application under its own isolated pool, remember we deal with some pretty sensitive data in this system.
  8. Point the website to the directory we created.
  9. The account that is used in the Application Pool must also be granted modify permission to the website directory so it can dynamically update the configuration files as part of the Setup Wizard.
  10. Select the IP address and port number to use. To make the user’s life much easier we suggest leaving the default of port 80 and using a host header. If you want to run the application over HTTPS/SSL you will need to setup a dedicated IP address and ensure HTTPS is selected as the protocol.
  11. Make sure to un-check the checkbox to start the website immediately.
  12. If you decided to use a host header make sure your DNS record has also been created so that users can use a name instead of IP Address.
  13. Once the site is created you also need to enable Windows Authentication, and disable Anonymous Authentication. Under the IIS group select Authentication.
    1. Select Windows Authentication and click “Enable” in the Actions Pane.
    2. Select 'Anonymous Authentication' and click 'Disable' in the actions pane.
  14. OK, start the website.
  15. See the section titled Delegating User Control for help in setting up the required permissions to modify domain objects.
  16. Browse to the site, the Setup Wizard should load.
  17. Walk through the Setup Wizard. The Wiard does the following important things:
    1. Makes sure you accept the license agreement
    2. Connects to and verifies access to your domain
    3. Connects to your database server and creates the required database (Requires SQL Authentication! To manually setup the DB see below)
    4. Allows you the change the User Portal settings
    5. Confirms your settings
    6. Configures the application and loads it!
