Install VTS

This topic describes how to install the Virtual Table Server (VTS).

Note: Micro Focus encourages you to ensure secure configuration and proper hardening of the VTS server—this is not provided by Micro Focus. You can use the useSSL configuration setting.

If you do not implement secure configuration and proper hardening, you may expose the system to increased security risks. You understand and agree to assume all associated risks and hold Micro Focus blameless for the same. It remains at all times solely the responsibility of the customer to assess their own regulatory and business requirements. Micro Focus does not represent or warrant that its products comply with any specific legal or regulatory standards applicable to the customer while conducting the customer's business.

To install VTS:

  1. If you have an older version of VTS, uninstall it.
  2. Run the setupVTS.exe file located in the \Additional Components\Virtual Table Server folder in the installation media. The VTS Setup Wizard opens, displaying the welcome page.
  3. Follow the online instructions to complete the VTS installation.
  4. During the VTS installation process, the Configure VTS administration server screen appears. This screen lets you configure the VTS Administration server.

  5. In the Admin UI server port box, keep the default value, 4000.
  6. Click Next to continue with the installation. The Configure VTS screen appears.

  7. Specify where to save the VTS data file.
  8. Make sure that the Start Virtual Table Server Automatically check box is selected.
  9. Click Next, and then follow the wizard’s instruction to complete the VTS installation procedure.
  10. To use local VTS help, see Download help centers.

Note: At the end of the installation process, a shortcut for VTS is created and added to the Start menu, Micro Focus > Tools > Virtual Table Server.

This shortcut gives you access to the VTS user interface on the local machine. If you change the port that is used to access the VTS user interface, you must manually update the URL property of the shortcut. For details on how to change the VTS user interface access port, see Configuring VTS.

If you are unable to access the VTS user interface, make sure that the VTS service is started. To start the VTS service, go to Control Panel > Systems & Security > Administration Tools > Services. Right-click VTS Service and select Start.
