Installation of the Image Server

The Image Server to which to Render Engines will have access independent from the project needs to be installed only once. A scalable adjustment of the Image Server performance is possible and can be configured in the Render Engine. 

1. Installation of the service

Copy the directory „ Image Server" of the distribution into your desired target directory. .NET-based Windows services are installed via the command line program installutil.exe. To do this, simply open a command line and change into the copied directory „ Image Server". In our example, it is called „c:\\services\ Image Server".

The required program installutil.exe is already stored in your computer in the directory „%WINDIR%\\framework\v2.0.50727\". For the installation, execute this program with the following arguments:

%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe Onion.ImageServer.WindowsService.exe 

Switch the start type of the service in the service management of the server from "manual" to "automatic".

The server is ready for operation in its standard configuration. If a non administrative account is being used you'll need to apply a proper urlacl setting:

netsh http add urlacl url=http://*:8082/ user=SERVERNAME|DOMAIN\ACCOUNT

Other configuration options are described in the configuration details of the Image Server.
