Installing a LifeCycle Manager Service on Windows

Use this procedure to install a LifeCycle Manager Service on Windows.

Install a LifeCycle Manager Service on Windows

  1. Go to http://LifeCycle_Manager_Server_IP_address:Port# where Port# is the number you specified for the LifeCycle Manager Server port, plus 2.
    • If you used the default value (4060), the Port# is 4062.

    • If you do not know the value, look in the LCMInstallDir\LCM-Server\lcm.properties file for the value of http.server.port.

    The LifeCycle Manager Download Area is displayed.

  2. Click Download LifeCycle Manager Service Installation. A window is displayed asking if you want to save the installation file.
  3. Click Save. The installLcmService.jar file is saved to a temporary folder on the Windows server.
  4. Open a command prompt (Admin).

    If you are not using the Windows built-in local Administrator account and User Account Control (UAC) is enabled, then you must start the command prompt with the option to Run as Administrator. Right-click the cmd file and select Run as Administrator.

  5. Navigate to the directory where the jar file is located.
  6. Run the command to start the installation of the LCM service. You must type the full path to java in the bin-directory in the Java JDK installation. You must install JDK directly in the root and you must not use spaces in the directory name. For example,run the following command and press Enter:

    "C:\<path to jdk>\bin\java" -jar installLcmService.jar

    Note: 

    The currently available Java 8 update (u121) does not have support for Windows 2016, hence an additional parameter is required during installation of LCM service. If installing on Windows 2016, run the following command and press Enter:

    C:\<path to jdk>\bin\java -jar -Dos.name="Windows Server 2016" installLcmService.jar

    The installation of the LifeCycle Manager Service is started.

  7. Provide the following values to install the LifeCycle Manager Service:
    LCM Server IP

    Type the LifeCycle Manager Server IP address or FQDN, and press Enter.

    LCM Server port

    Press Enter to accept the default port (4060), or type a different port number matching the setting made when installing the server, and press Enter.

    LCM Server Admin

    Type the name of a user who is a member of the LifeCycle Manager Administrators group, and press Enter.

    LCM Server Admin Password

    Specify the password for the user, and press Enter.

    LCM Server HTTP update port

    This port is used to fetch the LifeCycle Manager Service installation program. Press Enter to accept the default port (4062) or type the correct port number, and press Enter.

    Note: 

    This question is only shown if the property http.server.port in the file lcm.properties has been edited.

    LCM Service name

    Type a name for the LifeCycle Manager Service, and press Enter.

    Infor recommends that you use the host name of the application server.

    LCM Service IP

    Type the computer IP address where the LifeCycle Manager Service must be installed. If the computer is set up to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) should be typed instead of the IP address.

    Make sure that you specify an external IP number.

    LCM Service installation path

    Press Enter to accept the default value, or type the desired path where the LifeCycle Manager Service will be installed and then press Enter. Ensure that this directory does not yet exist on your system.

    LCM Service port

    Press Enter to accept the default value 4065 or type a desired port number, and press Enter.

    If the port you are trying to access is already in use, a message is displayed.

    Port interval (from port - to port)

    Select the range of ports that will be used when Job executing nodes are started by the LifeCycle Manager Service. New nodes are started either by requests from the system or a product handled by LifeCycle Manager that needs a specific execution node to run its job in. If the default ports 4066 - 4075 are occupied, another range must be selected.

    Trust this certificate chain (Y/N)

    Type Y if you trust the certificate chain.

  8. Press Enter to finish the installation and start the LifeCycle Manager Service.

    A message that the LifeCycle Manager Service was installed successfully is displayed. The LifeCycle Manager Service is installed in the directory selected in the LCM Service installation path above.

  9. Check the Windows Services to ensure that the LifeCycle Manager Service you installed is started.
    Note: 

    To start and stop the LifeCycle Manager Service do the following:

    Start: Start the Windows Service LCM-Service:service_name.

    Stop: Stop the Windows Service LCM-Service:service_name.
