PROPERTY MANAGER Installation Instructions
Follow these instructions for a standard installation
MANAGER is a multi-tier application. Because of this, the install includes
several components. The components are divided into two groups; the server
components and the workstation components. The server components include
those programs that reside (usually) on a network server. The workstation
components are installed on each workstation that will need to use the
database server may be ACCESS and/or MS SQL and may reside on a
different computer or the same computer as the Musick Provider. MS SQL
is not included with the PROPERTY MANAGER and must be installed prior to
creating an MS SQL database.
you are installing the PROPERTY MANAGER on a standalone computer, the
database, Musick Provider and Musick Manager will be installed on one
computer. For your convenience the
PMStandAlone.exe contains all of the
components in one easy install. To install everything on one computer,
Follow the instructions on the "Test Drive
Property Manager" page.
Follow the instructions on the "Test Drive Property Manager" page.
The server components consist of the Musick Provider and the server side programs for PROPERTY MANAGER. The Musick Provider runs on the server as a service and handles all the communication between the workstations and the database. If the Musick Provider is installed on a web server with a public IP address (URL), remote workstations with internet access can use that IP to communicate with the Provider.
The PROPERTY MANAGER server application receives instructions from the workstation user interface, processes the information and updates the database or returns data to the workstation.
The Musick Provider can communicate with either Ms Access or Ms Sql database. These databases maybe on the same server or a different server. This allows for scalable distributive processing.
The Musick Provider Console is the user interface for the Musick Provider. The Console allows the user to add/modify Provider Properties, Users, Security and Databases.
workstation components consist of the Musick Manager and the PROPERTY
MANAGER application. The Musick Manger handles the communication
from the User Interface (Tenant Maintenance for example) to the server
(Musick Provider). The user interface is handled by the PROPERTY MANAGER
