Start Alloy Automation Server 8

Now the upgrade is complete and you can start the Alloy Automation Server 8.

  1. On the computer hosting the Automation Server, run the Automation Server Manager.
  2. Before configuring the Automation Server, you may need to import the Database Access Key. Otherwise, the Automation Server Manager cannot access the database.

    2. Fine-tune the database connection details, if needed: in the SQL Server field, enter the network address of the SQL Server, which may differ from the SQL Server name specified in the Database Access Key.
    3. Click Test Connection to make sure that the Automation Server can connect to the database using the specified settings.
  3. Click Start.
  4. Click OK to exit the Automation Server Manager.
