There are 3 options for installing Enterprise Tester:
For trial customer and customers with small installations, Enterprise Tester provides a set of installation files which will install a SQL Server Express database.
Download Enterprise Tester from www.enterprisetester.com/download . Select the EnterpriseTester-X.X.XXXX-Sql-Bundle-Setup file and run the .exe file.
Ensure the pre-requisites have already been installed and the various components configured, you can then download and install the Enterprise Tester application.
SQL Server Express Database is limited to a maximum database size of 10gb, and limited to up to 1gb of memory to be used by SQL Server and up to 1 CPU.
For larger installations such as 30 user and greater, we recommend SQL Server 2008 R2 Database.
From V4.6, a new install file for Enterprise Tester is available if you are planning to configure your own production database on another server. Download the Enterprise Tester installation Files labelled " EnterpriseTester-X.X.XXXX-Standard-Setup.zip" Before attempting to install Enterprise Tester for use with another database ensure that you follow the steps below.
The following steps must be completed before you access the Enterprise Tester:
By default this file is located:
c:\Program Files\Catch Limited\Enterprise Tester\Web\web.config
There will be a small delay as the application creates all the tables in the target database, before starting the First-Use Wizard which will guide you through adding a new organization, license etc. Once this has completed, you can access Enterprise Tester and complete the initial setup. If an error occurs upon starting due to an incorrect connection string, if you edit the web.config file it should then trigger the application to start again. Once restarted, refresh the page for the Enterprise Tester website, and have it attempt to create all the tables again. If the error occurred for another reason i.e. insufficient permissions, you will need to restart IIS / the default website, so you can attempt to run the installation process again.
The following shows a typical connection string for MS SQL server. If you want to configure Enterprise Tester to use a database called "EnterpriseTesterProd" on the SQL server with the host name "SQLCORP01", using the SQL login "etapp", and password "pas$w0rD1" you would use the following connection string ( without the line breaks):
<connectionStrings> <add name="Default" connectionString="Data Source=SQLCORP01; Initial Catalog=EnterpriseTesterProd;MultipleActiveResultSets=true; User Id=etapp; Password=pas$w0rD1;"/> </connectionStrings>
For further detail on SQL server connections string you can refer to: http://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server-2008#p1
To change which database is being targeted, the web.config file must be edited, and at a minimum there are 3 options which must be changed to support each database - as per the table below:
SQLServer Express 2005 (and above)
Each database also uses a slightly different connection string format - the http://connectionstrings.com/ website provides useful details of each connection string format.
Example Connection String
User ID=SYSTEM;Password=password;Data Source=192.168.1.232:1521/orcl
SQL Server Express (user-attached database)
Data Source=.\SQLExpress;AttachDbFilename=C:\Program Files (x86)\Catch Limited\Enterprise Tests\Data\EnterpriseTester.mdf;Initial Catalog=EnterpriseTester;Trusted_Connection=Yes;
SQL Server (Integrated Security)
Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Initial Catalog=EnterpriseTester;Integrated Security=True;
SQL Server (SQL username/password)
Data Source=dbserver;Initial Catalog=EnterpriseTester;User Id=etuser;Password=etpass;
Before beginning, make sure you have a version of PostgreSQL that supports a column type of "uuid" (normally version 8.3 and later) as this is required by Enterprise Tester.
Oracle Database Configuration Notes when using Windows Server 2008r2
Enterprise Tester no longer ships with Oracle drivers. To use Enterprise Tester with an Oracle database you must download and install the Oracle ODP.Net drivers from the Oracle website (part of ODAC). You can install either 32bit:
We suggest using the XCopy deployment release.
Once the XCopy release is downloaded, you can unzip the xcopy file into a folder, then run the following command:
install.bat odp.net2 c:\oracle odac
Which will install the ODP.Net drivers into the GAC (Global Assembly Cache)
(see the readme.txt in the root of the ODAC xcopy zip file for further details).
At this point you will be able to configure Enterprise Tester to connect to an Oracle database.
Oracle Drivers are specific to 32bit and 64bit operating systems. You need to ensure that Enterprise Tester's application pool is configured with an identical setting.
